{June 25, 2008}   Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe

“We fought for this country, and a lot of blood was shed. We are not going to give up our country because of a mere X. How can a ballpoint fight with a gun?”

-Robert Mugabe, President – Zimbabwe

How can the world let a man who blatantly says this – whose military has killed 6 opposition supporters, injured thousands more and run off his main presidential rival by contesting an unnecessary runoff election essentially at the point of a gun – remain in power? How can we declare Saddam Hussein the second coming of Hitler while this man runs roughshod over his people? Please – Morgan Tzvangirai is imploring armed international peacekeepers to come to Zimbabwe to restore order and oversee a legitimate, peaceful election – the man is not asking for anything at all unreasonable. I hope the international community does not make the same mistakes it did with Rwanda, Darfur, etc. Let’s fix this, and fix it now.
