Zimbabwe is one of the last outposts of tyranny along with Belarus, Burma, Cuba, Iran and Venezuela, not to mention dozens of other Mideastern countries, but I doubt the situation in that African country is going to last long.

While the internal pressure on Mugabe mounts on a daily basis, free world countries including Canada condemn Zimbabwe government.

Canada can play an important role across the African continent especially in Darfur, Zimbabwe and Horn of Africa where Islamic terrorists are regrouping to threaten the peace and stability of the region.

What a shame. One of the most prosperous nations in all of Africa and look at it today. I would imagine in the not too distant future we will all be doing food lifts to keep the people from starving.

Zimbabwe, the former bread basket of Africa.

I did not have time to read the articles, but I know that the opposition leader was beaten very badly when he went to court.

Also, Ethiopia and Somalia are having to fight another war that started Wednesday against al Qaida.

And the people sit around twiddling their fingers like twiddle-dee and twiddle-dumb...

Oh, I do like this new government's foreign policy. We are actually taking principled stands on things that matter --- and we're not blaming the Americans!!!!!!!!!

The spoiler in this is South Africa which tacitly supports Mugabe.

Coincidentally, South Africa is also providing Iran with diplomatic cover.

Sure enough, the news followed:
South Africa Seeks to Ease Proposed UN Sanctions On Iran

South Africa itself is going down the Zimbabwe sink hole without the world paying much attention.
