Of course all this thread is, is a roundabout bash on Iraq, again. But keep trying, it's entertaining if nothing else.
lol...good to see you care about your fellow man! glad you can think on my behalf too, but i can tell you from now i couldn't give a flying fist %&$# about Bush or the "mission accomplished" in Iraq. Its a legitimate question, one which you think has some round about meaning...We've seen opposition leaders being bashed, refused travel & a nation starving because of a leader that has no moral conscience...and the best the world can come up with is more sanctions. if it wasn't such a desperate situation it'd be laughable.

Because this quote sounds exactly like something Bush did, and I can assure you 077 opposes the action in Iraq.
so what if i oppose the Iraq war...it has nothing to do with this thread so don't try and put words in my mouth or divert from the issue that is Zimbabwe! you haven't earnt that right, champ. I can make the distinction between Iraq & Zimbabwe...i actually give a shit about the planet and the people who inhabit it...its a shame others didn't feel the same.

How is it that someone from Angola who starts a thread about Zimbabwe, a local country, is a bash on Bush?
i'm from australia...
i really couldn't give a shit who gets rid of Mugabe..fact is that he needs to go & go soon for the benefit of the people & the nation, its not about to happen at the ballot box because the govt has to much control over elections. It just astounds me that we're willing to make the nation suffer even more by imposing sanctions that don't hit the regime, but directly affect the population. when have sanctions ever hurt those in power? there hasn’t been enough African pressure on Zimbabwe. I know President Obasanjo of Nigeria was prepared to be very tough but President Mbeki of South Africa was never prepared to be very tough with Mugabe. If those two, South Africa and Nigeria, had been able to lead a general southern African push to try and get Zimbabwe to reform its ways, then I think that could have been effective.
surely its in Sth Africas best interests to have a successful Zimbabwe? they already have a huge problem with illegal immigrants from Zimbabwe, its affecting the unemployment problems that south africa already has.
