Postcard From Zimbabwe



Here’s a measure of how President Robert Mugabe is destroying this once lush nation of Zimbabwe:
In a week of surreptitious reporting here (committing journalism can be a criminal offense in Zimbabwe), ordinary people said time and again that life had been better under the old, racist, white regime of what was then called Rhodesia.  “When the country changed from Rhodesia to Zimbabwe, we were very excited,” one man, Kizita, told me in a village of mud-walled huts near this town in western Zimbabwe. “But we didn’t realize the ones we chased away were better and the ones we put in power would oppress us.”........The tragedy that has unfolded here can be reversed if Mr. Mugabe is obliged by international pressure, particularly from South Africa, to hold free elections. Worldwide pressure forced the oppressive Rhodesian regime to give up power three decades ago. Now we need similar pressure, from African countries as well as Western powers, to pry Mr. Mugabe’s fingers from his chokehold on a lovely country.......To Read More....
 
My Take - As usual these leftist writers are clueless.  There will be no international pressure to force Mugabe to do anything.  He's black, and he's a leftist.  What makes him a leftist? He's the center of the universe in his nation.  All is central planning - in this case central theft.  He's tyrannical, he cares not for his people, he's murderous, he's corrupt and he's president for life.  He's a leftist.
