Fingers crossed that support is slipping away, according to this article today in the Irish Times:

http://www.ireland.com/newspaper/fro...343499793.html


Too little too late. To what effect is all this support? Damn South Africa and their policy of quiet diplomacy. Mugabe has ruined the country. It is in a state of disrepair.

Perhaps HRH could direct a few lads from the SAS to go down there and remove it from him personally. Whilst in His Presence they might also drop a grenade down his benighted trousers.
The spectre of a western government taking him out could be enough to plunge the country into civil war. Lets not forget that >45% didn't vote for the MDC.

Let's not forgot that several ballot boxes were more than likely stuffed with fake votes and the police and army were no doubt under orders to vote "correctly" or lose their jobs.

If we've learnt anything from Iraq it is that governance, no matter how brutal or corrupt is better than anarchy... which is the status quo over there.

Sorry, have to disagree with this. How many examples would you like?
  • Stalin
  • Hitler
  • Milosevic
  • Jong-Il
  • Pol Pot
Anarchy would have clearly been preferable, at least to the millions who died under these tyrants.

Re: The game is up Mr Mugabe

Tyrannic dictators have to be overthrown, even if temporary chaos and anarchy ensues. In Iraq right now there's chaos, but at least there's hope. Hope is something the people of Iraq did not have when Saddam was in power. The same goes for Zimbabweans. The sooner Mugabe is overthrown, the better.

She'll probably send the SAS down to the mountains to do a bit of rodent extermination if you insist on demoting HM back to HRH.

Wow unelected royalty takes Knighthood away from another unelected or semi elected douche bag. What is Mugu gonna do now?

Why not ask the Iraqis in Iraq? Hope is a nice word to use sitting in the comfort of your home S. Africa's role has been very disappointing in kicking the douche bag Mugu out!

Edit- Nelson Mandela speaks out against Mugu finally.

Quote:
Former South African leader Nelson Mandela has added his voice to the growing international condemnation of the political violence in Zimbabwe.
In his first public comments about the crisis, he noted "the tragic failure of leadership" of President Robert Mugabe.

Yeah, instead of biting him from faraway they should make a decisive move to send the troops like Americans did in Iraq down there and wipe ex-accoladed Mr. Rob's ass!!

Well, yes, of course, everyone knows this, you, you... commoner.

I was referring to HIS Royal Highness, her husband, the Greek lad. To suggest that Her Majesty, lovely old lady that she is, would ever get her hands dirty with anything other than a bit of ol' axle grease is, well, frankly, most upsetting.

Now please **** off.

He's got form - that nice chap at Harrod's reckons he done in his son and daughter-in-law. He also told me about the aliens he's friends with. I do wish they'd give him a passport...

You beat me to it.

I guess the world did not need evidence that the vote was rigged. But seeing it is extremely creepy and even more maddening.
