With all respect, it was British intervention itself which painted Zimbabwe into this corner. It wasn't an armed intervention; but it was just as deadly -- or worse. It was an attack on an entire nation, with the express purpose of (1) showing Africans that so long as Europeans aren't at the helm of a country's governance that country cannot survive; and (2) to dissuade any person of African decent, looking in at Zimbabwe, from believing that nationalism is a proper course to take.
How about this one?
Removing tyrannical rulers is a starting point on the road to failure; vacuums are created with their removal. It seems crass to say but do we really want another Iraq? Mugabe is an old man, his time on this world is going short once he is gone the country will correct itself saving thousands of lives in another botched and illconcieved (sic) invation (sic).
That leftie is too stupid to see the flaw in his own argument. Wouldn't Mugabe's death also lead to power vacuum, only one that occurs later than an invasion would? And how many more deaths would occur in the interim? I guess to lefties, African lives aren't worth saving.
There's more, of course.
As for Zimbabwe it should be noted that its people are sovereign unto themselves; therefore they should be able to sort out Mugabe if they want to. If they stick with him, its their problem, not ours.
They stick with him at the point of a firearm.
Let nature take its course. There are too many people on the planet as it is.
Nice one. Very humane.
Of course I am sympathetic to the plight of the Zimbabwian (sic) poeple (sic), who couldn't be & for sure that despot Mugabe should have been removed from power years ago.
However, Britain should not consider opening up another war front as we have enough on our plates with Iraq, Afghanistan and domestic terroism (sic). Let someone else act as the Worlds (sic) policeman, maybe Russia or perhaps China.
We need to retreat to our island fortress and bring our boys home.
Ah yes, you're very sympathetic. A very good person indeed.
Are you lefties proud?
