Mugabe Slips Into Fantasy Land

President Robert Mugabe is moving further and further from having a grasp as to the reality of what is happening in his land. The cholera death rate has passed one thousand, three million people have fled the country to South Africa in search of work, the inflation rate is astronomical and soon will require issuing one billion dollar notes. In his latest speech he ranted on about “Zimbabwe is mine” and insisted his nation’s problems are all caused by British colonialism and western powers seeking to overthrow his inept regime. Mugabe is moving toward even ending the pretense of a coalition government and simply ruling, as always, a one man government. An official of his Zanu-PF party insisted< “With or without the MDC, the government will have to be formed.” The only hope for Zimbabwe is by means of an outside invasion by forces of the African Union in an attempt to save people’s lives. Mugabe simply has no connection with reality and it is criminal to allows such a deranged individual to cause death of thousands.

    What we have here is a failure to communicate!
    Robert Mugabe is without doubt the most wondrous person on the face of the earth. He continues to lead his “country,” despite the whole world being against him.
    His policies have caused the collapse of the once proud economic status of Zimbabwe, inflation is at a record, Zimbabwean currency, is completely worthless and yet Mr. Mugabe, continues to rule the country like there is no tomorrow.
    One cannot help but doubt the sanity of a person, who, while his country burns to the ground, continues to act like there is nothing wrong. He lives now, in an “Alice-in-Wonderland,” kind of world, where he is right and everyone else is wrong.
    Given the mental status of such a person, isn’t there someone who will step up and lead this country out of the hell-hole that has been created by Robert Mugabe? Morgan Tsvangirai
    must be that person. He at least has use of his faculties and will listen to the rest of the world’s leaders and work for the good of his country.
    One can only hope that this is so.
    This situation must be analogous to the situation of Nero fiddling while Rome burned, and Nero was the true cause of the fire that left almost all of Rome burned to the ground.
    In much the same way, Robert Mugabe’s policies have raped and pillaged the once proud country and left it destitute, without a currency, without a successor for an orderly transition of power and without any world backing for the myriad of problems that exist in Zimbabwe.
