#1 No one is buying your crap Mbeki. Mugabe is the reason his country is a hell hole and you are an enabler. Dr Rice is only saying what you lack the balls to say.

#2 M-Be : Look at the bright side. Zimbabwe is in the big leagues now. Africa got noticed! Bad Bob is up there with Crazy Kim, the magic Mullahs, Lucky Lukashenko, the General who's not Burmese, and Fidel who lives forever.

#3 The real reason, IMHO, that Mbeki is upset is because HE has aspiration to hit the same kind of despotic state as Bad Bob. You see, BB started off as an elected president and simply made good on his Marxist ambitions. The camels nose in the tent, one little bit at a time. BB definitely needs and hot-lead enema, along with most of the government.

#5 Here you go Steve:


See them there, the starving masses
See him there, the well fed chief,
Bob the chief, chief, chief...

#7 Mbeki is trying to not alienate two factions: the die-hard ANC (who think what Mugabe did is fine and should've happened in S.A. - yesterday) and the Moderates/Indians/Asians/Anglos/Boers.

The former would replace him, probably quickly, likely violently. The latter would leave S.A. and wreck the country. Not that Mbeki would mind seeing the latter go - just not at this point in time.
