UNITED NATIONS - The African leader some call a hero and others a destructive despot suggests people in his country aren't hungry, they just can't eat their favorite food.

This garbage is from the AP? "The African leader some call a hero and others a destructive despot"???? Who is calling Mugabe a hero, how many of them are they, and who cares? The writer is simply trying to bury the fact that Mugabe is a monster, by pretending this is mitigated somehow because "some" people, unnamed, consider him a "hero" for reasons unspecified.

Let's try this kind of mealy-mouthed obfuscation on a similar, but bigger, historical example: "Stalin, the Soviet leader some call a hero and others a destructive despot suggests people in his country aren't hungry, they just can't eat their favorite food. 'Let the Ukrainians and Kulaks eat grass or tree bark' opined the Soviet leader, hero of the Russian Revolution and Civil War."

Wasn't Stalin the one who tried to grow corn in the Ukraine, instead of wheat like usual, and the crop failed for some reason and millions of people died in the resulting famine?
