Could this be the "handwriting on the wall?"

Sounds terrifyingly familiar. Say one thing while doing another. These ideologues never stray from their original design.

“...Mugabe often talked about how he would turn Rhodesia into an archetypal Maoist state...”

He has succeeded. Zimbabwe now looks exactly like N. Korea, Albania, etc...

Ever since his disasterous press conference with his ridiculous "seal" stating, verus possumus, I have called this traitor "Opossum".

I will now begin to refer to him as Obamugabe and still refusing to ever use his given surname.

A few inside nuggets.

The original impetus for the massacres In Matebeleland was the disappearance of a group of tourists. Most likely they were killed by a rival faction of guerillas still in the bush, either as highwaymen, or in an effort to embarrass the government.

The Fifth brigade was sent in to find the tourists, and they instigated the massacres.

I can attest to the severe lowering of life expectancy there since I left 25 years ago.

Only a handful of the people that I knew then are still alive, yet they were mostly in their 20s and 30s, and some were children.

A majority likely died of AIDS, but cholera and other diseases of opportunuity killed others.

The country 25-30 years ago was truly a jewel.
