ZIMBABWE TO U.S. AND BRITAIN: GO HANG

ZIMBABWE TO U.S. AND BRITAIN: GO HANG

Malcom Lagauche

Zimbabwean spokesman George Charamba tells colonialists to "go hang."


July 2, 2008

The U.S. and Britain just can’t allow a country in its crosshairs to function on its own. Both imperialist nations are calling for more sanctions on Zimbabwe. To many Westerners, sanctions are a slap on the wrist, but the truth is different. As we saw with Iraq, sanctions are no less than murder without firing bullets.

On July 1, 2008, according to an Al Jazeera news article titled, "African Leaders Urge Zimbabwe Unity:"

But the US has prepared UN sanctions in response to Mugabe's re-election.

James McGee, the US ambassador to Zimbabwe, told Al Jazeera that African nations had to focus on Zimbabwe in the aftermath of the disputed election.

"No matter what type of statement comes out of the African Union we still believe that the diplomatic process must be a robust one. We have to work with the diplomatic community across Africa to ensure that the diplomatic light stays on Zimbabwe.

"[Mugabe’s government] cannot hide in the dark and continue its nefarious practices. We want the world to see what is happening in Zimbabwe."

What a bunch of self-serving horse manure. McGee has undertaken deeds that are not a part of the job resume for an ambassador. He has been a thorn in the side of the Zimbabwean government and has actively worked with the opposition to assist in the overthrow of the government. If anything, McGee should thank Mugabe for not throwing him out of the country. In most countries of the world, if an ambassador was involved with shenanigans like McGee has performed, he/she would have been escorted to an international airport with a one-way ticket back to Washington.

The U.S. is no country to lecture others on the legitimacy of elections. Just look at all the discrepancies of the 2000 and the 2004 U.S. national elections and they far surpass anything that can be construed as shady by the Zimbabwean government.

The main point here is that the U.S. is once again trying to have its own stooges put in power by elections in foreign countries. The list of U.S. active involvement in elections of nations is long: Bosnia, Serbia, Ukraine, Belarus, Iraq, Nicaragua and Venezuela are some of the more blatant incursions. In the case of Bosnia and Serbia, the U.S. unilaterally negated elections. The reason? According to Madeleine Albright, "The wrong side won."

After a few decades of backing off the affairs of foreign nations, Britain is again attempting to regain an empire on which the sun never sets. And, the Labour Party, not the Conservatives, is in the forefront of the copycat imperialism. The U.S. copied Britain and now Britain is copying the U.S.

Zimbabwe is not about to take the outside infringement laying down. The country called elections according to its constitution and the opposition declined to field a candidate. The leader of the opposition to Mugabe, Morgan Tsvangirai, fled the country and returned. Shortly after, he took refuge at the embassy of The Netherlands. Despite his odd activities, he accuses the Zimbabwean government of not having fair elections because there was only one candidate. He does not mention that the only reason for there being only one candidate is that he disappeared and stated he would not run.

On July 1, 2008, Zimbabwean spokesman George Charamba addressed the issue of outside interference in Zimbabwe politics. According to CNN News:

George Charamba, a spokesman for Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, told reporters at the African Union summit in Egypt: "The way out is a way defined by the Zimbabwean people, free from outside interference, and that is exactly what will resolve the matter. "For as long as there are some external interests that are seeking to express themselves within our own politics, then naturally we have that kind of resistance because for us it recalls a certain experience, ugly experience we have gone through before, that of colonialism."

When asked specifically about Britain's influence in the election -- and criticism of the Mugabe government -- Charamba bristled. "They can go and hang," he said. "They can go and hang a thousand times, they have no basis, they have no claim on Zimbabwean politics at all and that is exactly the issue."

With the U.S. blatantly leading a movement to re-colonize Africa, I’m sure we have not heard the end of this segment of Zimbabwe’s history. If Barak Obama is elected president of the U.S., the program will advance to overdrive mode. Sudan and Zimbabwe already have large bullseyes affixed to them on a map of Africa.
