If Mugabe and other Zimbabwe Politburo and cabinet ministers sold off their expensive government-purchased cars and other luxury perks there should be no problem using that money to buy the wheat that has been sitting upaid for in Beira.

He's waiting for it to spoil, so he can get a

Mugabe and his thugs should live among the people

faster.

Paul...Interesting post but
Who and where are these "Commonwealth Special Forces"?.
Who is going to supply this Food and Medical aid?
Where will the "White farmers" come from, do you think any of them ever want to see the country again?

Enjoy your turkey...I am sure it's better than eating rat or the cat.
