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.

Yes,but it won't happen. And there should be no more aid until it does.

He's waiting for it to spoil, so he can get a
discount.
Mugabe and his thugs should live among the people
and do without food, and medicine, water, and power. I bet things would improve quite a bit
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?
