Tsvangirai had no choice


In the face of widespread threats and bloodshed, with almost a hundred people killed already by Mugabe's thugs as they cling to power, Morgan Tsvangirai had no choice but to call off his participation in the weekend's 'election.'  Any idea the elections are either free or fair is farcical.  Blogger 'Adam Smith' has the cartoon above, and this comment that sums up the situation:

A madman who thinks he is appointed by God; unleashed his army of thugs on his people so that he can retain power. The world stands by and does nothing.

  1. I strongly disagree. People will die, regardless of whether Morgan runs or not. Now instead of dying for freedom from tyranny they'll die of starvation and disease. And from "war veterans" torturing them.
    This was the MDC's best chance ever to get anywhere near defeating Mad Bob.
    But perhaps I am too hasty. Maybe somewhere along the way they have come to the realisation that the only way to get rid of Bob is by the bullet. They have tried the democratic way for nought.
