World Fiddles While Zimbabwens Die

Bret Stephens suggests what to do about the genocidal regime of Robert Mugabe.

Money Q:

"A solution for Zimbabwe's crisis isn't hard to come by: Someone – ideally the British – must remove Mr. Mugabe by force, install Mr. Tsvangirai as president, arm his supporters, prevent any rampages, and leave. "Saving Darfur" is a somewhat different story, but it also involves applying Western military force to whatever degree is necessary to get Khartoum to come to terms with an independent or autonomous Darfur. Burma? Same deal.

"International relations theorists, including prominent Obama adviser Susan Rice, justify these sorts of interventions under the rubric of a "Responsibility to Protect" – a concept that comes oddly close to Kipling's White Man's Burden. So close, in fact, that its inherent paternalism has hitherto inhibited many liberals from endorsing the kinds of interventions toward which they are now tip-toeing, thousands of deaths too late."

But it's too close to what the Bush Administration did in Iraq to Saddam's regime. So you know, forget it.

Killer quote!


While we’re here, let us talk about Zimbabwe and the ongoing Lib hypocrisy associated with that place…

In recent years blacks there have been stealing white owned farms, farms that have been in families for generations, by sometimes raping and murdering to owners in an effort to drive them out. This violent racism –based solely on skin color- has been government sanctioned and encourage as some sort of bitter paybacks for whitey. It has been worse even than Appartied was in South Africa that caused so many bleeding hearts to weep uncontrollably and to this day they still use in their never ending scoldings about white racism and colonialism blahblahblah. Also today there is similar reverse appartied taking place in S. Africa.

So where is the Lib and international outrage and outcry for this violent reverse racism farm theft? The silence has been deafening from Lib apologist hypocrites who ever whine about white racism while giving even worse black racism a pass, this time on a grand scale.

Further, when the farms were white owned, Zim was the agricultural center of the Darks Continent. Food was plentiful and they even exported great amounts to surrounding nations. But since the lazy blacks stole whitey’s farms, now the country can’t even feed itself.

Gotta love all that racial retribution in the name of redistribution and "fairness". And apologist Libs look the other way…

We should carpet bomb Zimbabwe. But even if we bombed them back to the Stone Age would anyone even notice the difference?

Africa can’t handle democracy. Maybe after a few more thousand years of civilization…
