Heads you lose, Tails you lose !


Robert Mugabe and Hilary Clinton are just different sides of the same coin. Mugabe refuses to admit defeat in the Zimbabwean elections and Clinton refuses to give up her fight to become the Democratic Party candidate in the U.S primary elections. Mugabe has divided his country with terror. Clinton is dividing her party, who are becoming scared because the division may effect the result of the final ballot against the Republicans. Still at least the Americans have the opportunity for free and fair elections. Ooops, forgot the Florida Fiasco a few years back with the allegations of vote rigging. The same coin, and it’s global value keeps falling.

Florida is not even the worst one. Look into all of Diebold's practices nationwide. Check out Ohio's 2004 (s)election. Check out Chuck Hagel's "surprising" win in 1996 to the U.S. senate, he owned the company that manufactured the very machines that voted him into office. Check out Max Cleland vs Saxby Chambliss. Voter fraud is getting to the point where it's EXPECTED. I live here and am disgusted at how few people are aware of this!

I can’t claim to be an expert on American politics. But it seems that Hilary is very reluctant to accept defeat and get behind her current Democratic rival.
Scratch below the surface and Hilary is not a very nice person at all. But then I guess you don’t get to be the most powerful person in the world by being ‘Nice‘.
I just wonder if Barack has the political experience/gravitas/nouse at home and on the world stage to step up to the mike.

Mugabe will be there until he dies as far as I see it. As a male African leader, to step down now would mean such a huge loss of face in both political and tribal terms that he just could not contemplate it.
Also a lot of African nations still look up to him, which is why they are reluctant to put any meaningful pressure on him to go. Add to that the inherent corruption in Africa, political palms being greased etc. and it don’t look good. Particularly for his people.
The old ‘Colonial Britain’ card that he keeps playing in response to any criticism from here is played out though.
As soon as you hear him trotting that one out each time then that’s when he does sound weak.
