Sounds like they need voter ID cards.

Too bad the British Empire is dead; most of those people would be better off under their government, IMHO...

Yes, the British should bear the burden of making sure they're taken care of.

And yet Florida has a FARK tag and Zimbabwe doesn't.

What, they just have over 100,000 people over 100 years old on their rolls. which is impressive since their life expectancy is 51.

Nice parallel to America. Urban voters want the new guy, rural voters back the idiot.

Subby, you just need to face the fact that once again the will of the people has been heard. Mugabe has been a blessing for Zimbabwe - just look at all the millionaires and billionaires there.

I do like an election where you can hold your victory party the night before the vote.

Mugabe rigged an election? Who could've anticipated that!?

Florida matters. Zimbabwe? Not so much.

It's been four years since they got rid of the Zimbabwe dollar and inflation is now down to single digits. Do keep up.

So Zimbabwe is just like us then?
We have dead people voting, people voting more than once, and the black panthers scaring away white people.

But heaven forbid we have to show ID to prove we are alive and aren't voting more than once.

Just finished dinner with a Mugabe opposition spokesperson here at The Hague and went over the events of the Election Day play by play. Interesting conversation and wholly a result of western manipulation of zimbabwe's resources. Of course that's my opinion and is based of much more than the casual dinner - ie research and statements from others. I'd just throw in there that two characters have facilitated zimbabwe's nightmares and are never spoken of in the international arena because no one wants to tread on the sanctified South African ANC. Winnie Mandela and Thabo Mbeki were traitorous criminals in their own right but apart from their conduct in SA, their support and abuse of Zimbabweans raises their particular place in the hierarchy of eternal fires an extra few notches.

Let's just drop the rough numbers. Roughly a thousand people were killed as a result of their attempts to vote against Mugabe in the last 48 hours. At least 50,000 were refused access to the polling stations, and a much larger number were unable to vote because Mugabes people shut down polling stations in districts outside the easily controllable urban centers. Before noon the AU and EU were hailing the elections as a success and CNN followed suit by mid day EST in the US. I'm surprised that anyone questioned the fiasco at all, but I am saddened that Angela Merkel took a personal interest and as far as we can tell, Obama is still unaware.

That's my soap box for the week. I figured since I don't often get to The Hague, I won't have as reasonable a soap box for the foreseeable future ;)
