THE END OF THE RAINBOW…

By ATWadmin On July 22nd, 2008 at 6:24 pm

Wonder what you make of the news that South African police have forcefully removed
hundreds of immigrants from temporary shelters where they had taken
refuge from xenophobic attacks? Authorities say the immigrants, who were taken to a repatriation
centre in Johannesburg, had not registered with the home affairs
department.So, they are going to be booted OUT of the Rainbow Nation. With the international political left lionising South Africa post-apartheid I wonder if they also agree that the UK could take a LESSON from Mr Mbeki and his pals and boot out all our illegal immigrants? Or perhaps there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…??

LISTEN TO WHAT THE MAN SAYS…

By ATWadmin On July 1st, 2008 at 3:40 pm

I think we should listen carefully to Robert Mugabe. I mean he HAS been elected to his position, the people have spoken (well, squeaked in a fearful manner, I guess) and it’s time we paid attention to the great man, this African lion. So when one of his close advisers tell us to "Go Hang" we should. Hang him. Mugabe has no interest in democracy and sadly for his poor people he happens to be on the right continent to get away with this. It’s good to see some African leaders stirring against him but too many secretly admire the strong-man approach. Execution would be best for Mugabe – surely that’s black and white?

THE TRAGIC FAILURE OF LEADERSHIP….

By ATWadmin On June 26th, 2008 at 8:07 am

It’s been FORCED out of him. I refer to Nelson Mandela weak as ditchwater condemnation of thetragic failure of leadership”  in Zimbabwe. As weeks of political violence seemed to guarantee the Zimbabwean president’s re-election tomorrow, Mr Mandela finally broke his silence on the crisis unfolding in the southern African country. His intervention, made during a speech in London last night, follows criticism of the former South African president for failing to speak out against Mr Mugabe.

Note how Mandela does not single out Mugabe by name. Note how the "tragic failure" is non-specific. When Mugabe was murdering white farmers – where was Mandela? When Mugabe was brutalising those black Zimbabweans who opposed him – where was Mandela? There HAS been a tragic failure of leadership – and it is that of Nelson Mandela.

ANYONE FOR CRICKET?

By ATWadmin On June 24th, 2008 at 7:53 am

Wonder what you make of the news that Zimbabwe will play in cricket’s World Twenty 20 Cup in England next year – threatening to make a mockery of Gordon Brown’s pledge to ‘stand up’ to Robert Mugabe. Earlier this year, the Prime Minister made clear that he planned to bring in a ban in protest at the tyrant’s regime. And as the former British colony sunk further into bloodshed and chaos at the hands of Mugabe’s thugs, it was confirmed yesterday that Zimbabwe’s team will compete in the cricketing showcase.

Can I say that I think this is a good idea?

Invite the Zimbabwaen cricketeers, and ensure Mugabe himself comes over to Blighty.

Then arrest him, put him on trlal for war crimes, and execute him.

Howzat?

MUGABE PREVAILS…

By ATWadmin On June 22nd, 2008 at 12:35 pm

Robert_Mugabe.jpgI fully understand and agree with the decision of  Zimbabwe’s opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai to pull out of the presidential run-off on 27 June. The decision, taken at a meeting of the leadership of the Movement for Democratic Change in Harare, means Robert Mugabe will remain as president.  The MDC says the decision comes after at least 70 of its supporters have been killed in the run-up to the poll. President Robert Mugabe says the opposition is behind the violence. On Sunday, the opposition was due to stage a rally in the capital – the highlight of the campaign. But supporters of Mr Mugabe’s Zanu-PF occupied the stadium and roads leading up to it – and reportedly beat up opposition activists.

It is IMPOSSIBLE for a free and fair election to be held in Zimbabwe and this situation will remain will the wicked Mugabe stays in power. Thanks to the almost complete indifference of the African Union this situation is likely to prevail with the Marxist tyrant Mugabe keeping hold of the reins of power at ALL COSTS. I think Mr Tsvangiri and his associates are brave people, trying their best to oppose the monster that sits in power but they could have not have won this election since Mugabe has so perverted the democratic system that only a result acceptable to him is permissible.

What is happening in Zimbabwe is a crying shame. I’ve been writing about it for some time now here on ATW and each time I cover it I cannot help feeling a sense of sorrow for those many Zimbabweans left to the tender mercies of Mugabe because fellow African political leaders – South African IN PARTICULAR – just shrug their shoulders and look the other way. Where is Saint Nelson Mandela on this one, for example?

TIME FOR AN ACT OF GOD…

By ATWadmin On June 20th, 2008 at 7:44 pm

I was reading that marxist thug Robert Mugabe has vowed to remain president of Zimbabwe whatever the outcome of next week’s election, saying "only God" could remove him from office. 

Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since 1980, said the opposition Movement for Democratic Change would not be allowed to assume power if it won the presidential run-off poll on June 27. "The MDC will never be allowed to rule this country – never ever," Mr Mugabe, 84, told a meeting of business people in Bulawayo. "Only God who appointed me will remove me, not the MDC, not the British."

OK. Time to abandon the election and time for an act of God –  a British bullet in this monster’s head. This is  not a tenable situation and Mugabe needs taken out once and for all.

AFRICAN SHAME

By ATWadmin On June 12th, 2008 at 8:46 am

First the facts.

"The men who pulled up in three white pickup trucks were looking for Patson Chipiro, head of the Zimbabwean opposition party in Mhondoro district. His wife, Dadirai, told them he was in Harare but would be back later in the day, and the men departed.  An hour later they were back. They grabbed Mrs Chipiro and chopped off one of her hands and both her feet. Then they threw her into her hut, locked the door and threw a petrol bomb through the window. The killing last Friday – one of the most grotesque atrocities committed by Robert Mugabe’s regime since independence in 1980 – was carried out on a wave of worsening brutality before the run-off presidential elections in just over two weeks."

You will recall that Mr Mugabe was allowed by the EU  to travel to Rome last week to attend a UN Food conference -of all things. He is still feted in some quarters at least as a world leader; he is admired by other tyrannical African leaders; and yet this sort of gross atrocity is carried out by his henchmen back home. What to do? Well, the truth is that options are limited. I guess it is for those neighbouring African countries to DO something, and South Africa in particular. But we all know that gutless Mbeke won’t do anything and so the only conclusion that can be drawn is that human life is viewed cheap on the dark continent and genocidal maniacs like Mugabe get away with murder – literally. What a crying shame.

BRITAIN FUNDS SOMALI GENOCIDE…

By ATWadmin On June 2nd, 2008 at 8:33 am

I’m not really that shocked to read that millions of pounds of British taxpayers’ money is being used to support a government in Somalia accused of human rights abuses and war crimes. The money is supposed to be used to strengthen security and democracy, but it appears that it is in fact financing a police force filled with militiamen and led by one of the country’s most notorious warlord, Abdi Hasan Awale Qaybdib.

The Somali Government survives on foreign donations, channelled through the UN Development Programme. The British Department for International Development (DfID) is the second-largest donor – behind the European Commission – to UN programmes supporting the Transitional Federal Government, having committed £11 million to date. More than £10 million, including £2.5 million of British money, is being used to refurbish government buildings, cover running costs and provide technical assistance. Members of the Somali parliament, many of whom earned their seats through military muscle, receive a monthly stipend of £600.

It’s a perfect storm. The UN oversees it, the EU and UK fund it – and the Somali warlords use it.

DO NOTHING…

By ATWadmin On April 17th, 2008 at 7:20 am

Great to see that arch-hypocrite Thabo "Crisis? What crisis?" Mbeki forced into trying to defend "his record" in Zimbabwe at the UN yesterday. Of course this defence comes to the simple policy of doing nothing.  Mbeki’s complete failure to exert pressure on the thug Mugabe has been apparent for years now but all of a sudden even the MSM seems to have cottoned on to this indolence.  Doing nothing, however, is really what the UN does best and so Mbeki seems admirably qualified to lead a discussion now how the UN could work with the African Union to bring peace to Africa’s conflicts, from Somalia to Sudan’s Darfur region.  All talk, no action – it’s what the UN is there for!

“NO CRISIS” IN ZIMBABWE

By ATWadmin On April 12th, 2008 at 8:30 pm

You can always rely on some African political leaders to call it wrong. South African leader Thabo Mbeki has said there is no crisis in Zimbabwe and patience should be exercised over the election outcome. Watch the video. Mbeke is a first grade clown, and his apparent fondness for the tyrant Mugabe is profoundly disturbingOf COURSE there is a crisis in Zimbabwe for make noe mistake Mugabe intends to retain power  -even against the will of the Zimbabwean people. Perhaps that is what makes him such a heroic figure for fellow African leaders?
