WikiTerror In Zimbabwe

WikiTerror In Zimbabwe

Heroes of the American Left, Bradley Manning and Julian Assange, have destroyed the best hope for ridding Zimbabwe of madman Robert Mugabe by releasing U.S. State Department cables of communications  between Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, the leading opponent of Mugabe, and U.S. and E.U. officials, in which Tsvangirai secretly expressed support for sanctions against the brutal Mugabe regime as the only way to establish democracy in Zimbabwe.

As reported by Christopher Albon, the result of the leak of the cable has been to enable Mugabe to continue his reign of terror and to put the opposition leader’s life at risk:

The reaction in Zimbabwe was swift. Zimbabwe’s Mugabe-appointed attorney general announced he was investigating the Prime Minister on treason charges based exclusively on the contents of the leaked cable. While it’s unlikely Tsvangirai could be convicted on the contents of the cable alone, the political damage has already been done. The cable provides Mugabe the opportunity to portray Tsvangirai as an agent of foreign governments working against the people of Zimbabwe. Furthermore, it could provide Mugabe with the pretense to abandon the coalition government that allowed Tsvangirai to become prime minister in 2009.

Perhaps all the people raising money for Assange and Manning will raise money for Tsvangari, not that it would do much good when Mugabe’s thugs come calling in the middle of the night.

The blood of the Zimbabwe people, and the terror they will endure, are on the hands of Manning, Assange, and their supporters.

Update:  Competing Hypotheses blog reported on this a couple of days ago, Mugabe looks to pin ‘treason’ on the opposition.

But, but, but, my college professor told me in 1986 that Mugabe represented democratic change in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe. Gosh, you mean he was wrong? I'm so very shocked!

OK, not really.

Eh! No biggie! As Julian Assange would say, the people of Zimbabwe needed to know this; a few lives are lost? Feh! The people's right to know trump their right to life.

I wonder how the families of Mugabe's victims feel about this latest development.

Mugabe is a dictatorial thug… end of story.

Assange is nothing more than a traitorous thug and yes I believe that he should face treason charges because he has put so many lives at risk.

Perhaps Assange and company actually WANT Mugabe to remain in power, and increase his iron grip on the country? This is also assuming that the documents released by Wikileaks are not bogus, substantially altered from their original content, or otherwise manipulated in such a way to support Assange's agenda, whatever twisted outcome it is expected to bring. Quite frankly, I am a bit surprised that so many world leaders are taking these leaks as the absolute truth — why aren't more people questioning their authenticity or the accuracy and completeness of their content? Something smells fishy here…

And now for something completely different.

My wife commented yesterday as we saw the umpteenth piece of video showing Assange either leaving/entering a building or armored vehicle that he looks like the subject/work of a sketch artist – not unlike the ones seen when a child molester is on the loose.

Gee, maybe whilst pondering the decision to release the cables, Julian Assange decided to take his "historic lead" from former President Jimmy Carter, who readers may recall was critically instrumental in assuring that the avowed Marxist, Robert Mugabe became the leader of Zimbabwe in the first place, lo those many, many bloody decades ago!

That, in spite of the fact that Abel Muzorewa had actually won the first democratic election, one for which President Carter and his lead man on the scene, Andrew Young, insisted required a "do over."

As quoted in the above-linked Weekly Standard article from 2008, said Carter's UN Ambassador, Andrew Young, at the time, "I find that I am fascinated by his intelligence, by his dedication. The only thing that frustrates me about Robert Mugabe is that he is so damned incorruptible."

What "prescience," eh?

And, it took nearly thirty years — until 2008 — for Carter to finally disavow Mugabe and his long reign of terror and genocide, all while persistently blowing black on United States foreign policy initiatives far and wide, during each ensuing Republican Administration!

So, Julian Assange has now just ensured the prolongation of the unspeakable suffering that the people of Zimbabwe have already endured for a few generations now, originally brought right to their doorstep by none other than the man from Plains!

As I recall there was a very nasty incident involving Mugabe and Zimbabwe. It was Entebe.

As I also recall, Carter the Weak, was also instrumental in ensuring that Ayatollah Khomenei took control in Iran. As I recall, Carter the Weak fawned all over Khomenei because he was "a religious man".

The example of Iran is a good reason to ensure that there is always total separation of religion and Sate, which I remind people means that there will NOT be a State religion.
