Senile Marxist Dodges Travel Ban

Quote:
Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has drawn applause and anger for a speech denouncing the UK's Tony Blair and US President George Bush at a UN event.

Mr Mugabe described the leaders as "unholy men" at the meeting in Rome.

The European Commission responded by saying the tirade justified a travel ban that the European Union imposed on the Zimbabwean leader.

The US accuses Mr Mugabe of starving his people and has said his presence at the food summit is "disheartening".

Mr Mugabe defended his land reforms that have seen thousands of farmers evicted and said rich nations' farm subsidies were "crippling" the poor.

Some delegates to the Rome meeting applauded Mr Mugabe's condemnation of the Western leaders on several occasions during his speech and then at the end.

Read on theres more in there, great to see a man who has single handedly wiped out his nations agricultural base, struck hard at his opposition and declared all out war on the poor is still able to travel to a UN conference and recieve (some) applause.

It is interesting that this is being highlighted, whereas the absurd hissy-fit thrown by the UK and Dutch ambassadors to Malaysia recently, where they walked out of a speech given by ex-Malaysian PM Dr Mahathir Mohamed, owing to his criticisms of Western interference in Iraq (I guess they approve of 'freedom', but have a problem with Muslim leaders actually voicing a goddamn opinion).

As I said, interesting choice of thread. And interesting coverage by the UK media. Say no more.

Sticks and stones.

Malaysia has not in the recent past associated itself with an illegal invasion.

Mugabe is a disgrace. He's wrecked his country. What was he doing at a U.N. function? Shame on whoever invited him.
