Zimbabwe had an election.
The ruling party led by Mugabe expected to win and were totally surprised to find they had lost. Their usual tactics of bribes and intimidation had failed. A country with 80% unemployment and a 200,000% inflation rate [ a beer costs $50,000,000 !- no kidding]had had enough. What to do?
The Govt plays for time and 2 weeks later still refuses to publish the election results, but why?. How long do you need to stuff ballot boxes with false votes, do a recount and declare yourself winner?

What are they waiting for?

* Story Highlights
* Ship carrying 3 million rounds of ammunition, mortars, rockets, paper reports
* Chinese freighter anchored off Durban, South Africa
* Proper procedures for arms transfers followed, South Africa says

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) -- South Africa will not intervene to stop a shipment of Chinese-made weapons from reaching Zimbabwe, even though the political situation in the neighboring nation is "dire," a government spokesman said Thursday.

Spokesman Themba Maseko said as long as administrative papers are in order, South Africa cannot intervene to prevent weapons being transported through its territory to its landlocked neighbor, despite concerns about mounting tensions in Zimbabwe.

But he issued the strongest comment on Zimbabwe so far by the South African government, saying: "When elections are held and results are not released two weeks after, it is obviously of great concern. The situation is dire."

The ship, the An Yue Jiang, was anchored just outside Durban harbor after receiving permission late Wednesday to dock.

The Beeld newspaper reported it is carrying nearly 3 million rounds of ammunitions for small arms and AK-47s, about 3,500 mortars and mortar launchers, as well as 1,500 rockets for rocket-propelled grenades. The paper said it had a copy of the ship's cargo documentation, <span style="color: #FF0000">finalized on April 1 -- three days after Zimbabwe's election.</span>

A South African government official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, confirmed that there were weapons on board but gave no further details. Durban port authorities and police explosives inspectors could not be reached for comment.

Defense Secretary January Masilela confirmed to South African radio that the National Conventional Arms Control Committee granted approval for the transit of the weapons. </div></div>

The day after the Govt was supposed to publish the results they make an order for weapons.... which they will undoubtedly use against their own people and nobody does anything? SA are actually helping Mugabe oppress his own people by allowing passage.

Just one F-16 could take out that whole shipment and save a lot of lives in Zimbabwe.
Bush, Blair and now Brown say they are for freedom but they are selective. This upcoming tragedy can be stopped but are they interested?

Lets see what happens.

I thought the last debate just showed some of Gayle's points of how weak a candidate Obama is and would be in the general election.

He seems to be ever bit the fraud she has said.
