A great article on the Zimbabwe crisis from the Spectator's Peter Oborne. Link via a post from Common Sense. It's good to see some US interest in Zimbabwe. Pity that Mugabe isn't suspected of harbouring weapons of mass destruction which would certainly result in a bit more urgency in US attempts (have there been any?) to oust this tyrant. Perhaps greater note should be taken of the fact that the country has become an enclave of Libya by virtue of Mugabe having exchanged strategic Zimbabwe state assets for short term supply of oil from the Libyan Tamoil company.
