"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Sounds like Thabo Mbeki is just washing his hands of the mess. Unfortunately by still refusing to even pass along a single bad word for the murder and oppression of Mugabe he is giving Comrade Bob free rein to do as he pleases.

President Thabo Mbeki said on Wednesday it was up to Zimbabwe's leadership to tackle the country's internal political strife through dialogue.

No foreign countries would be able to solve Zimbabwe's problems, he told reporters on the fringes of a meeting of the International Labour Organisation (ILO).

"The solution of the problems of Zimbabwe really lies in the hands of the Zimbabwe leadership," he said.

If by 'solution', Mbeki means 'killing everyone who is opposed to Zanu PF' then yes, the 'solution' (guns and famine) are in the hands of Zimbabwe's leadership (Mugabe).

Mbeki did not mention MDC leader Morgan Tsangvirai, who appeared in court in Harare on Wednesday on treason charges resulting from anti-government protests last week, and said he had no idea what impact the protests would have.

"I don't think that making particular statements in public is going to find a solution to this problem," Mbeki commented.

Way to be a hypocritical weak spineless worm in the face of a murderer. Wonder if he would have given the same advice to international opponents of Apartheid?
