Mugabe and the horror once known as Zimbabwe

How long has he been murdering his people?
Tossing people off their land?
Sending Zim to hell?
Murdering the opposition?

And now, finally, the UN condemns the violence.

And when a BBC news reporter describes the latest Mugabe sanctioned violence during the election run-off as follows:
His opponent, Morgan Tsvangirai, has been completely outmanoeuvred.
I guess outmanoeuvred is the new euphemism for murdering supporters and families of opponents. The reporter using this, John Simpson BBC World Affairs Editor, Harare, needs to have a humanity check.

Then Simpson finishes this item with this:

The moral is clear: never underestimate Robert Mugabe's ferocious determination to stay in power, nor the ability of his political opponents to destroy their own case.

What planet is this fool on?
