Interesting article from Reuters about Zimbabwe starting to take down all the NGOs there. NGOs include all those organizations who selfishly provide aid and food to people who are starving due to Robert Mugabe’s campaign against everyone in his country.
Mugabe, sole ruler since independence in 1980, has accused NGOs and aid groups of supporting the main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) and imposed tight restrictions on food aid distribution in the country.
Say it isn’t so! Relief organizations supporting groups trying to overthrow the government? Perhaps it’s part of their plan to help the people. Mugabe’s government is certainly the root cause of all the suffering over there.
Mugabe, widely accused of running Zimbabwe's once-prosperous economy into the ground through policies such as the seizure of white-owned farms, blames the economic problems on sabotage by Western powers who are keen to topple him.
Britain, the United States and other Western nations deny that they have waged economic war against Mugabe and insist that they are merely trying to restore democracy in Zimbabwe.
Yeah, your problems are because we’re trying to topple your government. Denial and paranoia continue to work their magic on third world governments throughout the world.
But I think that Mugabe is right about our countries opposing him and trying to overthrow his government. Because if we’re trying to restore democracy, we’re certainly working against his government.
