Robert Mugabe: A Servant Not Knowing His Place

Posted: March 17, 2007
How do we know that the U.S. and Europe are behind the efforts to overthrow President Robert Mugabe?
According to William Blum: "Same way we know that the sun will rise tomorrow morning. That's what it's always done and there's no reason to think that tomorrow morning will be any different."
What is going on in Zimbabwe that has brought the western media out in full force? The stories being bandied about and manipulated by the media seem to be focusing on some claims of abuse to Morgan Tsvangirai. According to articles in the media, the opposition party MDC led by Morgan Tsvangirai has been operating to take down the current government of Zimbabwe for some time. As far back as 2000, Tsvangirai was threatening violence against Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe. These are calculated activities taking place in Zimbabwe on an ongoing basis.
It is reported in the media that Tsvangirai's MDC faction had already made a pledge to organize mass civil disobedience for some time. Other opposition groups, who have ties to the Christian Alliance that spearheads the Save Zimbabwe Campaign with the same agenda - to stop the land seizures being implemented and to remove President Robert Mugabe's government - have been staging protests relentlessly (Save Zimbabwe Campaign's Effectiveness and Viability In Question 30 November 2006).
Why all the attention on this particular protest? It can be argued that the excessive media attention is focusing on the opposition leader being injured in what appears to be a violent confrontation with the police. But this is not what we are getting via the media reports that have already declared human rights abuses at the hands of the government. Protests staged in any country often invite violence to later claim suppression and brutalization. Rarely do these worldwide protests receive the amount of media attention glaring on this recent protest in Zimbabwe except when there is a U.S./European backed attempt at 'regime change' in a country.
The bottom line on this sudden intensification of interest in the internal affairs of Zimbabwe by western governments and media is in opposition to the White settlers losing the stolen land they once occupied. They intend to punish Mugabe for daring to redress this grave injustice. The United States, Britain, White settlers and organizations formed for the purpose of giving the impression of widespread organized opposition to Robert Mugabe are willing to do whatever it takes to maintain White settler (European) domination in Zimbabwe.
The media frenzy involving Zimbabwe goes back to the land seizures from White settlers.
The United States and Britain try to cover all their bases as they try to destabilize more targets sighted in their longstanding agenda of world dominance. They do manage to find some unusual bedfellows as accomplices. These deceptions are too common these days to be believable. It would be nice if those making the loudest condemnations against the Zimbabwe government could see these events for what they are. I rather suspect many are simply being paid to make noise. Most of the reports in the western media are saying the same things with the same tone which demonstrates a U.S./European concentrated effort to force the Zimbabwe government from office.
