Zimbabwe - Platinum, Farm Land, Blair, Bush, the Military, Mossad

Mugabe is a bad dictator?

Or Mugabe is being destabilised by the West so that the West can control Zimbabwe's platinum and farm land?

Possibly both statements are true.

1. 1990 Zimbabwe:

"By 1990, life expectancy had risen to 64 years, and infant mortality, school enrolment and adult literacy were all better than the average for the developing countries." - BBC News Zimbabwe Political conspiracy or economic mismanagement?

2. 2008:

"Despite the large number of Zimbabweans, legally/illegally in South Africa at present, presumably as a result of being dissatisfied with Mugabe, it appears that they are not finally decided about Bob and the mob.

"During a recent phone-in program on SABC, callers were asked whom they would vote for, and the majority of them (identified as Zimbabweans) still chose Mugabe." - Your views on Zimbabwe election

3. "The trigger for Zimbabwe’s economic and financial besiegement is the decision taken by Britain’s Labour government under former prime minister Tony Blair in 1997, not to support 'the package of assistance for resettlement in the period immediately following independence'...

"It is clearly feared that if Zimbabwe’s 'land grab' is emulated elsewhere in Africa, or Third World countries, or Commonwealth member states, it would threaten to shake the foundations of capitalism as understood by the Western world.

"This is rooted in bankable title deeds and the sanctity of individual property rights. However, Zimbabwe dispensed with both to achieve its 'fast track land reform programme'...

"In whose interest would Zimbabwe be destabilised?

"... US President George Bush signed into law the 'Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act' on December 21 2001...

"Today, Zimbabwe is under an economic and financial siege and, therefore, seriously cash strapped...

"Ask yourself the question, how is it possible that Zimbabwe’s economy cannot profit from the soaring platinum, gold, uranium and coal prices, when the country is richly blessed with such strategic natural resources and many more?

"... One needs to look at the de-classified CIA documents again, how conspiring foreign international forces had undermined Ghana’s economy in 1962-1965 in order to topple President Kwame Nkrumah... - The Herald

4. 25 July 2005:

"The Chinese are widely reported to covet a stake in Zimbabwe's platinum mines, which have the world's second-largest reserves...

"China won a contract last year to farm 1,000 square kilometers, or 386 square miles, of land seized from white commercial farmers during the land-confiscation program begun by Mugabe in 2000."

Mugabe's "new 25-bedroom palace is covered with midnight-blue Chinese roof tiles. His air force trains on Chinese jets. His subjects wear Chinese shoes, ride Chinese buses and, lately, zip around the country in Chinese propjets..." - Zimbabwe's future: Made in China - International Herald Tribune

31 August 2007:

"Robert Mugabe is to lose vital support from one of his few remaining allies on the world stage, China.

"One of the Zimbabwe president's oldest diplomatic friends, China yesterday told Lord Malloch Brown, the Foreign Office minister, that it was dropping all assistance except humanitarian aid."


5. 31 March 2008:

There is the "possibility of a coup de etat by the army commanders in the wake of a surprise victory by the Oppostion MDC Tsavangirai party overthe ruling party Zanu PF and its presidential candidate, Robert Mugabe.

"Today's signs can be cross referenced to earlier statements made by the commander of Zimbabwe's army, General Constantine Chiwenga that 'Elections are coming and the army will not support or salute sell-outs and agents of the West before, during and after the presidential elections,...We will not support anyone other than President Mugabe who has sacrificed a lot for this country.'" - COUP plot fears mount, as election results delay.

6. "President Robert Mugabe made a down payment of US$1 million to an Israeli company with Mossad connections at the beginning of this month to help him rig the elections.

"The balance of U$1,5 million is due as soon as Mugabe has been sworn in for another term, The Zimbabwean on Sunday can reveal.

"Details of the deal were leaked to us on Friday from the president’s own office, substantiating reports by the MDC of Israeli involvement in the elections.

"Impeccable sources revealed that the spy agency had initially asked for US$3 million to secure Mugabe another term but ended up settling for US$2,5 million after negotiations with Mugabe’s emissaries, including Reserve Bank Governor Gideon Gono and CIO bosses..." -
