The end of Robert Mugabe?
We can only hope.
But they ‘New Boss’ will be the same as the Old Boss.............
Trading one set of cannibal kleptocrats for another...
“Africa wins again”.
It’s pretty amazing to see photos of Harare before it the switch over to Zimbabwe from Rhodesia.
it was easily mistaken as a capital city in England or somewhere in Europe; the very picture of modernity.
now it’s a complete garbage case.
They went and did exactly the same thing to Rhodesia that they had done to Haiti and are now doing to the NFL) once wealthy and, believe it or not, the Envy in the New World of Europe.
Allies of Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe have warned the military chief against meddling in politics. on BBC
Filthy Word: Coup!
Not unknown to us here.
Semper POTUS.45...IF We Can Keep Him?/!!!!!
Looks like the military is doing what they should have done years ago. Id guess another strong man will take power.
Four tanks: Are we certain that they are not just on the way to a maintenance facility?
Looking at the pics these appear to be APCs and not tanks. I forget libs who don’t know the difference between an auto or semi auto wouldn’t know the difference between a tank or an APC.
“Looking at the pics these appear to be APCs and not tanks.”
CNN will shortly report them to be fully automatic belt fed Glock revolvers.
I guess I’ll be one of the people on FR that doesnt find Rhodesia as anything to remotely praise just because it looks like a western nation.
It was a pathetic fun park for one demographic with a micro % of the population, that seriously thought they could rule over millions with no political representation at all, and they were supposed to be cool with that. Please.
This part of the world has been trading one group of deluded idiots for another for 50 years. God knows if this is going to be anything but trade #3.
If video on Twitter is legit, looks more like troop transport than tanks, but something is going on...
And probably have those chainsaw attachments!
Back then, people there at least had jobs and food on the table.
I’m not sure that the farmers and others who worked hard to make a bit of civilization and productivity happen - thought they were prancing about a “fun park”.
...except when compared to Zimbabwe.
