''mugabe'' In Rome....

While the people in Zimbabwe are being beaten and killed ''mugabe'' and his wife are having a nice little holiday in Rome at the expense of the UN..

Grace of course had to go along to go and do some much needed shopping and a few pics were taken of her and an unidentified woman coming out of some shoe shop......

Found this on the net and what a brilliant idea this would be....

Hey all you out there in Europe got any connections with some high up cops or even a couple of Mafia Boss's well then ''whisper'' in their ear about arresting ''mugabe'' and sending him to the Netherlands......NOW IS THE TIME.......

Arrest him.

There are two excellent reasons why Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's ex-president, should not be at the UN world food conference in Rome, and one excellent reason why he should be arrested while there for arraignment before the international criminal court. The fact that he is nevertheless there, and the fact that he has not so far been arrested on criminal charges, speaks the worst shame to that pusillanimous and feeble creature, "the international community".

The two reasons why he should not be in Rome are these. First, he has several times over been voted out of office by the people he has bullied, starved and impoverished, but continues to rule through the gun and truncheon as, in effect, a coup leader. He has no legitimate standing to attend the Rome conference therefore; the fig leaf of waiting for a rerun of a presidential election he has already lost, in the hope that his thugs can arrange another "win" next time, cannot possibly persuade anyone else at the Rome conference that he has a right to be there.

Secondly, as someone who has turned a flourishing net exporter of foodstuffs into a starvation zone, he is one of the last people on earth who should be allowed into a five-star Roman hotel with his wife and an entourage. What an irony it is that someone who is so unimpeachably and starkly an example of a food-crisis engendering problem should dare to show his face at a conference seeking solutions.

And yet his presence there offers one possibility of a small contribution to one part of a solution: arrest him, arraign him for human rights crimes, lock him up in the Netherlands while trial pends, and while he defends his glowing record of humane administration of justice, internal peace, and economic progress, poor struggling Zimbabwe might be able to find its feet again.

At least our own government has complained about his presence in Rome, and has been blunt in doing so. But words are not enough. Here is the wretched dictator within reach of international law: nab him and put him on trial; it would be the cleanest, quickest, simplest way to give Zimbabwe real help.
