Should we punch Mugabe?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How long can we stand back and let President Mugabe terrorise Zimbabwe? He has been in power for 25 years and has trained his youth in a Hitler style camp regime involving beatings, torture rape and murder. Elections are rigged and camps are set up next to polling stations to stop opposition voters. If this is not an evil regime I don't know what is. Is it just me or is the US/UK turning a blind eye to this? :oops:
     
  2. Punch him? We should bloody well string him up.

    Trouble is, it's all frightfully imperialistic in this day and age to interfere in independent nations' affairs. Oh. Hang on. Bosnia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Iraq (Sudan?)....

    Plus the South African government likes Zimbabwe - a government which basks in the reflected glory of Nelson Mandela and can do no wrong.
     
  3. See earlier threads.....most of uf us here, who commented, consider Rhodesia/Zim a more worthwile expenditure than Iraq!
     
  4. You need to ask this on Arrse? 8O
     
  5. Hey ducking and diving..............so the Liberal Democratic approach to this particular former colonial state and currently disenfranchised member of the Commonwealth would be??? :? :roll: :wink:
     
  6. Whiskey?
     
  7. A sensitive approach, with due respect for the indigenous peoples

    So a clinical airstrike when we know he's on the toilet, followed by an invasion, in concert with other Commonwealth Forces and the holding of legitimate free and fair elections soon afterwards , including the return of land stolen from Black and White farmers, and the encouragement of investment from UK companies back into the bread basket of Africa.

    NB. The views of PTP are not necessairily the views of the Party at large.

    (But they may be bloody close) :D
     
  8. Still nothing happening............c'mon your a Political Party with ........radical ideas ..............designed to shake us from our political carthasism......your young Liberal Fresh........................actually no your not! :( Your tired, jaded, and nothing more than an acceptable protest vote for disenfranchised Labour supporters. Yeah, yaeh the Conservatives............will I believe vote next time round!! If not them UKIP or an independant.
     
  9. Check your PM's :D
     
  10. Checked and read.........Nothing of any importance or substance...in fact; nothing of any worth at all.......no arguement...no policy...........just, more fudge and platitudes! Wate of time really...........whens the election....find some principles and stick to them soon....oh and make sure they are a general consencus of opinion....... :D
     
  11. We digress however...............why should we consider Sudan and NOT Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) as benefactors of our benevolent Imperial responsability? :D :D
     
  12. Zimbabwe will be subjected to "benevolent imperial" attentions around the time the last white farmer is murdered in his bed and the last black peasant non-member of the ruling elite has starved to death.

    Somebody, after all, has to look after that chromium, vanadium, nickel, platinum, and palladium.
     
  13. Does that mean we have.......US backing? :wink:
     
  14. As long as you have the Glorious Leader at the healm, then we will continue to do nothing but bleat helplessly whilst sitting around wringing our hands and the left wingers will still try to appease Mugabe for the sins of our fathers.

    Mugabe was viewed in the same light as Mandela was/is by the Labour party and now this is how he has turned out. So whilst the Glorious Leader still sits on his throne, then we will continue to watch Zimbabwe go down the pan. :evil:

    Oh, unless old Georgy decides otherwise :twisted:
