Zimbabwe blames US and UK for droughts

Found this on the Beeb:

A state-run newspaper in Zimbabwe has suggested the UK and US are to blame for droughts in southern Africa.
The Herald said climate change has been artificially induced "in a bid to arm-twist the region to capitulate to the whims of the world's superpowers".

It said weather was being manipulated for political gain using unspecified "unconventional" chemical weapons.

It is widely seen as a mouthpiece for President Robert Mugabe's government, correspondents say.

It said recent droughts, which defied predictions by the Zimbabwean government and the Southern African Development Community's Drought Monitoring Centre, pointed to the possibility of the weather being manipulated for political purposes.

"The overt and covert machinations by Zimbabwe's former colonial ruler Britain, which has declared its intentions to effect illegal regime change in Harare, have given credence to the conspiracy theory," the paper said.

It said that the US Famine Early Warning System had predicted famine in Zimbabwe six months before it occurred.

"The prediction, which was the exact opposite of other forecasts, seems to confirm that the conspiracy to remove the Zimbabwean government has gone chemical."

Zimbabwe is currently facing a food crisis and the country urgently needs to import 1.2 million tonnes of food to avoid famine.

Correspondents say the crisis is complex with erratic rains, disastrous economic policies, land reform and the spread of HIV/Aids all playing a part.
Seems to me that the state may be trying to turn the locals attention away from their corrupt business and try and blame everyone else for the countries problems.

A Zimbabwean government type on Irish television last week blamed the famine on an act of God 8O (Well, ZANU-PF have regarded Old Comrade Bob as a god for years...).
it definitley the end, when they start to lose grip on reality then you know the whole thing on a slippery slope to hell.
At least with them here, we don't have to feed them.
UK/US manipualating the wheather, clever arnt we 8O :?

If its true can whoever it is give Bergen a bit more sun this year.

I blame Bush for the thunderstorm which is currently p1ssing on my house - he used a mind-control ray from the Star Wars programme to start it!
The only sad part is that how many ignorant bartsewards over there will believe him! Not to mention the ones over here.
Well that's the weather accounted for. Now who will they blame for the idle, shiftless corrupt cnuts who run the place.

Build a 20 foot wall right round the border then fill with water.
