One vote one bullet

Mugabe has declared war with his own people by giving them a choice of 1 vote 1 bullet. Ngiyesabanews talking on phone with their correspondent, the opposition leader who had resolved that Zimbabwean people would be their own liberators and fight on, has been forced to pull out of the election and avoid a violent confrontation between his unarmed but determined supporters and Mugabe's thugs who are also funded from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe and armed from state armouries. Morgan Tsvangirai sought refuge in the Dutch Embassy in the capital, Harare, following his withdrawal from this week's runoff presidential election. “It was a temporary refuge and we have had assurances from the Zimbabwe government regarding safety” He pulled out of the poll after 86 people died and 200,000 fled their homes because of what he called the state's ``violent retributive agenda.'' Tsvangirai said today he plans to leave the embassy in the next 48 hours. We don’t know where he will be heading.
The move sparked a call from Gordon Brown for the international community to refuse to recognise the result, despite Mr Mugabe's Zanu-PF party insisting it would push ahead with the poll on Friday. In a Commons statement, the Prime Minister said Britain would now be pressing for fresh sanctions against Mr Mugabe's inner circle - including travel bans and the freezing of financial assets held abroad.
The MDC won the parliamentary vote in March, and is widely believed to have won the first round of the presidential contest outright. Effective control of Zimbabwe is now in the hands of the heads of the army, air force, police and secret police, who form the Joint Operations Command. Meanwhile Tedai Biti the man facing the death penalty if he is found guilty of subversion and vote-rigging charges is stil in custody.

New Kid @ School

It was the first day of a school in USA and a new Sri Lankan Indian student named Chandrasekhar Subramanian entered the fourth grade. The teacher said, "Let's begin by reviewing some American History.Who said "Give me Liberty , or give me Death"?She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Chandrasekhar, who had his hand up: "Patrick Henry, 1775" he said. "Very good!"Who said " A Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth?" Again, no response except from Chandrasekhar. "Abraham Lincoln, 1863" said Chandrasekhar. The teacher snapped at the class, "Class, you should be ashamed. Chandrasekhar, who is new to our country, knows more about its history than you do."She heard a loud whisper: "**** the Indians," "Who said that?" she demanded. Chandrasekhar put his hand up."General Custer, 1862." At that point, a student in the back said, "I'm gonna puke." The teacher glares around and asks "All right! Now, who said that?" Again, Chandrasekhar says, "George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991." Now furious, another student yells, "Oh yeah? Suck this!" Chandrasekhar jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher , "Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!" Now with almost mob hysteria someone said "You little sh#t. If you say anything else, I'll kill you." Chandrasekhar frantically yells at the top of his voice, " Michael Jackson to the child witnesses testifying against him- 2004." The teacher fainted. And as the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, "Oh sh#t, we're f#cked!" And Chandrasekhar said quietly, Robert Mugabe to his cabinet at the declaration of the presidential election results-April 2008.
