But we can't do anything much right now about the IMF/WB/USA, while
with a concerted effort Mugabe could conceivably be ousted NOW and
someone even a little better could conceivably replace him. That would
save *some* Zimbabwean lives and alleviate *some* suffering.

Artesian's incredible suggestion that the UN shouldn't be permitted to
do anything in Zim just because the UN doesn't do anything about US or
Israeli crimes, seems to me to be a classic case of cutting off the
nose to spite the face. It also bespeaks a horrible disdain about the
value of Zimbabwean lives, and about the benefit of saving at least a
few of these needless deaths. No wonder third-word common people often
don't trust Western leftists.
