Mugabe speech at the United Nations a disgrace.
The United Nations has done it again. The UN Food Agency allowed Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's brutal dictator to speak and rail against George W. Bush and Tony Blair by comparing them to Hitler and Mussolini. While the Bush/Blair foreign policy has been a total embarrassment, allowing President Mugabe the opportunity to hypocritcally attack the west was appalling. Even more ironic was the setting. Mugabe has starved his own people for the past several years thanks to a land seizure policy that placed his nation into an extreme famine. Since the program began, Zimbabwe's agricultural production has virtually halted, and Mugabe has been unwilling to accept Western help or advice to address the situation.
