Zimbabwe: The sh** is about to hit the fan

The showdown approacheth, as Zimbabwe's High Court has decided to cross swords with Mugabe's government by lifting the ban on opposition rallies.

Whether this has any practical effect remains to be seen, as the thugs allied with ZANU-PF have repeatedly ignored court rulings. Regardless, it is now (or at least, it should be) clear that Mugabe's actions are illegal no matter how you slice it.

Anyone really think he's giving up power voluntarily? If you answered "yes" to that question, please email me. I have all sorts of stuff I'd like to sell you.

This was the breadbasket of southern Africa, folks. Take a look at this graphic from BBC, which indicates which sections of the country face famine, and please tell me how things are better now than they were in 1979?
