Zimbabwe!! Why isn't anything being done?? :-(

Just been watching the news and have now seen that Zimbabwe's population is now dying from Cholera!

Why isn't anything being done to help these unfortunate people?

How can this be allowed to happen ? We've got news reporters out there seeing all these atrocities actually happening, so it's not as if it's false claims and yet nothing is being done!

All these poor people are being murdered, beaten, starved to death and no other country is stepping in to prevent it (I've got tears in my eyes as i type this!)

It reminds me of Hitler and the Holocost, i'm sure people will look back in years to come and wonder how this was allowed to happen and we are now seeing this happen ourselves before our very eyes.

I can't get my head round this, am i the only one who can see this should not be happening and if not why isn't any other country/nation doing anything to stop it??? :-(

no oil, no gold, nothing to gain for a government when it is going to cost tonnes to do something about it, if they aren't getting anything back like they are with iraq then not worth it

I't's probably something to do with the recession, at the end of the day if someone helps it's going to cost them money

Their people must be so scared, i understand why someone hasnt just bumped off Mugabe :thinking:

This will be even further down the news now with what's happening in Mumbai.

No matter how bad money wise things are i still can't understand why we arent doing anything? It goes against all our human rights but yet its being allowed to happen!

The situation in Zimbabwe is terrible but the state that could do most to start change is South Africa and they're just don't seem to be that bothered. If we got involved we'd be justifting Magabe's claim that we're an ex-colonial power trying to impose it's power against a former colony.

Our Armed Forces can barely afford to meet their current operational requirements let alone take on another (in the sense of both financially and man power).

The only people who could really help are America but they have nothing to gain from it so unfortunately wont go.

It would be better to be called that than let him murder inocent women and children etc As i said previously i'm sure in years to come we'll all look back in regret at what we are all watching now :-(

It is terrible - but why does it have to be up to us to resolve things? The whole world should take action, especially South Africa - if they stopped their support Mugabe would fold within a few months. We as a country organized the world to take sanctions and from here it should be up to the United Nations or the African Union sends in the African peacekeeping army.
We as a country are NOT able to solve the whole world's problems.
#18
there is a sneaking approval from the African powers for the way Magabe stod up to white farmers etc.
So Africa turns a blind eye.

Something should have been done then. We did nothing then and we are doing nothing now.
#19
Hm, should we give them help when it's their own fault?
They chucked the white farmers out and now they starve......

Ok, so it's not the peoples fault but still.

True about Africa turning a blind eye.However, we did not do nothing - we organized the sanctions. But if you want us to do more sorry this is an international problem - why should we have to sort it out. It's the whole world's responsibilty.
#21
I not suggesting we do anything, just pointing out that this has not happened over night.
Africa has the power to stop this, but it has not.
We can not solve the worlds problems but if you are aware how these terrible things occur and who is to blame it helps you understand why apparently nothing is being done
#22
i understand its whole worlds problem....but then why do the brits go marching into iraq to overthrow their dicatator etc but in this situation they sit tight.....>>???

Partly conned by the yanks into thinking that there was the threat of weapons of mass destruction. However, Sadam needed to kicked out - he was worse than Mugabe killed hundreds of thousands - you can't say yes let's get involved with Zimbabwe and no we shouldn't have got involved in Iraq as Sadam and Mugabe are both tyrants and killers of their own people! We couldn't have done anything on our own in Iraq - it goes to show that it must be an international effort.
#24
the brits?
#25
Why do we feel like its our duty to go and 'MAKE PEACE'
we shud just keep to ourselves. I dont see them making any sort of threat to any of our allies so they can do what they want in their own country. as long as it doesnt effect me i dont care :)
being brutally honest.
#26
We've spend decades trying to help Africa yet look how many problems Africa has now? Has all our money and support accomplished anything? Let the AU handle it, they've been demanding we stay out of African affairs for a long time...

come on the brits knew that there was no weapons of mass destruction...they'd have had to provide them first :w00t:....it was all a publicity stunt so that we , the public, justified the advance on iraq.

sorry i dont get what ur saying, ur ok with going into iraq but not into zimbabwe. whats the difference?
#28
no one new if there were WMD(in this country anyway)
lots of people now claim to have known there were no WMD because it suits their own agenda's
#29
Africa has been the whole world's problem since year dot. Remember Live Aid? The billions that are pumped in there in aid every year? Nothing ever changes. The only way to change stuff is to send in a crack shot to take out the tyrants one at a time. You can't cure a virus with paracetamol, it just keeps coming back. You need something a little more substantial. Mugabe is one of many viruses throughout the continant.
#30
We've done quite a lot. The UK has been a real thorn in Mugabe's side politically, which is why he hates the British so damned much. The EU has done quite a lot too. We seized all of Mugabe and his peoples foreign bank accounts.

At this point the only thing more we could do would be to launch an invasion to affect regime change. Which we can't do because a) we can't afford it and b) no really, we cannot afford it, and c) the rest of Africa would probably unite in opposition to us going in.

It's an African problem, and it should be up to Africa to sort it.
#31
because there is no oil or anything of value that the uk or us need.

These are points I think are well made. The truly devastated country is an example of how a megalomaniac can bring an entire nation to its knees. Mugabe started off as a man of the people and is still supported by many members of his own tribe, who may well be fearful of consequences if they do not support him. The diaspora support the country by working abroad and sending money home. Sanctions on the country are pointless as the ordinary people would suffer even more - personal sanctions against the government have brought them to some sort of negotiations at least. The descent from a thriving and prosperous country into chaos and disease is a blot on the face of humanity. S Africa bears a huge burden for propping up the Mugabe regime and going through the motions of the present 'power-sharing'. The Mugabe strategy of blaming the white colonialism is at last failing to win support in Africa, so perhaps soon relief will be at hand.

Well said.

Problem is, the situation in SA is getting worse. It wouldnt surprise me if they weren't the next Zimbabwe.

Ethiopia in particular was a beacon of knowledge and a source much educatin for centuries, the 'develooed' world stole alot of african theory and wisdom. Africa is a special comtinent but it has been cursed severely, it will by the grace of God rrevive itself.
