Mbeki To Tsvangirai: Be a Zimbabwe Patriot
Lawrence K. Freeman
December 4, 2008
Former President of the Republic of South Africa, Thabo Mbeki, is leading an effort on behalf of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), against the British Empire, and its major asset in Africa, Nazi collaborator George Soros, to prevent Zimbabwe from further devolving into chaos, and take over by British lackey Morgan Tsvangirai, leader of the Movement for a Democratic Change (MDC-T).
This was made clear in a refreshingly undiplomatic, scathing attack against Tsvangirai and MDC-T secretary-general Tendai Biti for their relentless attempts at sabotaging the formation of a new “Inclusive Government” for Zimbabwe, that was endorsed at the Nov. 9-10, Extra-Ordinary Summit of SADC Heads of State held in Sandton, South Africa. Mbeki’s letter of Nov. 22 (see excerpts below) exposes Tsvangirai’s desire to appease his “external supporters in Great Britain and North America” over what should be his primary interest: to relieve the suffering Zimbabwean people, whom he claims to represent.
Mbeki’s letter struck panic in the MDC leadership, provoking them to renew their attacks against him, even appealing to have him removed as the Special Facilitator appointed y SADC to resolve Zimbabwe’s political crisis. They did this, knowing full well that the SADC Summit expressed appreciation to Mbeki for his efforts, and endorsed all the provisions of the “Global Political Agreement” (GPA), signed on Sept. 15 in Harare, which is the core document providing for power-sharing arrangements between the ruling Zanu-PF, and two opposition parties, the MDC-T, and MDC-M.
British Destabilization of Zimbabwe: One Part of Global Chaos ‘Great Game’

The British have forgiven Zimbabwe for its liberation war and independence just as little as they have forgiven the U.S.A.for the American Revolution. The stakes at the end of the 18th Century were the loss of their most prized possession, the jewel in the crown of the British Empire, which then became the greatest threat to British colonial rule everywhere: The United States of America under Abraham Lincoln, and then Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Today, however, the “Great Game” of British world domination through globalization is breaking down, with the collapse of the global financial system. For the “Empah,” this means falling back on traditional methods of spreading chaos to precipitate the destruction of sovereign nation-states. Zimbabwe, under the courageous leadership of the freedom-fighter, Robert Mugabe, became a bête noir for the British—to be ruthlessly forced to its knees economically, as a warning to all African nations that aspire to true independence from the crippling conditionalities of the genocidal International Monetary Fund system
Southern Africans Rally Against British Assault on Zimbabwe

There is no better timely example of the British colonial imperialist policy towards Africa then the current self-defeating temper tantrum by Britain’s new leader. The ghost of the infamous conqueror of Southern Africa, Cecil Rhodes, is alive but not well in the body of Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Fortunately, South African President Thabo Mbeki, with overwhelming support from the leaders of the Southern African Development Community, has brought about a compromise between the ZANU-PF ruling party, and its opposition, the British-backed leadership of the Movement for the Democratic Change (MDC). This has thwarted, for the moment, British attempts to instigate a regime change of Zimbabwe’s elected President, Robert Mugabe, before the March 2008 multiple national elections
Zimbabwe Ambassador Mapuranga: Africa Shows How Globalization Equals Imperialism
March 3, 2007
Now, concerning Zimbabwe: It used to be called Rhodesia, because it was colonized by Cecil John Rhodes, a man ho used to be the Prime Minister in the Cape province of South Africa. And he’s the one who organized an army to invade Zimbabwe, and conquer it, so that it became part of Her Majesty Queen Victoria’s Empire.
Zimbabwe, or Rhodesia, then, was in a unique position, largely because of the known mineral resources, as well as very temperate climate. If you go through the public record office at Kew Gardens in London, where the Colonial Office papers are kept, you see that Rhodesia and South Africa are referred to as “white man’s country.” The term referred to the white highlands of Kenya, Rhodesia, and South Africa, as well as Australia and New Zealand.
That colonial policy of “white man’s country,” actually rested on two pillars. The first one being what you might call demographic change, meaning that the white authorities had as their major agenda, to redress the population ratio between the indigenous folks, and the incoming white settlers. In the case of Zimbabwe, for example, in 1894, the British South Africa Company, which was administering that territory, reported that for every one white man, there were 19,000 natives. But by the time that we had the peak of white settlement, during the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, which was what is now Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Malawi, that ratio had been altered to 1:13. From 1:19,000, to 1:13!
And in the case of South Africa, when the Dutch East India Company first arrived, they were reporting that the ratio between them and the natives was something like 1 white man, so you may start a new trend in our coverage to 27,000 natives. But, as we speak now, the ratio is 1:10.
In all these countries that were labelled “white man’s country,” that was part of the policy: to reduce the population ratio between the whites and the natives.
Anglo-Americans Had Hoped To Push Zimbabwe into Civil War
July 27 , 2001
The Anglo-Americans have decided to escalate their attacks on Zimbabwe. Despite successfully mobilizing almost all the international institutions, especially the countries of the European Union, to isolate the government of President Robert Mugabe, they have been unable to force any African leader to denounce Mugabe and to work for the overthrow of his government. EIR has evidence that the attack on Mugabe is being extended to other political layers who, despite their criticism of some of the Mugabe government’s policies, refuse to join the Western-sponsored opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). The aim of such a broadened a attack is to polarize the country to the point of plunging it into a civil war.
