Iraq and Zimbabwe (letter)


by Selwyn Johnston

News Weekly, February 22, 2003
Sir,

United Nations countries America, Britain, China, France, India, Iraq, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan and Russia, either have weapons of mass destruction, whether biological, chemical or nuclear, or have the capabilities of producing them.

President Mugabe, the dictator of Zimbabwe, controls the greatest weapon of mass destruction known to man, starvation, and he is currently using it against his own population.

World aid agencies have estimated over seven million men, women and children will die a horrific death caused by the insane actions of this despot. Thousand of women and children are dying daily in the streets of Harare, the capitol of Zimbabwe.

Where are the mighty armies and protectors of these wretched and crushed people?

Where is the common sense for Australia, Britain, India and Pakistan to send cricket teams to play for the entertainment of a vicious murderer like Mugabe?

In the few days of cricket matches, some 10 to 15 thousand Zimbabweans will die in the streets surrounding the cricket pitch.

Why haven't the great nations of the world come to their rescue?

Perhaps one reason could be that there is no oil in Zimbabwe!

Selwyn Johnston,
Cairns, Qld
