What do you think about Mugabe and his rule in Zimbabwe?

I'd say vaguely good as he was certainly better than his colonial predecessors but he made some pretty huge missteps.

Look at the state of Zimbabwe. This man is nothing but a tin pot business dictator.

Dagoth, this is the second time I find myself disagreeing with you. Maybe my history is a bit sketchy here, but as I recall the 'colonial predecessors' you mention did not intimidate and, if that failed, murder innocent farmers simply because they weren't 'black'. Mugabe is, and always was, a despot, and the fact that he may have thought of himself as being a 'Marxist' at one stage only makes his behaviour all the more difficult to understand.

Unfortunately for'im, his economic incompetence overshadows the rest of his career.
