Chinese Complicity In Zimbabwe

I was disgusted to see Chinese and North Korean “advisors,” sitting in the stadium supporting the Mugabe regime at the 28th anniversary of Zimbabwe’s independence from Britain. In his speech attacking Britain and Brown, Robert Mugabe made one of the most hypocritically ludicrous speeches ever heard. It would have been hilarious were it not so tragic.

China and North Korea continue to arm Mugabe’s bestial regime, knowing full well that the military hardware will be used to oppress his own citizens. The Chinese and North Korea governments have revealed the true depth of their disdain for human rights and democracy. They have demonstrated to the World a total absence of any sense of morality or integrity.

They have shown there is no gutter too disgusting into which they will not stoop, to gain economic and political influence or advantage, irrespective of the misery and cost in human lives. They have shown their true colours and they have proven beyond doubt that they are untrustworthy of support at any level. They are complicit in the crimes committed by Robort Mugabe against his own people and they should be condemned by all humanitarian governments and organisations for so doing.

They must not be allowed to get away with it and I now totally support a boycott of the Beijing Olympics and Chinese products until such time as they change their ways.
