Good article- I feel that coverage of this issue doesn't always give a good
historical perspective. It took a long war and intense political pressure
before Ian Smith finally agreed to let go. If Smith's hardheaded regime had
put more resources into labor and economic reform/transition, instead of
signing the UDI and giving Britain and black Zimbabweans the middle finger,
maybe now there would be no white resentment that Mugabe could play upon for
the sole purpose of staying in power. If I unbottled a genie and had 3
wishes, one wish would be to force both Smith and Mugabe to share an 8 x 10
jail cell at the Hague.
