Right Wing British War Mongerers for Democratic Change?

So, who provides the money to that wonderfully independent and fantastically democratic political party MDC (Millions of Dead curly-haired-people) and it’s inspirational leader Mr Morgan (Can you kill Mugabe for me?) Tsvangirai?

Well, some of the people involved in the Rape of Yugoslavia, that’s who.

RightWing British cash behind bid to combat Mugabe


Top Tories backing pro-democracy trust are accused of promoting their own interests,

The Zimbabwe Democracy Trust, whose patrons include former Tory Foreign Secretaries Malcolm Rifkind, Douglas Hurd and Geoffrey Howe has been accused of using the organisation as a cover for promoting the interests of Western multi-nationals in the troubled region.


Douglas Hurd and Yugoslavia

Can this be the same Douglas Hurd who, as Conservative foreign secretary, was largely responsible for the European Union’s disastrous policy on Yugoslavia, including an arms embargo which prevented the Bosnians from defending themselves against Serbian genocide and ethnic cleansing?

The same Douglas Hurd who warned against armed intervention to halt the dictator Slobodan Milosevic, first in Bosnia and then in Kosovo? The same Douglas Hurd who was told at the time by his former boss Margaret Thatcher: “Douglas, Douglas, you would make Neville Chamberlain look like a warmonger”?

The same Douglas Hurd who, within a year of retirement, returned to Belgrade in 1996 on behalf of the bank that now employed him, NatWest Markets, to negotiate with Milosevic about the privatization of Serbian utilities?

Not only was Mr. (now Lord) Hurd eager to profit from the Serbian Dictator’s desire to sell state assets in order to generate cash to preserve his brutal tyranny—he even tried to justify it by claiming that his motive was the altruistic one of “liberalizing” Serbia, and that Milosevic “could have been rehabilitated.”


So, Morgan’s one of the good-guys,. . . right??

So your beef is with Dougie because he was opposed to intervention in once place and for that reason no one should intervene somewhere else?

Actually no. That article was merely the first I ripped off Google that mentioned some of the data points I consider relevant.

IMHO, Irrespective of the conclusions of the authors of that article, Mr Hurd Esquire helped impose a weapons embargo on the Bosnians in order to facilitate war, not prevent it. Seen in that light, Madame Thatcher's little quip was very funny indeed.

But communicating all the reasoning behind that, in the few minutes I had access to an internet connection was not possible.

Hey, did you know that Clintons Commerce Secretary, Ron Brown, died on his way to meet Franco Tudjman?

That gave me a bit of a surprise.

Whoops, almost forgot . . .

The last time Dougie got involved in freeify-ing a sovereign nation a lot of people ended up dead and people Dougie subsequently worked for made a lot of money out of the whole affair.

If your beef with Mugabe is 'The well being of the Zimbabwean people' then I fear that Mr Morgan and his MDC Posse, given thier connections, offer little hope
