2 Is Robert Mugabe leaving? - Peace and prosperity coming to Zimbabwe
Looking at the issues, it's like the worse case scenario for Malaysia. The mode of campaigning is the same and the opposition main concerned is for a free and fair election. We Malaysians are counting on the politicians to clean our electoral roll and appoint a good, reliable and neutral Election Commission before the next election. Non involvement of security forces and other state apparatus in the process. What is worrying, both locally and internationally, is the delay in the announcements in the Senate and Assembly results. Why the result for the Presidency is still pending.
With Mugabe's party losing the Parliament to MDC Morgan Tsvangirai, many viewed that something is cooking and Mugabe may leave his country and a talk was brokered by the South African President, Thabo Mbeki. One of the conditions is immunity from persecution for Mugabe. The Presidential poll results have yet to be announced. However situations takes a new twist when there was an announcement that Robert Mugabe is set to for a second round of voting and beginning to unleashed his vile methods once again. We earnestly hope the Zimbabweans will not be intimidated and just put Robert Mugade out of the system, put him in your history books, vote for the MDC Candidate, Morgan Tsvangirai. ZANU-FP had decided to support Mugabe for the second round election, their war veteran who fought against white rule had began marching into the cities probably as a show of force to create intimidation and awe. As history tells us, Mugabe "green boys" will be included and heavily coupled with all other dirty tricks in order to secure a win.

On many occasions words are spun on the internet that America is planning for a war with Iran, doing it for Israel's security and existence. The latest spun is that it is going to be in this month or a very near future , at the tail end of the Bush-Cheney administration.
