Mugabe goes to the UN

Nope, no problem here, folks, just move along:

Speaking to the United Nations General Assembly, Mr Mugabe said the demolition of vast urban areas was an effort to boost law and order and development.

He insisted that the slum clearances were followed by well-planned building projects designed to rehouse the poor.

The fact that these "plans" haven't been done doesn't matter, he "plans " to help these people...and paper plans are more important than reality in the UN...

In an interview with the Associated Press news agency, Mr Mugabe denied that Zimbabwe was in the grip of a famine.

He said that the country has ample stocks of potatoes and rice, yet the population insists on eating corn, a traditional staple.

The people of Zimbabwe are "very, very happy," Mr Mugabe said, blaming corn shortages on years of "continuous drought".

Yup...the problem is the drought...of course, removing the best productive farmers has caused a bit of the famine history repeats itself...Russia and China and Cambodia have shown removing the best farmers leads to starvation...what's that saying, those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it?
