Mugabe's colonial ghosts


As his heroes learned, being a revolutionary hero lets you do anything and still be praised...

Clearly, the Food and Agriculture Organization can allow anyone it wants to attend its World Food Day ceremony in Rome. The United Nations and its agencies must remain ecumenical and open. And the occasional appearance by Mugabe does help remind the world that the 81-year-old tyrant is still around, still blaming colonialists, neocolonialists, racists and everybody else for his country's suffering, still fixing elections and hounding his opponents.

Ummm...Not true...did the UN let Milosevic attend the conference on racism?
