‘It’s Well Past Time’ for Mugabe to Leave, Rice Says
i'd like to tell ms rice it's well past fucking time her boss left....and her too.....

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Friday that it is ''well past time'' for Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe to leave office as evidenced by the nation's calamitous cholera epidemic and health care crisis.

Rice said the country experienced ''a sham election,'' followed by a sham sharing of power. Speaking in the Danish capital Friday, she said the current outbreak of cholera in the country should be a sign to the international community that it is time to stand up to Mugabe.

''If this is not evidence to the international community to stand up for what is right, I don't know what would be. And frankly the nations of the region have to do it,'' she said. The nations in southern Africa have the most to lose and need to take the lead, she said.

4. Tutu: Mugabe should be toppled and indicted in The Hague
"Today I think the world must say (to Mugabe): 'Look, you have been responsible for gross violations and you are going to face indictment in The Hague - unless you step down."

"He has destroyed a wonderful country. Zimbabwe has become an empty basket. The country needs help," Tutu added, saying that African countries should play an important role in the process of forcing Mugabe out of power.

"The world should bring him to The Hague and this should also include African countries as well as the European Union. If necessary, it should happen by force, by the African Union, (the South African Development Community) SADC, and the European Union. They have got that capacity."

Given that Tutu is a peaceful man, this is pretty strong.
