Bad News in South Africa

Following Zimbabwe's Lead?

I've found it ironic that many of the leaders of South Africa have been quick to condemn our President as a 'terrorist' and at the same time turn a blind eye to the brutal ways of Robert Mugabe in nearby Zimbabwe. Unfortunately, it looks as if elements in the South African government are set on following Zimbabwe's lead by forcibly seizing white owned land. This won't be good for anyone in South Africa, mark my words.

Land reform, sadly is just the tip of the iceberg as South Africa copes with the legacy of Apartheid. Nearly 1/3 of its population is infected with the HIV/AIDS virus, presenting an enormous challege to the country's stability.

We may very well be looking at the beginnings of the next great failed state.
