Coup d'Etat in Zimbabwe? -- November 16, 2017
When I was a kid, Rhodesia was a white supremacist regime that was not recognized by anyone.  People like Robert Mugabe fought to overthrow the white supremacist government and establish majority rule and the end of colonialism.  The white supremacists finally gave up, and Robert Mugabe became the first president.  Over the 40 years of his rule, he developed autocratic tendencies.  The economy is in ruins.  Lately his wife has been pushing out veterans of the war for independence in her quest to be the next president.  The army didn't like and has put the president under house arrest and has detained many of the corrupt people who surrounded him.  I wish Mugabe could have retired years ago with honors.
