Home » General » It’s Regime Change Agenda That Needs Changing

For most of us that have been hurt and disgusted by the regime change agenda pursued by the West since at least 1997, revelations that the US has lost a lot of money to corruption by its fifth columnists here, make for good humour. Obviously, the US is not alone, as indeed will be revealed in the fullness of time. Think of the likes of Britain, Sweden, Denmark, among other hostile countries, perhaps including neighbours, Botswana.

The money that was gobbled by enterprising locals could run into billions of dollars in the last 15 or so years.

You cannot help but laugh at the regime change pursuers.

At the moment one can imagine that there is a lot of soul searching within their circles. Of course, the guys who gobbled the money may worry a little at the prospect of losing cash cows.

But they certainly enjoyed it while it lasted. It is like manna from heaven — and the quails, too.

Soon enough it will be corrupted you cannot store it for future use.

One may indulge the Bible on it.

It is an interesting tale.

Here it goes:

“That evening quail came and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. When the dew was gone, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor.

“When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, ‘What is it?’ For they did not know what it was.

“It is the bread the Lord has given you to eat. This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Everyone is to gather as much as they need. Take an omer[a] for each person you have in your tent. The Israelites did as they were told some gathered much, some little. And when they measured it by the omer, the one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little. Everyone had gathered just as much as they needed. Then Moses said to them, ‘No one is to keep any of it until morning.’

“However, some of them paid no attention to Moses they kept part of it until morning, but it was full of maggots and began to smell. So Moses was angry with them. Each morning everyone gathered as much as they needed, and when the sun grew hot, it melted away… ”

Later on we are told that on the Sabbath Day, these un-listening Israelites went out to gather manna.

They found none.

Yet the story is clear on how the miraculous food saved the people.

Lucky were the fifth columnists during our long night of sanctions.

Of course, they rode on the misery of the majority, but for a moment let us not begrudge them.

It was their lucky day.

We had people buying houses and cars and drank and made merry.

One man, called Morgan Tsvangirai, was given thousands of dollars to marry and get rid of Lorcadia Karimatsenga whom he married and divorced within 12 days. It is rather curious that the West took long to notice this.

Christopher Dell realised the futility of the project rather early when he remarked that with the amount of resources and efforts, regime change could have been achieved.

Here was his moaning observation: “Zimbabwe’s opposition is far from ideal and I leave convinced that had we had different partners we could have achieved more already. But you have to play the hand you’re dealt. With that in mind, the current leadership has little executive experience and will require massive hand holding and assistance should they ever come to power.”

He bemoaned that they had to deal with the hand that God dealt them.

But that is their problem.

In fact, it has become clear that the regime change agenda has not worked.

The drivers of the doomed agenda simply need to abandon ship, not only because it has failed but also because it is mutually destructive.

Perhaps we have suffered a little more than our tormentors. But make no mistake: the West has suffered too, just as those charged with administering torture become dehumanised themselves.

Of course, there are economic factors, too.

Which could be the reason why the European Union are making moves and delegations are coming from Britain and soon Belgium to explore opportunities.

The EU in fact needs some applauding.

The EU is playing good guys, whatever their motives are.

The intentions so far sound well.

It is to be trusted that the EU saw the error of their ways.

For those that have followed the uneasy relations between Zimbabwe and the EU, they will recall that the bloc imposed sanctions against Zimbabwe in violation of its own rules.

But it has not been too late to make amends and the EU must make concrete steps to fully normalise relations with Zimbabwe which is predicated on the complete and unconditional lifting of the remaining sanctions, including on President Mugabe.

As long as the sanctions on the head of state remain, everything pales into insignificance. After all, he is the same chief executive and top diplomat of this country who must of necessity be involved in high level interactions.

It is wrong diplomatic spirit, disrespectful and demeaning even, that we are told the President has to go to Europe on the basis of privilege.

Come to think of it.

That the President is made to be granted such privilege, which means that he goes to enjoy himself not to do business. That is very disrespectful and unwarranted. We will be following these things keenly.

Meanwhile, the US is free to make a choice. They can either continue with their futile regime change agenda using useless, corrupt people, or they can do the honourable thing and relate to the people’s government in an open and transparent manner.

That is what grown ups do.

And a big ego will not help matters.

Besides the resilient people will continue resisting the outsiders undue influence and the US will continue losing its monies to crooks.
