        Please explain to me why Mugabe doesn't get arrested as soon as he
        leaves Zimbabwe?
        \_ Does he leave?  Does he leave to go to countries that have the
           political power and will to arrest him?  Does he leave to got o
           countries with the political power and will to arrest them who
           haven't given their word not to arrest him?
           \_ He just arrived in Egypt for an African Union meeting.
            \_ If you have an African Union meeting and you arrest the leaders
               who go there it isn't going to be very Unionious for long.
        \_ Hey: "he was elected, he took an oath, and he is here with us, so
           he is president". What's your problem, huh?
           \_ >.< Lines like that make the baby jeebus weep blood.

        \_ Well, the Sec of State likes him enough to steal the election.
           \_ I guess the Republican leaning election board liked him too.
           \_ Someone had to win. The error measurement of an election is
              greater than the difference of votes in these cases, so it is
              basically a toss-up.

Raila Odinga calls for Robert Mugabe's suspension Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga has urged the African Union to suspend Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe until he allows free and fair elections. His appeal at an African Union summit in Egypt came as Zimbabwe's opposition said the country faced a constitutional crisis after an "illegal" poll. Mr Mugabe claimed victory as the sole candidate in the presidential re-run after the opposition leader withdrew. Meanwhile, Italy recalled its envoy to Zimbabwe in protest at the situation. The move followed a call by Italy's foreign minister last week for European Union nations to begin withdrawing their ambassadors to Harare. In a statement on Monday, the Italian foreign ministry said pulling out all EU ambassadors would signal the "firmness and disapproval that is shared by the international community" at the conduct of the run-off. African observers said the election had been undermined by pre-poll violence. Inside Mugabe's mind Speaking to reporters in Nairobi, Mr Odinga said: "They should suspend him and send peace forces to Zimbabwe to ensure free and fair elections." Mr Odinga, a vocal critic of President Mugabe, says the AU would set a dangerous precedent by accepting him as "a duly elected president". The UN has urged African leaders to try to negotiate a solution to the Zimbabwe's crisis. Some analysts have pointed to Kenya as an example of how it could be resolved. Mr Odinga was named prime minister as part of a power-sharing deal to end political violence in which some 1,500 people were killed, many in ethnic clashes. No talks Zimbabwe's opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) says the way forward must reflect the outcome of the first round of voting in March, when Mr Tsvangirai won more votes than Mr Mugabe. ZIMBABWE AND ITS NEIGHBOURS info-graphic Zimbabwe's opposition wants neighbouring countries to persuade Robert Mugabe to step down. info-graphic South Africa's Thabo Mbeki is the key mediator. He has not criticised Robert Mugabe, despite pressure from the ruling ANC. info-graphic Zambian President Levy Mwanawasa has taken the toughest line. info-graphic Angola's President Jose Eduardo dos Santos is one of Robert Mugabe's closest allies. info-graphic Botswana has summoned a Zimbabwean envoy to complain about the violence. It wants to re-distribute white-owned farms to black villagers. info-graphic Mozambique has hosted some white farmers forced out of Zimbabwe when their land was seized. info-graphic Tanzania's ruling party has a history of backing Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF party. info-graphic DR Congo's President Joseph Kabila is an ally of Robert Mugabe who sent troops to help his father, Laurent Kabila, fight rebels. But 3m people from Malawi are in Zimbabwe and many were badly hit by the farm invasions. NEXT 1 of 9 The opposition is prepared to take part in a transitional arrangement or a government of national unity, but it says there are no negotiations currently under way between Mr Tsvangirai and the ruling Zanu-PF party. The MDC is asking the AU to appoint three eminent African envoys to work full time on the crisis. The US ambassador to the United Nations, Zalmay Khalilzad, says he is pressing for the Security Council to impose sanctions against Zimbabwe. The US is expected to present a draft resolution on Wednesday calling for an arms embargo and a freeze on the assets of key individuals and companies. Correspondents say it may be difficult to persuade South Africa, Russia, China and others to accept UN sanctions. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino has suggested the US may impose unilateral diplomatic and economic sanctions. Few African leaders have spoken out about the election result while AU discussions continue. The South African presidency said it would consider reports from election observers together with other members of the Southern African Development Community (Sadc) before adopting a unified position regarding the result. President Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania, the African Union chairman, pointedly congratulated the people of Zimbabwe over the election, but not Mr Mugabe himself. Strong words Africa's longest serving leader, Gabon President Omar Bongo, has given the strongest suggestion of recognising Mr Mugabe as president, saying "he was elected, he took an oath, and he is here with us, so he is president". US Assistant Secretary of State for Africa Jendayi Frazer said she expected African leaders to take a harder line with Mr Mugabe behind closed doors. "I would suggest not to take the soft words of the opening plenary as a reflection of the deep concern of the leaders here for the situation in Zimbabwe," she said. "I would expect them to have very, very strong words for him." The BBC's southern Africa correspondent Peter Biles says that apart from the recent political violence in Zimbabwe, there is continuing economic hardship, with inflation in the region of nine million per cent and the country heading for the worst harvest in 60 years.
