Junta mouthpiece speaks of war

HARARE - A few days before the MDC won the speakership of Parliament the following revealing snippet was carried in the state-controlled Herald newspaper:


Presidential spokesman George Charamba in his weekly column  in the paper on Saturday, August 23 2008, had this to say: “We need Government, a strong Government, which will take bold decisions without flinching. Globally, developments pitting Russia against Nato present real opportunities. Back home, the mature realisation that the enemy within needs to be handled conclusively, will help. Structures of war – economic war – are needed and will come shortly. As will leadership. In the few months it will become apparent whether or not the revolution can or cannot defend itself. By any means necessary.”
