I found this site surfing.

I found that some on the left, don't support struggle against Mugabe, because he is an enemy of the US and UK, and he is a friend of Chavez. I think it's dumb to believe, "my enemy's enemy, is my friend".

Good luck with your struggle.

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.
