According to the Washington Post, the International Crisis Group is backing a new plan to “save” Zimbabwe. Just what is this silver bullet, you ask? The plan calls for Robert Mugabe to live out his golden years in peace, with all the silver and gold he has allegedly plundered from international donors while his “liberated” country has sunk deeper and deeper into despair. In addition to keeping his booty, the plan calls for the originator of “the right to bash” to receive full amnesty.
Is this the best that the human rights community can offer the people of Zimbabwe? Do Zimbabwe’s neighbors — who admittedly are paying a price for Mugabe’s deeds by taking in hundreds of thousands of refugees — have the right to hide Mugabe from prosecution?
