Recently the world over has criticized Iran and its leader IRANIAN President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for pursuing a nuclear program despite threats of more United Nations sanctions. Yet leaders like President Robert Mugabe welcomed the Iranian president and seem to support the cause. What strikes the people all over the world familiar with Zimbabwe is that Zimbabwe is a country which holds uranium deposit which has not yet been exploited. Yet Zimababwe state media said Ahmadinejad’s visit was part of the drive to strengthen ties between countries at odds with the west.
Mugabe is an open opponent of the western countries usually when given a chance will blame the western countries for all the ill comings of the failed state Zimbabwe. Iran is also a strong opponent to the western countries and its ideals. Yet these two leaders seem to hold something in common (human rights offenders) the MDC and its leader Tsvangirai could only stand aside and call the visit a “colossal political scandal” The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) attacked Ahmadinejad over his record on human rights and other issues. This could easily see another point were the Zimbabwean political coalition might stick and possibly derail the coalition.
“He has made his reputation as a warmonger, a trampler of human rights, an executioner of those with dissenting voices and leader of questionable legitimacy,” it said in a statement by the MDC pokes person.
The party said Ahmadinejad’s visit would send the wrong message about Zimbabwe at a time it was trying to show the world it was working to restore democracy. Elections won by Mugabe in 2008 were condemned around the world. Yet again despite strong opposition from the MDC, Mugabe seems to do what he wants in Zimbabwe and carries on as everything was normal.

Iran faces a possible new round of U.N. sanctions over its refusal to halt uranium enrichment. The West accuses Tehran of trying to build nuclear weapons. Iran says it aims only to generate electricity. Northern Zimbabwe has uranium deposits, but no exploration contracts have been awarded so far and the size of the deposits has not been made public. The state mining company has formed a joint venture with a Chinese firm to explore for uranium. This is a very dangerous coalition between the two leaders because there intentions seem to hamper the calls for leaders all over the world who aim to reduce and disarm there nuclear strong holds. Therefore what hope is there for the world, whilst some leaders like President Obama of the USA are calling for peace around the world and the likes of Mugabe and Ahmadinejad seem to be pulling the other way? and making deals which might help Iran in its uranium enrichment.
What hope is there for the people of Zimbabwe when the government of Zimbabwe seems to defy all the regulation set by the world its self to fight for peace and forget about nuclear weapons? What hope is there for the world to stop powerful ill intentioned men like Ahmadinejad if Mugabe gives him what he desperately wants? Therefore the world should pull together and open their eyes to stop people like these who seem to threaten the peace of the world. The future of the world rests in the willingness of the world to open their eyes and stop things like this happening. Mugabe and Ahmadinejad should not be let to be the Hitler’s of tomorrow.
Mugabe always does what he wants and seems to hide his intention what have you. The world should stop this because they will be no hope for peace in the world if these man are allowed to continue and making deadly deals like this. What hope is there for the people of Zimbabwe if this is aloowed to happen infront of everyones eyes, yet alone what hope is there for the world if Mugabe is allowed to roam free like this and play with the peace loving nations of the world. I call upon the International community not to turn a blid eye to this and work as one for the future of the world.
