The New York Times today calls for Western countries to not recognize Mugabe's government, which I'm amazed any of them still do at this point, and for targeted sanctions against individuals. My immediate reaction is to wonder when and how often targeted sanctions have accomplished anything, but hey, they're an American paper, they have to call for us to do something.
The ANC in South Africa, however, feels otherwise. While it took Mugabe to task today, it also took the West to task for interfering. Mbeki's non-response to this crisis is rather disgraceful, but on the whole I think the ANC has the right balance here. I can't imagine an outsider-implemented change of government in Mugabe. In my view, the UK in particular forfeited that right during its colonial years. Change in Zimbabwe must come from within, and with the help of African neighbors. Not that Western countries can't lend our support, but if the past few years have taught us anything, it's that democracy can only become a lasting institution when it is homegrown.
