Double Standards Galore


That made my day:

Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has launched a scathing attack on the “born- again colonialists” of the United States and the United Kingdom.

The US should lead by example and dismantle its weapons of mass destruction, before demanding the same of Iraq, he said.

He also questioned the legitimacy of George Bush’s 2000 election victory, saying Mr Bush was in no position to lecture Zimbabwe on democratic elections. […]

The Zimbabwe leader said that the US courts which ruled that Mr Bush had won the closely fought 2000 election was “dominated by Republican judges.”

“Is it not ironical that Mr Bush who was not really elected should deny my legitimacy, the legitimacy of President Mugabe, established by many observer groups from Africa and the Third World.

“Who, in these circumstances, should the world impose sanctions on? Robert Mugabe or George Bush?” he asked.

That’s what you get for double standards. You lose all moral authority.
