Another Pro-U.S. Ruler Goes Berserk, Massacres Protestors

As if the slaughter unleashed by Uzbekistan’s Islam Karimov, a staunch American ally in the “war on terrorism,” wasn’t enough, another pro-U.S. commie dictator, Meles Zenawi of Ethiopia, is mowing down protestors in the streets: 22 dead, so far, dozens wounded, and opposition leaders are in jail.

The protestors, many of them students, were outraged that the government appeared to have rigged the election returns. Ethiopia’s recent election, marked by a complete absence of transparency and fairness, was widely touted as a “test of democracy.” I give Ethiopian “president” Zenawi an F-minus.
