WANNA BORROW A PREDATOR? (via David Hill, The Bronx)

Rocket scientist plots Mugabe's demise: A brilliant expatriate promises to do everything he can to dislodge the Zimbabwean President - and the 'little Mugabes' within his own opposition party (Christina Lamb, March 06, 2006, The Australian)

A ZIMBABWEAN rocket scientist has swept back into his country after 15 years abroad and set himself up as a radical opposition leader, vowing to bring down President Robert Mugabe and end the misrule that has left millions on the edge of starvation.

"We can't expect the outside world to bring about change," said Arthur Mutambara, 39, leader of a breakaway faction of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change.

"As a Zimbabwean, I've had enough of seeing my fellow citizens suffering. The game's up. I'm going to remove Robert Mugabe, I promise you, with every tool at my disposal."

Zimbabweans have been astonished by the sudden arrival on the political scene of one of the country's most eminent expatriate academics.

Article leaves out the most important thing, who's bank rolling this effort? Is this for real, or is he just another lefty looking to get a piece of the pie?
