Excellent comparison, but I think that Mugabe leaves Gollum for dead. He sounds like something straight out of Tacitus.

It's people like Mugabe that make you secretly wish that Executive Order prohibiting assassination wasn't in effect.

OT, thanks for all the posts you've done on the War on (some) Drugs, especially the ones regarding Mexico. I had to give a brief for my AFROTC class re: Mexico and the info contained in those posts was very helpful.

Peter, heh, Nero at least had the good grace to take his own life. I'm thinking Sulla during his virtual dictatorship. Or, better yet, a long rein of Caligula.

Mike, wow, I'm flattered. Should I be referring to you as Lt. Mike or Cpt. Mike? Stay tuned as my Mexico posting is hardly over.

Haha, try Cadet Mike till May, then it'll be 2d Lt. Mike. When I said "my" AFROTC class, I guess I should've specified...my AFROTC class that I'm a student in. :-p
