"It's nowhere near what we wanted to see."

The tragedy that is Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) has taken a turn that can only be described as for the worse.

Pressure from SADC (the South African Development Community; the regional cooperation bloc) and a lack of meaningful support from other parts of the international community has basically handed power back to the ZANU-PF regime of Robert Mugabe.

Mr. Morgan Tsvangirai and the MDC party, who should have gained the government in elections last year that were whole-cloth manipulated by the ZANU-PF, has been functionally relegated to a negligible role.

There is nothing, nothing, good about this outcome.
