In Zimbabwe, Sovereignty Be Damned...

The news out of Zimbabwe is that Mugabe has succeeded in intimidating the opposition into dropping out of the sham Presidential election runoff in order to win another farcical election. This begs the question, can’t the world afford to do more to end a two-bit dictatorship in a place as backwards as Zimbabwe? Why does democracy and human rights continue to take a back seat to sovereignty? Isn’t it time we chuck the outdated notions imbedded in the Treaty of Westphalia some 450 years ago?

Real conservatives shouldn't be afraid of being labeled "neo-conservatives." We should stand up for reform of the international system and wield a big stick where needed. This looks like such a time.
