Letter to The Editor - they were overthrown by an unholy coalition of communist terrorists, unprincipled international meddlers and foolish idealists

to THE AUSTRALIAN
     The fall of Robert Mugabe from power in Zimbabwe inevitably arouses thoughts of how much better than his were the Rhodesian Front governments led by Ian Smith in the Sixties and Seventies. They knew from the experience of other ‘liberated’ African nations such as Ghana and the Belgian Congo the disaster that awaited if they were to capitulate to ignorant or corrupt demands for ‘majority rule now’.  With nobility they sought to maintain law and order and civilized standards in their land, while supporting African advancement at a slow but realistic rate.

     It was a great tragedy, especially for the majority of Rhodesian Africans, that they were overthrown by an unholy coalition of communist terrorists, unprincipled international meddlers and foolish idealists.
