In this week’s Throwback Thursday, we re-visit a 2009 exclusive interview in which a combative, healthy and young-looking President Robert Mugabe sparred with CNN’s most feared interrogator a few months after the highly contested elections widely believed to have been won by Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC.

Mugabe is known for his selective granting of interviews to a few international media agencies, where his default position is to go on the offence throughout the interaction.

In a wide-ranging interview with the no-nonsense Christiane Amanpour, British-Iranian television host and chief international correspondent for CNN, Mugabe didn’t mince his words and gave Amanpour a run for her money.

Towards the end of the interview, Amanpour riled up Mugabe when she played a clip of Emeritus Archbishop Desmond Tutu saying: “He has destroyed a wonderful country which used to be a [bread basket], which has now become a basket case itself. He is responsible for gross violations.”

“That’s nonsense. It’s devilish talk. He doesn’t know what he is talking about. The little man!” a visibly outraged Mugabe stung back. Amanpour continued stepping on Mugabe’s toes, and reminded him Tutu was a Nobel Laureate.

“You don’t know what his status in the ANC amounts to,” Mugabe retorted.

The discussion then took a detour to the ubiquitous status apportioned to Nelson Mandela as the liberator of all oppressed people on the African continent, and asked whether Mugabe was envious of Mandela’s stripes.

Mugabe would have none of the condescension. “President Mandela is President Mandela, Robert Mugabe is Robert Mugabe. Look at him in his own circumstances. I know my people have great praise for me. I know African praise think highly of me, and that satisfies me.”

This afforded Amanpour what should have been a home-run opportunity. She reminded Mugabe his statement was incompatible with the reality on the ground, as he had just lost the elections. She bravely asked him what motivated him to cling to power by the skin of his teeth.

“You don’t leave power when imperialists demand you leave. There is a regime-change programme by the United States and the United Kingdom, which is which is not just targeting Robert Mugabe, but Robert Mugabe and his party [to remove them] out of power. That naturally means we dig in and remain in our trenches,” Mugabe responded.

Mugabe belligerently refused to state whether he would be standing for re-election in future (he did), only saying that would depend on what he would decide: “I won’t tell you now!”

In response, Amanpour launched another missile and asked whether his reluctance to relinquish power was out of fear of being prosecuted by the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

Zimbabwe's First Lady Grace Mugabe, 52, is widely seen as vying to replace her 93-year-old husband Robert Mugabe when he dies

Zimbabwe’s First Lady Grace Mugabe, 52, is widely seen as vying to replace her 93-year-old husband Robert Mugabe when he dies.

“I don’t care about that the international [court] … What they decide is entirely their own affair. I am concerned about Zimbabwe, about the life of Zimbabweans. Don’t forget it was my party which brought democracy into the country. We had to fight the British for democracy, for one man for one vote,” Mugabe stuck to his guns.

Amanpour pressed on one last time before running out of time, and reminded Mugabe the recent elections in 2009 were “heavily disputed” and that he was spewing hypocritical rhetoric. Mugabe remained undeterred.

“Elections don’t go all that smoothly all the time in many countries. That is the situation. That is what happens elsewhere. They didn’t go smoothly here [USA] during the first term of office of president Bush. The 400 000 votes, where did they go? They were stolen by Mr Bush, and you people said nothing about it,” he challenged Amanpour.

Amanpour rattled Mugabe a bit further, and said the Florida’s “stolen votes” issue was “heavily covered” and that there was “a dispute around the word, ‘stolen’”.

She unequivocally quizzed Mugabe on whether the power-sharing agreement in Zimbabwe would stick, as Zanu-PF controlled all the heavy-duty ministries.

“The inclusive government is a real power-sharing government, don’t denigrate it. We have 14 countries in the SADC [Southern African Development Community] which are responsible for assisting us in bringing that about and making it right. Read what they say. Listen to what they say,” Mugabe concluded.

Green Day released a massive greatest hits album on Friday, but the trio isn’t saying “Good Riddance” anytime soon.

The Grammy Award-winning band and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees released Greatest Hits: God’s Favorite Band, an album that spans about 30 years.

Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong said he thinks it’s the perfect soundtrack for our “age of outrage,” and rather than a farewell album, is “sort of like a book of short stories.”

“I don’t think there’s really any sadness,” Armstrong said by phone from Bogota, Colombia. “I think it’s more a little bit of nostalgia and reflecting on what we’ve done in the past and delivering to our fans.”

Armstrong and the band, which also includes drummer Tre Cool and bassist Mike Dirnt, said the timing just felt right this year for the compilation.

“The great thing is we’re young enough that we have another lifetime in front of us. That’s the part that I’m excited about,” said Armstrong, who was 16 when the band was started in 1986.

The new 22-track collection includes such hits as “When I Come Around,” “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life),” “American Idiot,” “21 Guns,” “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “She” and “Wake Me Up When September Ends.”

It also includes a new song called “Back in the USA,” which has the lyric “I woke up to a bitter storm.” Armstrong said it was written after Green Day returned to the U.S. from a European tour following Donald Trump’s presidential election.

“I felt we’d come back to a different America that I was trying to recognize,” he said.

The group also added a reworked version of “Ordinary World,” which includes a duet with country singer Miranda Lambert. It was recorded in about an hour in a small studio in Denver when both Green Day and Lambert’s tours ended up in the same city, said Armstrong.

Armstrong and Lambert had already performed at the Grammys and he said, “She just nailed it.”

Green Day previously put out a greatest hits album in 2001, but that was before the trio’s groundbreaking album, American Idiot, was released.

The group is known for its raw, pop-punk approach, and is finding a new audience in 2017 through such protest songs as “American Idiot,” which was written about former Republican President George W. Bush,

“We always live in chaos and once you think you start to have it figured out, it changes immediately,” he said. “That’s just the way our culture is. Right now, we’re in the age of outrage and revenge.”

When Jimmy Meeks reached Sutherland Springs, Texas, the First Baptist Church was screened off as a crime scene as experts investigated the Sunday morning massacre that claimed 26 lives.

As a retired police officer, and a Baptist preacher, Meeks didn’t need to enter the ravaged sanctuary. As a church-security consultant, he paid special attention to the church’s parking lot and the surrounding area.

When the gunman arrived, he parked across the street. He had to cover lots of ground to reach the church.

“It’s just a simple little building,” said Meeks, who is part of a “Sheepdog Seminars” team, training church leaders how to protect biblical “sheep” from “wolves.”

“There are churches like this one all over the country — there always have been and there always will be. … So many churches don’t have someone outside in the parking lot, standing watch. They don’t see the danger coming.”

Church-security issues are back in the news as America faces renewed debates about safety, faith and the Second Amendment.

But some church leaders, like Meeks, have been studiously paying attention to church-security issues ever since the night of Sept. 15, 1999, when an angry outsider entered Wedgwood Baptist in Fort Worth, Texas, and killed seven during a youth-group prayer rally.

Since 1999, at least 800 people have died in church attacks across America, said Meeks, who has 35 years of police experience, including 11 years when he led a Fort Worth church while serving as an officer in nearby Hurst. Two of his areas of expertise are hostage negotiations and crime-prevention techniques.

So far, 108 people have been killed in churches during 2017. The previous record was 77 in one year.

Meeks stressed that the Sheepdog team ( didn’t go to Sutherland Springs on business. Along with concerned clergy from Texas and elsewhere in America, “We went there to put our arms around people and let them weep on our shoulders. … We’ll help with other things down the line.”

One of the problems, whenever another tragedy causes headlines, is that some people think the solution to every church-security problem is one word — “guns.” One critic, noted Meeks, recently accused his organization of trying to “organize an NRA convention” in a local Bible Belt church.

“Guns are not the answer,” he said. “I tell people that I have the greatest safety tip in the history of safety tips — WAKE UP.”

The bottom line: “Waking up” does not mean urging throngs of church folks to start packing concealed weapons when they take their places in pews and pulpits.

“There are many people carrying guns who have no right to be doing that. They are dangerous — dangerous to other people and dangerous to their own families,” Meeks said. When a threat arises, “people don’t rise to the level of whatever ability they think they have. They sink to the level of their training. … You don’t need someone who was in the military long ago bringing a weapon to church when they haven’t taken a shot on a range in 20 years or gone to a safety course — ever.”

Religious groups may or may not choose to guide people into gun safety classes. That isn’t the emphasis at most church-security gatherings.

The key, Meeks said, is that pastors must talk openly about safety issues, including the need to have a few trained church volunteers or off-duty police at strategic points around the church, such as parking lots and major entrances. It’s also important for church members to trust their leaders during times of strife in their families. If there is any chance of family violence, church leaders need to hear about it — with systems in place to keep the information confidential.

“Words come first. You have to have people trained to deal with angry words and upset people long before they bring their conflicts to church. If it gets to guns, it’s too late,” he said. “But pastors just don’t want to talk about all this, because they’re scared of running people off.

“You see, church folks still think that people out there are like them, that they’re basically good and they don’t want to hurt anyone. That’s just not true. We know for a fact now that it isn’t true.”

When 16 primary school children were massacred in Dunblane in 1996, the United Kingdom responded by tightening already strict gun laws to ban civilian ownership of handguns.

The United States has responded to nearly 20 years of high-profile school shootings with a booming school security industry. To protect children from potential attackers, companies have offered everything from hi-tech locks for classroom doors to bulletproof whiteboards and backpacks.

break the cycle

Some American schools have even staged fake mass shootings, complete with replica guns, to help their students practice how to respond to an attack. The federal government has spent hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ dollars to put police officers in schools, including $45m in the year after the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school shooting alone. The market for security equipment in the education sector was estimated at $2.68bn in 2017, according to industry analysts at IHS Markit.

Some kinds of preparation have paid off. When staff at the Rancho Tehama elementary school in California heard gunshots on Tuesday, they quickly put the entire school into lockdown. Police said a shooter rampaging through the rural town spent about six minutes shooting into the school, but that he could not get inside. One student was shot through the wall as children lay on the floor to avoid the gunfire, but was in stable condition. School staff were praised for a quick response that seemed likely to have saved many lives.

But school safety experts say that American schools’ preparation for the next school shooting has sometimes backfired, resulting in policy choices that make children less safe.

The National Association of School Psychologists cautions American schools against preparing for shootings with simulated attacks that could end up traumatizing young students or even the school’s staff.

The group notes in its guidance to schools that “Armed assailants in schools account for only 1% of homicides among school-age youth.”

Basic lockdown drills, like the one the Rancho Tehama school successfully carried out this week, are appropriate, Katherine C Cowan, a spokeswoman for the organization, said. But the group cautions against “full scale simulations of an armed assailant coming into the school building and in effect acting out what to do and what can happen”.

Typically, in these situations, “the person playing the active shooter has a gun” that fires “pellets instead of bullets”.

“That can be extremely traumatizing, particularly for kids, but it can also be traumatizing for staff,” she said. These trainings have “grown exponentially since Sandy Hook,” she said, and “There are some instances that we’ve heard of where people have been physically injured as part of the process.”

Some teachers have raised concerns about the emotional impact of even simple lockdown drills that require young students to hide in their classrooms and remain absolutely silent.

“Instead of controlling guns and inconveniencing those who would use them, we are rounding up and silencing a generation of schoolchildren, and terrifying those who care for them,” a Virginia schoolteacher wrote in 2014, in an op-ed that described her thoughts while hiding with her students in a closet during one of her school’s frequent lockdown drills. “We are giving away precious time to teach and learn while we cower in fear.”

“Zero tolerance” school discipline policies, which gained prominence after the 1999 school shooting in Columbine, Colorado, also resulted in more frequent suspensions, especially for students of color, said Dewey Cornell, a school safety expert at the University of Virginia.

Multiple studies have shown that more students enter the criminal justice system when more police officers are in schools, sparking concern that the attempt to protect American schools from mass shootings had unintentionally fueled a school-to-prison pipeline that disproportionately harmed students of color.

Don Bridges, the president of the National Association of School Resource Officers, said that current best practice emphasized that police officers in schools not play any role in school discipline. He said that problems emerged only when police officers did not have the appropriate training for their role in schools.

Before Columbine, many schools did not even have crisis plans, Bridges said. Now, having a detailed plan of how to respond to threats is mandatory.

But school shooting fears can put a strain on tight law enforcement budgets, as well as on school budgets. After the Sandy Hook shooting, Bridges’ local police chief was asked to put police officers in all the elementary schools. The chief’s response was “He could do that, but then there would be no officers to put on the streets.”

On average in America, “a homicidal shooting occurs in a school about once every 6,000 years, and that’s not a good use of police officer resources,” Cornell said.

After Sandy Hook, experts calculated that expanding school security measures statewide in Florida could cost $100m a year. A report from the American Bar Association cited an estimate that having a police officer in every American school would cost approximately $3.2bn a year.

“Some school security measures are useful and helpful, but not if it means we cut the budget for prevention measures,” Cornell said. “When schools are spending millions of dollars to rebuild the front entrance of school buildings and they have to cut their counseling staff, I don’t think that’s a net gain in safety.”

Cornell said he did not know of any formal regulation of the school security marketplace.

The Florida Christian school made headlines this month for selling $120 bulletproof panels to insert into children’s backpacks at its school store.

“The teachers are trained to instruct the students to use their backpacks as a shield to protect themselves,” the school’s dean of students wrote in an email to CNN.

In 2013, in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut, a university in Maryland announced it was buying 200 bulletproof whiteboards for classrooms, at a reported cost of more than $60,000.

“For the most part, it’s kind of a third rail to talk about school security,” Cornell said. “If you talk critically of school security it sounds like you don’t want to protect children.”

“School security is important, but it’s not the main way that we want to prevent shootings,” Cornell said. “We would like to prevent shootings before the gunman shows up in the parking lot.

Culture critic: Congress Doesn’t ‘Get’ Its Pervert Problem

The Week’s Matthew Walther has a withering view of Tuesday’s congressional hearing on Capitol Hill sexual misconduct: “From start to finish, the proceedings were a bland, tedious exercise in the deployment of managerial professionalist BS in service of a status quo that virtually everyone in the room either approves of or would be happy to ignore.” One witness suggested that, in Walther’s words, “putting up posters full of legalese written in tiny print is the surest way of making it absolutely clear” to a member of Congress that “he should not under any circumstances be showing his penis to members of his staff or his fellow representatives.” Adds Walther: “We don’t need more ‘compliance’ training or clearer ‘guidelines’ . . . We just need people to behave with honor and decency.”

Foreign desk: Zimbabwe’s Coup Is No Big Win

If there were any kind of justice in Zimbabwe, says Bloomberg’s Eli Lake, Robert Mugabe would have been removed from power by a free and fair election” and “the country he ruined could begin the long process of recovery.” But now he’s out anyway, “and that’s a good thing.” Problem is, “the military coup that unseated him shows no signs of ending Zimbabwe’s political and economic decline.” Indeed, “this is not a moment of hope” but rather a power struggle in which Mugabe’s ex-typist wife — who’d been “been positioning to take over the country herself” — lost out to his former vice president “and all-around enforcer.” Zimbabwe “deserves better” than either of them. For now, though, “the generals have paved the way for the dictator to be replaced by one of his henchmen.”

Beauty contestants: Taking a Selfie for Peace

Despite ugly criticism from home, Iraq’s contestant in the Miss Universe beauty contest is defending a selfie she took with her Israeli counterpart, calling it a desire for peace. Yet though Sarah Idan, who now lives in the United States, stressed that the photo “does not signal support for the government of Israel,” she refused to remove it from her Instagram account, which has garnered 1,500 likes. She and Miss Israel Adar Gandelsman captioned the joint photo: “Practicing bringing world peace.”

Editors: Pentagon Long Ignored Gun Database Reporting

Under federal law, the Texas church-massacre gunman was barred from purchasing a weapon because of his 2012 court-martial conviction for assaulting his wife and her infant. But the Pentagon never reported that to the FBI database used for background checks. And the editors of USA Today note that this was not “a single record tragically falling through the cracks.” Indeed, “the Pentagon has known for years about gaping holes in the military’s system to report convictions and fingerprints to federal databases meant to keep guns out of dangerous hands.” Those holes “were originally discovered during the Clinton administration and the system remained porous while President [Barack] Obama was in office.” Yet little was done to correct things.

Conservative: Repeal the 17th Amendment

The Federalist’s John Daniel Davidson has an idea for avoiding future Roy Moore debacles: repealing the 17th Amendment, which mandates that US senators be elected by popular vote instead of by state legislatures, as originally required by the Constitution. Though it “seems odd today,” that earlier provision “was crucial to the Founders’ grand design for the republic.” Congress, they felt, needed to be both national and federal: The people would be represented in the House, where representation is decided by population, and the states in the Senate, where each one gets two members. It was also a way, they felt, of “tempering the passions of the electorate” — something we probably could use today, given “the current wave of populism.”

Being a fugitive is not just physical but mental, it’s about civil liberties.”

— Juergen T. Steinmetz, Chairman, ICTP

NEW YORK, NY, USA, November 16, 2017 / — Zimbabwe is facing a new reality after military intervention and the removal of their longtime president Robert Mugabe.

It’s time for military diplomacy to show the people friendly side of the Zimbabwe Military. This is a message echoed by senior travel and tourism leaders from around the world.

The International Institute for Peace Through Tourism (IIPT) [ ] Founder and President Louis D’Amore expressed concern and solidarity with Hon. Dr. Walter Mzembi and his family as he faces being a fugitive as a result of the military intervention in Zimbabwe.

Juergen Steinmetz, the Chairman of the Hawaii, Brussels, Seychelles and Bali based International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) [ ] with tourism board members in more than 70 countries said:

“Well-meaning Revolutions do not eat their children nor criminalize them, let alone their best. Mzembi is an excellent diplomat, an international citizen of repute, incarcerating him when he is Zimbabwe’s best option for dialogue and diplomacy out of this crisis kills common sense. He is still legitimately the chief diplomat of his country and sending him on the run ruins an opportunity for trade-offs and concessions and ultimately the attainment of sustainable peace and stability and legitimacy of what the Military is trying to sell to the world.

“Being a fugitive is not just physical but mental, it’s about civil liberties. Civilians do not need armored cars nor high-performance guns to engage them as was the case with the inordinate show of force with the capture of the Zimbabwe Minister of Finance Dr. Chombo.

“It’s time for military diplomacy to show the people friendly side of the Military.”

Yesterday, ICTP President Professor Geoffrey Lipman said: “We are watching current events in Zimbabwe, independently and objectively, with no partisan interest.

“However, we do know those strange things happen in uncertain times and we want to go on record for the well being of Walter Mzembi – until recently a very active Tourism Minister and latterly Foreign Minister of Zimbabwe.

“We have known and admired Dr. Mzembi for years and have watched as he has traveled the globe representing his country with skill, dignity, and pride, most recently in an honorable quest for Secretary General of UNWTO.

“We call on the global travel community to join us in our best wishes and support for our friend Walter and his family.”

The Peace Through Tourism chief, Louis D’Amore, added: “Dr. Mzembi has been a friend of IIPT since 2010 when we first met at World Travel Market and then collaborated during the IIPT Fifth African Conference in Lusaka regarding the successful joint proposal of Zambia and Zimbabwe to co-host the UNWTO 20th General Assembly at Victoria Falls Zambia and subsequently regarding the ‘IIPT Great Falls Peace Parks Initiative’ planned for 2018.”

Dr. Mzembi honorably represented Zimbabwe this past year as one of the leading candidates for the position of UNWTO Secretary-General with the endorsement of the African Union. He has also been a creative contributor to sustainable tourism strategies and development in Zimbabwe and all of Africa as United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Regional Commission for Africa Chairperson; Chairman of the Southern Africa Development Community Committee of Tourism Ministers; UNWTO Executive Council Member UNWTO Co-President of the UNWTO 20th General Assembly; and a three-time President of the Africa Travel Association.

Hon. Dr. Mzembi is also the recipient of several prestigious awards including African Tourism Minister of the Year; African Tourism Investment Awards; Africa Leadership and Inspiration Award; Brand Leadership Award and others.

Dr. Mzembi will be a keynote speaker at the UNWTO – IIPT Global Summit: Sustainable Tourism for Development and Peace announced this past week at World Travel Market, being held in Montreal, August 27-30, 2018.

IIPT Founder D’Amore urges travel and tourism leaders throughout the world to join with UNWTO, ICTP and IIPT in support and solidarity with, Hon. Walter Mzembi and his family during this challenging time in Zimbabwe.

People seem to love to make jokes at the expense of airport security. Airport security is to travelling, as hospital food is to hospital stays. They’re the easy target to pick on. If you don’t tell your tale about how annoying customs was, did you even really travel?

I’ve done a decent amount of travel in the last while -more than a hundred flights in the year and a bit since I started keeping count. In fact, as I type this, I’m sitting at the airport waiting for number 103.

Roughly two-thirds of these flights, including this one I’m about to board, have been international, so I’ve done my fair share of pat downs and random swabbing. Actually, I suspect that being a 20-year-old guy who travels so often and lists his occupation as ‘public speaker’ has thrown up a big red flashing light in that room with the one-way glass, because I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t ‘randomly’ selected for additional screening. That included 20 minutes ago, funnily enough.

Just a few weeks back, unbeknown to me my bag was refused loading on to my plane due to a security alert, and didn’t arrive until 2 days later. My theory is someone might have been suspicious why I was catching my fourth transtasman flight in a week, and I’m guessing the contents might have had a thorough checking over by the time they got to me.


My point is that I’ve got a bit to gripe about when it comes to going through airport security, if I so wished. But I don’t wish to. Instead, I’ve got nothing but the highest regards and compliments for our airport security. I’d rather give them a big thanks, and so should you, for a few reasons.

Firstly, because 99 per cent of the airport security personal I have dealt with in the last year have been fantastic. Just friendly, personable, typical Kiwis. Not the cliche image of a big angry man smacking on some rubber gloves in a back room and telling you to squat and cough. They’re straightforward enough to perform their job effectively, while simultaneously being approachable enough to put you at ease. Something which can’t be easy in a job dealing with that many people everyday.

Secondly, because of how good our airport security staff are compared to the rest of world. I’ve already said how kind, polite, and far from intimidating they are, but they deserve even more credit for this when you compare them on a global scale. Anyone who has been to the USA knows what I mean.

Sure, I’ve had a few interactions with less than polite staff back home, but everyone has a bad day sometime. They’re certainly far outnumbered by positive experiences. It’s also nice that everyone’s not holding guns, but that’s another story altogether.

And lastly, and most importantly, because they’re just doing their bloody job. An important job at that, one which has never been more important than right now. I’ve heard a few smug retorts to that point before centred around ‘well how many terrorists have they ever caught’.

If that’s what popped into your head, then you need to pause and assess how ridiculous that statement is. Security is just as much about functioning as a deterrent as it is anything else.

So next time you travel, don’t be that person who feels the need to debate with the security officer about whether you should be allowed to bring your water bottle through.

Don’t mumble something under your breath when you get asked to take your laptop out of your bag. Instead, how about you smile and say thanks to the people who have to stand there and cop it from grumpy travelers all day, just because they’re trying to keep you safe. Maybe you’ll get a smile in return.
