The U.S. is now taking a hard line against Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, refusing to support a power-sharing agreement that would leave him as President. Jendayi Frazer, U.S. assistant secretary of State for African affairs made the announcement in South Africa, a clear signal to the influential South African government that it should join the U.S. in abandoning Mugabe. So far, South Africa has said that a deal in which Mugabe is president and his opponent, Morgan Tsvangirai, is prime minister, is the only option. Frazer said that Mugabe is, "a man who's lost it, who's losing his mind, who's out of touch with reality." She pointed to his scapegoating of the West for a cholera outbreak in his country. Frazer insisted that if Mugabe's neighbors, "go to Mugabe and tell him to go, I do think he would go."
