RE: "Mugabe: Outstaying his Welcome" (Gwynne Dyer, March 30) From my limited knowledge of the circumstances of the world: Mugabe does have some essentially good intentions, but is unfortunately a practitioner of thuggery, similar to U.S. foreign policy makers. To compare this man to Arafat and Castro is thus foolish as those two leaders opposed, with great odds against them, U.S. foreign policy makers. They are not perfect either, but I see them [as being] more humane and more interested in the welfare of their people. This is serious business you are writing about. Don't lower your integrity by writing your article as if you're just boasting to pals your unenlightened point of view.
