excuses for post-election violence

All manner of factors (read excuses) have been cited as the causes of post_ election violence including land issues,youth unemployment,rise in cost of living, and you could add another 101 excuses!

In 2002 General elections, where were all those issues. Or you want to tell me they just spontaneously cropped_up in 2007?! For those of us who have selective amnesia, there were NO tribal clashes in 2002!

Those citing the disputed presidential elections as the cause should have their heads examined! Remember the Bush_Al Gore saga involving stolen elections? How many Americans were killed over that ‘rigging’?!

By the bye, should we expect a major post_ election violence episode in the UNITED STATES of AMERICA, akin to the kenyan one? I mean, rate of unemployment in the US is only rivaled by the rate of inflation in Zimbabwe!
