George Bush and his White House continue to ratchet up the pressure on Mugabe's State House and it's cronies. The former just announced a new and expanded list of targeted persons for their involvement in impeding Zimbabwean democracy. Here is the list (it's a pdf and is 49 pages long). You'll need to go down to the end to see the latest additions.

In a public battle of wills, Mugabe continues to blame the sanctions for the rapid contraction of Zimbabwe's economy. Bush on the other hand insists the sanctions are not intended to harm Zimbabwean people,
"This action is not aimed at the people of Zimbabwe, but rather at those most responsible for their plight," said White House spokeperson Dana Perino.
