Zimbabwe: who knew a park was dangerous?

It's always entertaining to consider the incredible flights of fantasy people around the world take, with respect to the US.

"The ambassador must consider himself very lucky that he is dealing with a professional army that the Zimbabwe National Army is," Mugabe's spokesman George Charamba said in a statement published by state media on Friday.

"Elsewhere, and definitely in America, he would have been a dead man. His adventure is really dangerous."

I don't think Zimbabwe understands how america operates. We don't just shoot people who stray into classified areas, and we don't stick classified areas in the middle of public parks.
What caused this?
"During an October 10 recreational visit to National Botanical Gardens in Harare Ambassador Chris Dell inadvertently wandered into a poorly marked military area located in the middle of the of the park,"
Makes you wonder... it was close to Mugabe's home.. but it was still a military area in the middle of a park. Makes ya wonder why it's there.. and why our ambassador chose to go there?
