Invasion of Zimbabwe?

A cholera epidemic in Zimbabwe’s capitol Harare that has killed at least 575 people is inspiring more paranoia from the insular Mugabe regime. Increasingly strident rhetoric from world leaders about the need for Mr. Mugabe to part-way s with the leadership of Zimbabwe has resulted in accusations coming from that government that Britain and other Western nations are plotting to invade Zimbabwe, according to a state-run newspaper via Reuters.

A British invasion seems unlikely, though, if a suitable replacement exists within the Zimbabwe general staff and has expressed an interest in taking over Zimbabwe, a coup might be forthcoming. Such a move would certainly be welcomed by the West and likely the long suffering people of Zimbabwe.
