Britain to Invade Zimbabwe
Reuters reports that the Mugabe regime in Harare is plotting to invade Zimbabwe. Oh, and the cholera outbreak afflicting the country is part of a plot to soften up the country before sending soldiers in. I was interested to see that because part of the plot of Fire Force, the sequel to Death Force, is that the President of Zimbabwe will use the threat of foreign soldiers interfering in the country, to bolster his regime. It's pretty obvious stuff really. Dictatorships usually do that. But it is still gratifying to see it coming true. The plot of the book feels more and more realistic all the time.
