Using Force Against Mugabe
The calls for the use of military force against the regime of Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe are growing all the time. The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, called for that yesterday, and the Telegraph backs it up with an editorial today. I follow this with interest, since it is precisely the subject of the sequal to Death Force, called Fire Force. It looks as if the collapse of Zimbabwe is coming close to a tipping point where the country becomes a humanitarian disaster. But is there really an appetite for military intervention. I suspect a small mercenary force financed privately is still the most likely option.
