Sadly, I can't see any Western Government ever removing President Mugabe, their simply isn't any money or incentive to do so.
The people will keep on suffering and nothing will change.

Hope Britain does invade, gives the somewhere to use the new chinooks which everyone has been complaining about how its horrendous they aren't being used, I would be willing to join the army to take down a cocky little, fascist git like Mugabe. Maybe the British might retake Zimbabwe and form a new empire lol

All that would need to be done is remove mugabe - he's currently in the middle of trying to rig a run off in a "disputed" election.
Johannesburg/Harare - Zimbabwe's police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena claimed Thursday that police tried to protect a group of United States diplomats from "a mob" after theirs and a British diplomatic convoy were attacked by security forces and militia north of Harare. The three US diplomats and four British officials were investigating reports of violence in rural areas when they were detained for several hours by armed police, soldiers and ruling party militiamen who threatened to assault them and burn them alive in their cars unless they got out of the vehicles, US Ambassador to Zimbabwe James McGee told CNN.
The vehicles were halted at a roadblock about 60 kilometres from Harare, on their way back from visiting the Bindura area about 80 kilometres north-east of the city.
"Police stopped them. Then war veterans and soldiers arrived, carrying arms. They were brandishing weapons and shouting at the party that they were trying to 'carry out regime change' against Mugabe," a diplomatic source said.
The Zimbabwean driver of the American vehicle was pulled out and assaulted, the source said, and the vehicles' path was blocked by a trap of spikes. Armed men slashed the US vehicle's tyres.
Bvudzijena claimed on national radio police had "rescued" the diplomats from a "mob"

Oh boy, some of you on here are being a little hypocritical...COUGH...budski....COUGH.
For some reason it would be ok and warranted to invade Zimbabwe and remove the figure head because the people would welcome it and want to be free. Hmm....sounds a little familiar like Iraq. Why would you do this?
How is Zimbabwe threatening the UK? Do you really think they could hurt the UK? Do they have WMD?
Why do you want to be the police of the world?
Zimbabwe's government has indefinitely suspended all field work by aid groups and non-governmental organisations.
Social Welfare Minister Nicholas Goche accused several of "breaching the terms and conditions of their registration", in a written notice sent to the groups.

For a start, there are a lot of Rhodesians (Zimbabweins) that are British or at the very least dual British passport holders.
Secondly it is a former British colony and its our moral right.
Thirdly, Britain WAS the best of the world policeman. Fourthly why does the US want to be the police of the world?
