British put this thug in power.
The country declared itself independent (Rhodesia) without getting permission from the Crown.
They (Rhodesians) screwed themselves by giving into the fools in London.
We should force all the people in England who overthrew Rhodesia to go live in their creation.
Once they had to deal with living in this wretched country, we will see if something gets done.

The Times has learnt that the Ministry of Defence already has two contingency plans, one involving the deployment of troops into Zimbabwe.
Notice it says the MoD have TWO contingency plans. What could the second one be considering the first is probably the deployment of a special force into the area?

The UK does have less than 10K troops in Iraq, but thats not my point.
My point is that it takes that amount of troops to barely keep hold on Iraq, and the British armed forces total is 195k - and thats all services and all personnel, not just frontline troops.
See where I'm coming from now?
