Why no Zimbabwe invasion?

Things like this anger me so much, so apologies in advance if I rant a bit.

Why is the world this time around using (completely ineffective) diplomacy to deal with a dictator?

The coalition were all keen to seen Saddam ousted from Iraq, yet no military action is even discussed when Mugabe is concerned.

Is it because he is not a threat to the outside world? What about the countless people who are suffering under him in his nation. Don't they deserve freedom?

Or is it because there is nothing worth plundering in his country? No oil so no invasion?

It seems to me that 'liberating' oppressed people is a very conditional thing.

Precisely so -- no oil, no invasion.

Most of what the elites of the developed West have been about is finding ways to kill black Africans. They will accomplish far more letting Zimbabwe dissolve into a massive blood-letting than by military invasion/intervention.

Yup, so true. Those evil blue eyed devils! Always sending over food aid, free medicines, worrying about their AIDS crisis and all that. The African people are rapidly dwindling away to NOTHING because of all that white intervention!

In the case of Zimbabwe the government got even with those evil white farmers that were busy producing tons of food and feeding the populace, they saw through that plot and seized the farmland so they could give it to black Africans with no clue that can't/won't farm it! Now they are starving and depending on foreign aid, but at least they don't have white people using their land anymore!

Something is in the pipeline from the UK. Can't say what, but things are being discussed.

Foreign Sec. says that they won't recognise Mugabe's legitimacy....

Opposition parties calling for intervention....

MoD has 2 plans for Zimbabwe drawn up and ready to go...

Watch this space, the Empire will strike back....

Good to hear.

I just feel so sorry for the people of Zimbabwe and although a war would be costly and painful, it may finally allow them to have the freedom they deserve.

Hell, they voted the guy out so he simply ignores it. If that is not reason enough to anger the world into action, what is? Waiting until mass graves start appearing?

Perhaps we need a new branch of the military devoted to perpetual babysitting. Lobby congress and then enlist.

Bobby The Mug has had his Knighthood yanked by HRM. PM Brown says he's no longer "the legit leader of Zimbabwe". CDN DFA Minister Emerson is due to make a statement to catch the evening news cycle.
