Military leaving Mugabe!

Among other things as reported in the Economist.

This may be the straw that breaks Mugabe's back. If we can get the Zimbabwe military on the payroll, at least the young and hungry ones, we can force the older senior officials to cow tow to serious forces, blatantly, looking forward to causing a serious schism in Mugabe's power base- the military.

This is how he keeps power. The military is what keeps him going. They are the ones who conduct the raids and the looting, because they are on the take.

Break the military link to Mugabe and we break him. This is a chance for South African forces, to act swiftly and with precise measure.
