More on what to do in Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwe government has asked South Africa for $1 billion to stave off economic collapse, according to this article from South Africa's Sunday Times via South African President Thabo Mbeki has till now refrained from criticizing Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe. But, in the wake of the UN's conclusion that Zimbabwe's drive against squatters created "a man-made disaster," Mbeki may have to take a stance.

In another development, the article cites an International Monetary Fund spokesman as suggesting that Zimbabwe could be kicked out of the Fund because it has fallen massively behind on its loan payments.
