Something can still be done to save the political and economic situation in Zimbabwe. ++ For this, the US, the UK, and the EU need to cut Mugabe's access to foreign financial goods and services, and the African Union and Zimbabwe's Southern neighbors must take action to deprive the government of its legitimacy. ++ South Africa in particular can and should exert pressure: neighboring chaos is destabilising the country and damaging its international image. ++ The enforcement of democracy in Zimbabwe requires tougher measures and less resignation.
