    I think the planned removal of Robert Mugabe and resulting crisis is from outside Zimbabwe. We should look closer to home.

    So just who could be to blame?

    The west is obsessed with regime change and causing chaos usually the vacuum is filled with violent jihadists groups. Could it be the EU or ISIS to blame for this trouble in Zimbabwe?

    Daesh is being forced out of Syria and Iraq and if Zimbabwe is in chaos they could start transporting their foreign fighters to Zimbabwe.

    Most likely possibility.
    The evidence of this is that Mugabe and Col Gaddaffi were both friends. Gaddaffi was murdered by jihadists that would later become ISIS.
    Daesh wants to eliminate any allies to Col Gaddaffi as they could support and aid a resurgence of the Libyan peoples Jamarhiyah. So getting rid of Mugabes regime kills two birds with one stone. Zimbabwe can’t interfere in Libya and ISIS gets to cause war in Zimbabwe.

    Hopefully Russia will come to Mr Mugabes aid.

    Theres no connection between ISIS and Zimbabwe. They're on the other sides of the continent too.

    This was brought about because Mugabe wanted to put his wife as the vice president after sacking Mnangagwa and trying to put his wife in power, which is nepotism and extending the Mugabe family's rule over zimbabwe after they've crippled the economy and ruined the country.

    Im glad they've stood up, in fact they should have just assassinated the terrorist.

    ISIS in many parts of Africa especially from Somalia and also Kenya which is mid way down Africa and just a few hundred miles from Zimbabwe. A lot of the land in that part of Africa is open Savannah which could allow easy tank access from Kenya and Somalia. There is also a lot of ISIS members who could be transported to this area after they leave Syria, by land or sea. Somali jihadist pirates control much of the east coast of Africa from the Arabian Sea downwards who’ve hijacked everything from private yaughts to supertankers and aircraft carriers.

    It's not in ISIS strategic interests to cross international borders like that when their taking such huge losses. They're getting pummelled by drones, armies and the russian air force, it would make no sense to go to zimbabwe. Zimbabwe also has a strong standing army who'll probably **** them up if they even dared.

    You really seem to be overestimating ISIS' strength. Im sure theyll be flattered their propaganda is getting to people

    A few hundred miles? It’s around 900 Miles: i don’t think that is a few hundred.

    The Iraqi Army was equipt with modern US tanks etc and US trained troops who they ran away scared as Daesh advanced in 2014. Also Daesh has crossed international borders such as the Turkish border and Syrian and Iraqi border which they declared as no longer existing. There is also many Syrian and Iraqi airforce aircraft that ended up in the hands of Daesh when they occupied various airbases.

    Secondly despite their name most ISIS members were not even from Iraq or Syria, many were from places like Tunisia, France, Philippines Czech Republic, Libya, Pakistan etc. They just travelled to Syria and collected there.

    You must think the world is like a massive call of duty game if you think ISIS planned a coup in Zimbabwe and took it over.
