It's really too soon to say; even if Mugabe is deposed, there's no guarantee whoever replaces him won't be just as bad or worse.

Only if the new people are pro-American.

Zimbabwe under Mugabe was an outpost of tyranny.

Only if the ones who replace Mugabe are from the opposition faction. But I can't oppose a coup against Mugabe, only be neutral towards it.

The General who has launched it is the very same general that cracked down hard on the opposition in the disputed 2008 election.

Basically Mugabe was going to give his wife Grace power and the boys club in the army said no. The tragic irony for the wife is that the very same mortality of her sponsor that would have given her power is also the reason she has lost power. Its like what happened to Jiang Qing in 1976. This is why feminists advocate independence for women, even though its easier just to snag a man.

Grace Mugabe is absolutely insane. She belongs nowhere near the levers of power.

Tentatively. It's difficult to imagine a situation in which someone worse than Mugabe takes power.
