The war crimes of Robert Mugabe: The United Nations must act

IF World War II history has taught us anything, it is that the crimes of repressive and fascist governments will be catalogued and adjudicated after those governments have been removed, whether those governments like it or not, and Zimbabwe is no exception.
The rot in Zimbabwe did not happen over night but is the  culmination of decades of repressive and systemic misrule. The United Nations Security council must invoke Article 39 powers to evaluate the current situation in todays Zimbabwe.
Article 39 of the UN Charter reads in pertinent part:
The Security Council shall determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression and shall make recommendations, or decide what measures shall be taken in accordance with Articles 41 and 42, to maintain or restore international peace and security.
