Military actions for humanitarian purpose rarely "gain" anything.

Sitting on your hands is a bigger crime than the perpetrators.
So they gain nothing. What about the lives of all the South Africans who would die fighting? Don't they matter?

The thing you're missing is that nations exist to serve their own, not some I'll defined greater good. The South African government is responsible for protecting South Africa, that's all. Zimbabwe is not their problem. Zimbabwe is Zimbabwe's problem and no one else's.
