I do like the attitude of the head of the army.

Theyre sitting this one out, the army is apolitical, government handover is a political matter so if anything important happens him and the rest of the lads aren't involved, don't want to be involved and if they are needed for anything they're probably in a bar watching the free show!

This does not seem like the best approach. Neighboring states frequently (or usually) have differing interests and objectives. Letting someone else's army onto your territory is a recipe for serving someone's interests other than yours.

Well, these three nations are doing so as a part of the West African branch of the African Union, which has done this type of thing before with success.

Is it an invasion? They have been invited by the internationally recognised, democratically elected president of the country to support his administration.

Technically it's an invasion, as the rulers right now are his opponents WHO are right now the government, regardless of whether or not they are internationally recongised or democratically elected.
