Finally the Honduran Supreme Court said he was out of control and told the Army to arrest him. Think about it. Those people in the black robes staging a "coup." Well, it wasn't a coup.
But, the US blunders ahead (from The Washington Times):
A U.S. State Department official told the Reuters news agency on Thursday that department staff have recommended that the ouster of Mr. Zelaya formally be declared a "military coup," which could deprive Honduras of millions of dollars in aid beyond about $18 million already suspended.Are we concerned about what President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela says?
Here is what one person, not President Hugo Chávez said recently:
This is just hair-pulling dumb. Dumbness following dumbness. Be outraged; rattle the trees, sponsor negotiation. But cutting off further aid? More sanctions? Wonder what the Hondurans think of their long-time ally now? Wonder what Central America thinks?No, this is not Kad Barma—not the use of capital letters. This is a person used to teach strategy at one of our war colleges here in the US.
Latin America is so important to the United States and is treated as such a backwater. It is sad.
