Honduras and US Diplomacy

"The Honduran people have the right to have their constitution followed...."

This is a bit of a funny spot for me. I guess I could call myself a lifelong Democrat. And here I am endorsing and republishing the remarks of a Republican US senator. This doesn't mark a titanic shift in my political point of view. But when you see the truth, you know it. And as far as I can see, this here fella is speaking the truth.

Thanks Tom

It has nothing to do with being a Democrat or Republican. It has to do with standing up for Democracy.

Today I reluctantly decided to see news on CNN again. I have dropped the channel because it was the same as watching “telesur” aka Chavez Channel, or “TeleCuba” aka Castro Channel (not educative, not objective news, rest of the programs are so-so). Last time in telesur they said there was a blood bath in Honduras. Well, I live in the capital, Tegucigalpa, and aside from manifestations (in favor and against) twice a week we have not seen these blood rivers. Where are these blood baths they speak of? Zelaya (ex president of Honduras) said yesterday that there were children killed on the streets… wow talking about hype. Someone (like the CNN reporters still in Honduras) should say something. I can. I am telling you, there is no “guerrilla” no “paramilitares” not jet. The guerrilla is the one that Chavez is creating in Nicaragua, the one that is threatening Honduras with an invasion to set Zelaya back in office. IF Zelaya keep trying to get back in power by force then there could be a blood bath. Chavez is providing the weapons and Nicaragua the “guerrileros” (second product of exportation for Nicaragua, after coffee beans).
