Honduras Democracy

It's not hard to find out who's on the wrong side and who's on the right side. Who's on the side of democracy and who is trying to defeat it if one just does a little research.

In the case of Honduras, where their president is in exile in Costa Rica, it would appear on the outside that this is just another military coup against the people and an attempt to defeat democracy, but the exact opposite it true.

The backers of the exile president are, let see, Fidel Castro, Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chavez, and oh yes our very own Hillary Clinton.

It appears the Mr Zelaya (exiled president) was trying to make a change to the country's constitution without legal process. The courts and the legislation smelled a rat and declared that process illegal. Mr. Zelaya proceeded anyway with his dictatorship plans with a little help from his friend Hugo Chavez and the courts and the legislators call him on it. They ordered the military in to help out.

Our own state department is siding with Fidel and Hugo. Something is a miss here.

Read the article:

Honduras Defends Its Democracy

Hugo Chávez's coalition-building efforts suffered a setback yesterday when the Honduran military sent its president packing for abusing the nation's constitution.

It seems that President Mel Zelaya miscalculated when he tried to emulate the success of his good friend Hugo in reshaping the Honduran Constitution to his liking.

But Honduras is not out of the Venezuelan woods yet. Yesterday the Central American country was being pressured to restore the authoritarian Mr. Zelaya by the likes of Fidel Castro, Daniel Ortega, Hillary Clinton and, of course, Hugo himself. The Organization of American States, having ignored Mr. Zelaya's abuses, also wants him back in power. It will be a miracle if Honduran patriots can hold their ground.
