Honduras II

Yes, let’s let the people decide. The fact that Zelaya grossly underestimated how much support his Chavista policies had in Honduras was his undoing. The fact that most Hondurans have stayed at home rather than pour out into the streets to rally around the president as they did in Venezuela shows that the majority of Hondurans don’t like Zelaya all that much. The Honduran president was removed by congressional order (and congress was voted for by the people) for undermining the separation of powers in a most Nixonian fashion. Not every leftist leader can be an Allende or an Arbenz. He was a lousy leader who played the game badly and lost.
