  • Coup in Honduras: the US Involvement
    By Annie Fox and Ray Phillips - : July 16, 2009
    For this is the third attempt at a coup in those seven years. We all know that in this new age, the old powers that be (with the blessing of the US and the Bush administration) tried to overthrow Hugo Chavez and the Bolivarian Revolution. It failed after three days, but that was only a temporary setback. Two years later the Right tried again and they were more successful in Haiti. In the poorest country in the region the Right (with the full backing of the US and Bush) managed to do what they had failed to do in Venezuela. Jean-Bertrand Aristide was awakened in the early hours of the morning on February 28, 2004 and forced onto a plane that took him to the Central African Republic. Now we see a repeat in Honduras; once again the leader of a democratically elected government is awakened in the early morning hours and put on a plane and flown to another country.
