Honduras Coup - Day 70 - September 05, 2009

  • "The White Frog in a Negligee": Rodolfo Pastor discusses Roberto Micheletti
    By : September 05, 2009
    The maximum leader of the coup faction himself seems to have no plan for getting out of the mess he created, and is given to false claims of recognition of his government by countries that then have to disclaim him. His rhetoric of defiance ("Honduras does not need the world community") would be laughable if it were not clear he actually means it.

  • Preparing the ground for military aggression against Venezuela
    By Jutta Schmitt - : September 05, 2009
    The reasons for the deployment of US military forces on Colombian territory constitute a kind of layered rings of lies. The 'official' reason, the 'war against drugs,' makes for the necessary background from which the destabilization operations against Venezuela and the ALBA countries will be staged, whereas the unofficial reason is expressed in the US military's 'strategic studies,' in itself a set of clever distortions to justify the one and only REAL reason: the open military defense of North American interests and of the continuity of the rules of the game of globalization in the region.

    The U.S.'s non-military coup rating is especially dicey given that two of Honduras' neighbors, El Salvador and Guatemala, recently elected leftist presidents who could also find themselves in the crosshairs of their countries' overweening generals. "I think the armies and the business elites they back in those countries are watching the Obama Administration's moves on Honduras very closely," says Vicki Gass, a senior associate at the independent Washington Office on Latin America. While Gass applauds Clinton's threat to reject Honduras' November election results as a "very positive step that shows the U.S. is serious again about multilateral effort in Latin America," she fears the U.S. has "created risks in other countries" by not designating Honduras' putsch as military.
