The Honduras mess

The NY Times has an article about the situation in Honduras.

In June 2009 a US supported military coup deposed the democratically elected government of Zelaya - that it considered too leftist. In November 2009 they held an election that no one believes to have been honest and that brought president Lobo to power who still rules.

Since then Honduras has gone from bad to worse with political killings, a sharp increase in drug smuggling, the highest murder rate in the world, enormous corruption and a dysfunctional judicial system.

Yet Obama is still supporting this charade.

Zelaya's left-fascist regime was not democratic. Democracy there was only a trick so it could gain power.
