Let’s just parse this bit by bit:
Ousted President Manuel Zelaya appealed to the Honduran military to return its loyalty to him
I don’t know about you, but the military of any nation should never be loyal to a person. Never. Under any circumstance.
I am the commander of the armed forces…
Um, not any more.
…elected by the people…
and removed by the Supreme court, Congress and the military.
…and I ask the armed forces to comply with the order to open the airport…
you don’t have the power to issue orders anymore.
Honduras' new government has vowed to arrest Zelaya for 18 alleged criminal acts including treason and failing to implement more than 80 laws approved by Congress since taking office in 2006.
Yet the international ‘community’ is declaring solidarity with the thug. Wonder why? I’m guessing that they don’t like to be reminded that they are bound by the laws of their own nation.
Despite a Supreme Court ruling, Zelaya had also pressed ahead with a referendum on whether to hold an assembly to consider changing the constitution…But instead of …trying to defeat his referendum idea at the ballot box
Really AP? He was willfully committing treason (by definition of their constitution) and they should just stand by and try to defeat him at the ‘ballot box’?
Supposedly law abiding leaders should be celebrating the bloodless removal of a lawless thug. Instead they label the action a coup and condemn the other leaders of Honduras for preventing an authoritarian prick install himself for life.
