The generals move came at the unanimous--yes unanimous--behest of a congress outraged by Zelaya's not-particularly-subtle attempts to extend his hold on power indefinitely. It followed a series of clearly unconstitutional moves on Zelaya's part, including his attempt to unilaterally remove the chief of the army, which, according to Honduras's Constitution, can only be done by a congressional super-majority. And congress's request had been seconded by the nation's Supreme Court, which is sworn to uphold a constitution that explicitly makes the act of "inciting, promoting or backing the continuation in power or re-election of the President of the Republic" punishable with the loss of Honduran citizenship.
I tell you it hasn't been easy to find the real story behind Zelaya's departure. Obama's State Run Media hasn't been telling the truth about the situation in Honduras. They are either covering up Pres Obama's complete ignorance about Honduras or more likely covering up Obama's Marxism. While Pres Obama joins with his buddies in claiming that Zelaya was the victim of a military coup, the Hondurans beg to differ. Pres. Obama wants to hide the fact that the military was acting by a court order and that the Congress had asserted itself to protect the constitution.
Finally, I want to remind everyone that this was not a military coup, this was the arrest and destitution of a criminal president, with the help of the military. Proof that it is not a coup, is that as of this moment we already have the Constitutional State of Right re-established, with a new president, and new cabinet. Let us Hondurans be, we have already defenestrated what was causing us such stress, division and unrest, and we will reunite ourselves, to again perform our right of suffrage in 5 months. This is what we want. We ask the international community to take a closer look of our situation, and not allow other states such as Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and Ecuador, to interfere with what we have chosen. We, the people of Honduras, have chosen: that is Democracy.
Pres. Obama, Bugger Off! Leave the people of Honduras alone!
