In a welcome turn of events, the US has changed their official position on Honduras.
Took them awhile, but at least they came around. They've called Zelaya's actions provocative and have pointedly not called on the Honduran Gov't to reinstate Mel Zelaya.
Although there are many other soft commie gov'ts still calling for his return, we've left that comapany and are now on the right side of this situation.
Honduras has won. They have stood up to the world and in my humble opinion have shamed us into doing the right thing. At least we stepped up to the plate and are doing the right thing.
- The Obama administration has backed away from its call to restore ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya to power and instead put the onus on him for taking “provocative actions” that polarized his country and led to his overthrow on June 28.The new position was contained in a letter this week to Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., that also rejected calls by some of Zelaya’s backers to impose harsh economic sanctions against Honduras.While condemning the ouster, the letter pointedly failed to call for Zelaya’s return.
Diplomacy: In a quiet victory for a tiny democracy, U.S. buttinskies have stopped trying to restore a dictator to power in South America. Tiny Honduras is winning its fight for freedom.
There is hope yet for our friends in Honduras.
