Wonder what Calderon & Uribe think of BO singing along with Chavez, Ortega and the Castro brothers?
Once again, we see Pres BO lining up with our enemies rather than our allies.
In Honduras, a Chavez-like president attempted to change the constitution and extend his rule.
Chavez did it in Venezuela. Why not Zelaya in Honduras?
"There was a coup all right, but it wasn't committed by the U.S. or the Honduran court.
It was committed by Zelaya himself.
He brazenly defied the law, and Hondurans overwhelmingly supported his removal (a pro-Zelaya rally Monday drew a mere 200 acolytes)."
Chavez has threatened to invade Honduras and restore Zelaya.
Of course, Chavez doesn't have the military resources to send a naval force across the Caribbean Sea and into The Gulf of Mexico.
However, he can destabilize Honduras, a small Central American nation.
Wonder what Pres Calderon of Mexico and Pres Uribe of Colombia think about Pres BO lining up with the region's # 1 thug?
Mexico and Colombia were recent targets of Chavez' meddling! Again, wonder what they think of "hope and change" down in Mexico City and Bogota these days?
As the world turns, BO seems awfully comfortable promoting a pro-Chavez agenda in Central America.
Wouldn't we better off if Pres BO and the US were promoting a "rule of law" agenda?
P.S. We agree with Ed's post:
"It’s difficult to make sense out of the foreign policy coming out of the White House under Barack Obama.
On the one hand, Obama insisted that he could not interfere with the internal politics of the “sovereign government of Iran,” refusing for days to even condemn Iran for its flagrantly violent repression of dissent.
When Honduras’ military staged a coup, though, Obama apparently had no such reticence in involving the US on behalf of deposed President Manuel Zelaya — a close ally of Hugo Chavez..."
