Actually, I haven't seen anyone regard this action as anything other than an anti-democratic coup other than the participants.
This is from tlmorg's article:Not at all. There was not a clear or apparent constitutional process for his removal even at the early stage of this dispute, let alone a provision for his violent removal and deportation. If you're concerned about constitutional violations, the forcible ousting of a democratically elected president should be of greater concern to you than a planning procedure for a nonbinding referendum. It's not clear what "dictators" you're referring to, incidentally, but in light of your previous incorporation of openly biased sources, nothing would surprise me now.
Obviously, the courts said he couldn't do it; the congress said he couldn't do it; so, they decided to kick his butt out of office. I just don't have a problem with this.Zelaya was arrested and flown to Costa Rica hours before a rogue referendum he had called in defiance of Honduras' courts and Congress. His opponents claimed the vote was an attempt to remain in power after his term ends Jan. 27.
World tells Honduras to reinstate ousted president - Yahoo! News
We're seeing more and more whose side PBO is on, so his opinion is becoming just as irrelevant as Chavez's and I'm not even going to go into how useless the UN is. But, ultimately, "the world", isn't calling for Zelaya's reinstatement.Posted by tlmorg2:Actually, Obama and the UN council have all called for his return.
And, when one reads your sig, it's easy to understand how you would be so willing to defend any Leftist leader and denounce his removal based on your own political beliefs with not supporting evidence to defend your position.That's because you evidently have a greater interest in ideological partisanship than consistent opposition to constitutional violations. You'll condemn an action so trivial as preparation for a nonbinding referendum because politically motivated individuals in the judiciary oppose it, but you'll not condemn the forcible removal and deportation of an elected head of state even though there was no clear constitutional provision for his peaceable removal.
Let's see some links supporting the suggestion of all that support. Half those countries are just as irrelevant as the UN and Venezuela.That is a factually inaccurate assertion. There has been opposition expressed to the coup by representatives of the United Nations, the Organization of American States, Paraguay, the European Union, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Germany, Guatemala, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Peru, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Conversely, I have not heard of support for the coup from any nation or government representatives.
I find it frightening how these same countries didn't support the frreedom movement in Iran, yet wanna be all hands when it comes to Honduras.
