    Claim: Leftist leader assassinated in Honduras

    Citing a report from Mexico’s Notimex news service, the blog reports that Cesar Ham, presidential candidate and leader of the Democratic Unification of Honduras party, was killed while resisting arrest in the early hours of Sunday morning, as the Honduran military fanned out to arrest leftist leaders throughout the country, including President Manuel Zelaya and the country’s chancellor, Patricia Rodas.
    Uh oh, opposition leaders being arrested for crimes that have yet to be proven. This does not bode well for liberal Hondurians.

    This is scary indeed. Chile and Argentina both have had democratic governments toppled by right wing military regimes, followed by ruthless campaigns to eradicate leftist influences.

    I hope Honduras is not going down the same path.

    Zelaya is an ally of Chavez's, so that doesn't exactly endorse him, or any of the other Leftist leaders in Honduras as being the, "good guys".

    Chavez supports FARC, so it's not unreasonable to believe that Zelaya also supports FARC, not to mention FARC is allowed to operate in Honduras.

    What conceivable relation could that have to an action that is at its core anti-democratic? Chavez is of course also democratically elected and significantly more libertarian in nature than popularly conceived, but even that isn't directly relevant here.

    Maybe it would have been a good idea not to push through an unconstitutional referendum to ignore the limitations of the elections term you may rule. This was the reason for the military coup.

    Chavez is as democratically elected as Ahmedinejad is.

    I think the most important thing to note in all this is that PBO all but ignored the freedom movement against the Dictators in Iran, claiming that he didn't want to meddle, yet didn't midn meddling in an attempt to prop Zelaya's presidency. Doesn't take long to put two-n-two together.

    I believe there is dispute as to the constitutionality of that action, though I don't see any ethical deficiencies inherent in that proposal.

    Then post sound evidence of election fraud on Chavez's part.

    Sorry, but we are not to judge the action, the highest court in Honduras is, which stated it was unconstitutional. You can think whatever you wish, you can think that this is wrong, however you cannot ignore the independent judiciary and the parliament and claiming yourself to be democratically legitimated.
