    Ousted Honduran president issues talks ultimatum

    Ousted Honduran president issues talks ultimatum | International | Reuters

    TEGUCIGALPA/MANAGUA (Reuters) - Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya warned on Monday he will deem mediation talks over the country's political crisis "failed" unless he is reinstated at the next meeting, likely this weekend.

    Mediator Costa Rica said on Monday it may call Honduras' interim government and Zelaya's negotiators within eight days for fresh talks. One of Zelaya's negotiators, Milton Jimenez, said the next round would be held on Saturday or Sunday.

    The talks began last week and stopped after two days, making scant progress.
    ================================================== ==========

    I cannot for the life of me figure out why any Democratic country wants to interfere with the decision reached by the Honduran Supreme Court to remove Zelaya for attempting to usurp that countries Constitution. The Court determined from what I understand that he was attempting to use the military in an illegal manner to forcibly remove the Supreme Court and turn the Nation into a Dictatorship virtually over night with himself as the only law and power in the land with the military at his disposal to crush any opposition.
    The big surprise here is Obama's open support of Zeleya in opposition to the Honduran Constitution as stated by the Supreme court.
    This has become serious with the threat of war in the air for neighboring nations.
    The last thing we need it to become involved in such a conflict.

    Seeing he was basically treated like a traitor and exiled he is in no position to give an ultimatum to his former country.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
