We have US and International Media and the the Truth






The ineternational media and the US media loves to put their spin on things given whichever country it is and I love how the international community thinks they know what is good for us or what we want without actually asking the people what they want.

The US state department has basically said they don´t care what our constitution said or that Zelaya violated the law,....they recognize he did...but they don´t care.  I wonder would they feel so inclined if it was one of their presidents threatening to overthrow the government in a self instilled coup by their president to wrestle power, disolve congress, and stuff ballot boxes that were prepared by foreign governments such as Venezuela when it is illegal for them to involve themselves in our affairs? The US has said they think it is an internal situation for Honduras to resolve but yet they think it is ok to try to pressure us to do their bidding and to be damned with what we want or feel or think...

The community hates him, we don´t want him, and we are even more frustrated about the lies being perpetuated by the media in the international community while our own people and local media is being completely disregarded...what happened to respect for the law?

What happened to our sovereignty as a nation and our right to remove a  corrupt leader? The US condemns us for not doing anything about corruption and then we do they also condemn us? That is sort of a be damned or be damned situation....

The above pictures are pictures of the protests leading up to the removal of Zelaya and they were people against Zelaya marching peacefully.  Numbers ranged from 5,000 at some cities to 100,000 in San Pedro Sula.  

Later I will take the time to translate some of the comments by the community about this.

I have read the conference call, so I get your point of reference... but..to answer your own question, what do you think the US just went through with the previous administration? The difference here is that the other government institutions took action rather than letting the President get away with total impunity. There are plenty of mistakes made by many parties and enough finger pointing opportunities to last until the next unconscionable act occurs, but in time blood pressures will lower and, this is key, as long as no one has gotten killed in this transference of governance, you may actually be witnessing exactly what the "free" world hopes for. Against all odds, history and abundant rhetoric from all sides, that is a miracle in itself.

Oh they tried to stop him, everyone did. He was advised time and time again over the past year of following the law and the constitution. It is too bad it came to this, but it did and he only has himself to blame.
