Chavez has been driving the US nuts for quite a few years now and with his oil he beat his chest obnoxiously much to the dislike of many Americans and others who had lost a taste for him. In June, Hondurans stood up to one of his buddies, Zelaya and he has been hiding like a coward in the Brazilian embassy since causing much grief for the Brazilian president Lula de Silva.
Chavez threatened Micheletti with an invasion and Micheletti said ´bring it on... I have 7 million Hondurans eagerly waiting for you to arrive Chavez backed down and complained that it was a US backed coup. He was wrong. It wasn’t a coup at all or well yeah it was. It was a coup against ALBA and his idiocy. We couped Chavez from afar...and without touching him.
Since he messed with us his world has crashed down. He is facing 60% inflation, had to devalue his money, and cannot figure out how to get his drug trafficking through Honduras...since June 28 Honduras has been nicknamed things like the little country that could..the Mouse that Roared...etc.
We stood up for our democratic form of government and the constitution and threw out a certain dictator that loved Chavez to boot..And dared Chavez to set foot here...he didn’t dare.
Now he threatened economic chaos on Honduras that he almost succeeded at but the private sector came together to defend the country economically to prevent fall out...and they held strong. Now the table has been turned and he is the one fighting off economic chaos, his electric company is crashing...70% of Venezuela is about to lose power, and 60% inflation. And money worth nothing...well he is about to be ripped limb from limb by Venezuelans. The US just has to sit back and watch the show...in the process all of Latin America has taken a sharp turn right. So apparently what is happening here also infected Massachusetts with Brown’s victory. The voters are fed up folks. You better listen.
Chile swung right for the first time since Pinochet was removed from office. Brazil has lost its left lean as Silva is trying to recover his image for sympathizing with one of the worst dictators in the region, Hugo Chavez. ALBA has come crashing down and with it the dream of a monetary unit that would outweigh the US dollar and collapse the US economy. Had Honduras bowed to Chavez the outcome could have been a fall out that no one could have stopped instead he is reeling and most likely screeches like a mad man if anyone utters the word ´Honduras´.
A word of advice to evil socialist dictators…no hay más macho que el pueblo Catracho!
