Obama says coup in Honduras is illegal

It takes Obama days to speak out against the Iranian oppression and probably only does so after the backlash, but he finds no issue speaking out immediately to support a person who wanted to change their constitution so he could run for more terms than allowed.

Some notes on the Manuel Zelaya:
  • Alliance with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. (Source)
  • Zelaya's Honduras is a member of Alba, a coalition of leftist Latin American countries that includes Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador and Nicaragua and which is led by Chavez. (Source)
  • On May 24, 2007, ordered 10 2-hour cadenas (mandatory government broadcasts) on all television and radio stations, "to counteract the misinformation of the news media." (Source)
  • “The capitalist system is the most repugnant conception of justice that human beings can harbor.” (Source)

"If we were able to get to a ... status quo that returned to the rule of law and constitutional order within a relatively short period of time, I think that would be a good outcome," Clinton said.

What if the status quo is not what the people want? What famous quote comes to mind...

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."
