Zelaya's hypocrisy

"The same critics who say the US has not intervened in Honduras are the same people who say we are always intervening and Yankees need to get out of Latin America," [U.S. President Barack Obama] said, accusing such opponents of "hypocrisy."

"You can't have it both ways," he told reporters after the summit in the Mexican city of Guadalajara, adding that Washington had done everything it could since Zelaya was ousted in a coup in June.

Well, "everything it could" is debatable, but why should the U.S. be in any hurry to help reinstall a leftist, Hugo Chavez puppet who has been bitterly critical of its policies? Zelaya chose the wrong friends. Now he's realizing those "friends" don't have anything near the influence and clout that the United States has. Sounds like you're S.O.L., SOLaya.
