Americans are free to disagree with the law but not to disobey it. For a government of laws and not of men, no man, however prominent and powerful, no mob, however, unruly or boisterous, is entitled to defy a court of law. If this country should ever reach the point where any man or group of men, by force or threat of force, could long defy the commands of our courts and our Constitution, then no law would stand free from doubt, no judge would be sure of his writ and no citizen would be safe from his neighbors.
- President John F. Kennedy, September 1962
Manuel Zelaya defied Honduran courts and he defied our Constitution. People don't change. If given another chance he will do it again (especially if he's being pressured by Hugo Chavez). There is now way he can be allowed back in the Presidency. The risk is too great. Hugo Chavez must be denied even a toehold on Honduras.
