a counter-coup

Never before in the history of political conflicts in Latin America has an international body like the OAS waged war against a people who decided to rid themselves of an aspiring dictator, Manuel Zelaya Rosales. They did not do it with Trujillo of the Dominican Republic, nor with the Argentine military (which waged a dirty war against its own people). It is inconceivable that President Barak Obama and the Secretary of State of the United States, Hillary Clinton, are supporting the senseless accusations and pressures of another dictator, Hugo Chávez of Venezuela, and his ALBA satellites to reinstate in power someone who was dismissed in accordance with the laws of his own country after violating the Constitution. In Honduras there have been no coup, but a constitutional succession. It was a counter-coup that neutralized the coup started by Zelaya Rosales.
