For the first time in history the United States government is siding with Marxist leaders Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, Raul Castro and Evo Morales against the pro-democratic Honduran government of Roberto Micheletti.
The Honduran Congress and Supreme Court along with the military ousted corrupt Leftist President Manuel Zelaya from power after his illegal moves to secure his presidential post as a lifetime position. Zelaya was, of course, supported by regional Marxists in Venezuela, Bolivia, and Cuba. The Honduran government appointed Roberto Micheletti president until the planned elections in November. At that time he will turn over control to the democratically elected successor. Now, the Obama government is saying they will not recognize the winner of the November election.
But, the Hondurans are fighting back against the misguided Obama administration foreign policy. They announced that they will arrest the corrupt Zelaya if he tries to set foot on Honduran soil. The leftist thug Zelaya is currently hiding out in the Brazilian Embassy in Honduras.
