HONDURAS AND THE POLITICAL USES OF THE DRUG WAR

But which charges stick against which leaders in the US media appears to have more to do with politics than fact.

Abstentionism Wins the Honduran Coup-Regime Elections! Altering the Figures Can’t Alter the Facts.
12/4/2009.- The National U.S. Committee in Solidarity with the People of Honduras declared that an abstention rate of 62% (only 38% voted) in the Coup regime’s elections on November 29 has been calculated by Honduran Congressperson Elvia Argentina Valle, using the total of votes (1.7 million) reported as of 9 p.m. on election day by the military-controlled Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) and the number of registered voters officially reported by the TSE prior to the elections (4.6 million).

Those bogus figures simply cannot stand up to serious scrutiny.

United States' Intervention in Honduras: Then & Now
11/16/2009 - Given that we are aware of the history of this topic, it would be irrational to think that US involvement in the Honduran coup comes in the interest of Honduran democracy, insofar as that phrase implies governance by, of, & for the people. The architect of the US constitution, James Madison, was inspired by the need to create a Magna Carta that would prevent the redistribution of wealth from the haves to the have-nots. Democracy was something of a necessary evil that needed to be limited, thus was born "representative democracy," or governance by, of, & for the oligarchy. Since 1898, in the name of this democracy, the United States has overturned over forty governments in the countries that form Latin America. Some were dictators, others were elected democrats, but they were all guilty of challenging North American corporate interests to a lesser or greater degree.

Rerun in Honduras: Coup pretext recycled from Brazil ’64
09/11/2009 - The pretext for the Honduran coup d’état is nothing new. In a remarkable replay, bogus charges that the corporate media in the U.S. and Europe have repeated endlessly without attempting to substantiate—that Honduran president Manuel Zelaya sought to amend the country’s constitution to run for another term—are virtually identical to the sham justification for the 1964 coup against Brazilian president João Goulart.
