Honduran Military moves in to protect the Constitution. Obama is outraged.

Obama is telegraphing, just as he did regarding Iran.

Big Time.

When elections become corrupted by the politicans, “constitutional” is thrown out the window. Sorry Bari. I’m not with you on this one either.

He violated the Constitution and that’s why they removed him.

Bambi’s just looking ahead and he’s scared.

He’s happy to interfere when a whole nation’s institutions stand up for their Constitution against the usurper.

Fortunately for Honduras Bozo doesn't have anything to do with it. He can say what he wants, but it isn't going to change things.

Can't meddle in Iran but he sure can with Israel and now Honduras. He is terrified our army will do the same thing to him.

"The action taken against Honduran President Manuel Zelaya violates the precepts of the Inter-American Democratic Charter and thus should be condemned by all. We call on all parties in Honduras to respect the constitutional order and the rule of law, to reaffirm their democratic vocation and to commit themselves to resolve political disputes peacefully and through dialogue. "

Honduran president wanted a referendum, to be held TODAY, to throw out the constitution, and essentially make himself, a SOROSsupported marxist moron, president-for-life.

The Army objected to that.

Obortion should be scared chitless, because he just saw prima facia evidence that it can happen and that his name is on the radar screen, and this can happen to him at any time. He is not invincible. I would think that he would be too terrified to sleep knowing full well that at any time that they wanted to, they could come and give him a free ride to Kenya.

Not only the army but the Honduran supreme court, congress and constitution.

Obozo has quite a pair to call it a coup when the only one not acting within the law is the wannabe dictator of a president.

Breaking news on Twitter is awesome. They get stuff up before Drudge. Warning, though : they tweet about every minute, so use tweetdeck and isolate them in their own group or every other twitter user you’re following will get buried.

Chavez's Russian military stockpile will pay off (100,000 Kalashnikov rifles and 15 Russian-built military helicopters).

Could Columbia be far off?

Colombia would crush Chavez in a couple of days. Colombia has US trained and battle hardened troops. Chavez will talk but he knows he can not match their firepower and expertise.
