Ousted president calls for Honduras insurrection
AP via Breitbart ^ | July 15, 2009 | N/A

Posted on 07/15/2009 12:07:21 AM PDT by Jet Jaguar

Deposed Honduran leader Manuel Zelaya has called for a popular insurrection in his country so he can be returned to power after soldiers removed him at gunpoint in June. "The Honduran people have the right to insurrection," said Zelaya, speaking in the neighboring Central American country of Guatemala.

Insurrection is a legitimate democratic right "when faced with a usurping government and a coup-supporting military," he added, urging his supporters in Honduras to strike, march and engage in civil disobedience because that is "a necessary process when the democratic order of a country is disrupted.

I want to tell you to not leave the streets, that is the only space that they have not taken from us," he told a news conference alongside Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom.

Zelaya has issued an ultimatum to the interim government led by Roberto Micheletti that it must relinquish power within the week and demanding his own immediate restitution.

But in the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa, acting foreign minister Carlos Lopez said that authorities were still committed to talks aimed at finding a peaceful resolution with Zelaya on Friday in San Jose, mediated by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias.

"We are not issuing threats," said Lopez, who emphasized that Micheletti's government was in control and the country was at peace.

"We removed the curfew and the government has complete control of the territory."

Leaders of the new Honduran regime, who have not been recognized by the international community, refuse to describe their move as a coup d'etat.

Honduras has become increasingly isolated by its neighbors, and the coup was roundly condemned by the United States.

And a usurping president too, Sir!

I wish the Hondurans well, and apologize for the conduct of our despicable marxist president regarding their fate. Regarding insurrections, my mind is on one elsewhere. Lady Liberty, like Kitty Genovese lies brutalized, crying in the dark outside our windows.......

Notice the slant here. It's a "regime" . A bunch of Marxists are upset the rule of law was followed. Of course the rule of law part is not mentioned.

What should OUR military do if ordered by the putative CIC to go to Honduras to re-install a Marxist thug?

Obviously, they should refuse to obey.

One hopes that those who refuse to obey will be the generals, not a handful of grunts.

This is a loathesome piece of garbage propaganda from the America hating communists at AP.

When it’s time to hang traitors and seditionists, AP has earned a place at the front of the line.

Well! Let's see if Zero agrees that "the people have a right to insurrection when the government has become irresponsible and unresponsive". This could get interesting.

They must be doing something right:

“Honduras has become increasingly isolated by its neighbors, and the coup was roundly condemned by the United States.”

oh yes we have the right of insurrection, but to kill Zelaya for the $ 204,000,000 lost by the state telephone company. Also because of the $ 2.5 million stealed of the central bank to pay for that ilegality. and now he threatens to come back.

This piece illustrates the historisity of the fact that a deposed leader must be killed, not exiled.

Zeyala is setting the stage for a sandinista style war. Sitting with Arias to "listen not discuss" was a ploy to accomplish two things...

1. Appear to be a reasonable player in the eyes of the world.

2. Buy time needed to put things in place on the ground both inside Honduras and across the border in Nicaragua.

Chavez, ortega and the Castros will provide the muscle to get things rolling.

Obama will supply the silence and will continue to freeze all US assistance to Honduras.

The marxist led OAS will make ineffective noise about hemisperal peace and the UN will join the chorus.

Asymmetrical warfare favors the insurgency in the sense that conventional wisdom holds that the Government must have at least a 10:1 numbers superiority just to stay even. The government must also have the resources to fight what could likely become a decade-long war. Honduras relies on Washington for things military. Where will they turn for re-supply? For intel?

Obama & Hillary, coupled with the communist dictatorships (Russian armed) of Castro, Ortega & Hugo, plus despicable Marxist elitist worms such as Oscar Arias (who is harbouring leftist Zelaya) are all instigating a communist insurrection against the conservative Honduran government of President Roberto Micheletti (shown below with supporters).

How will Obama state he is not 'very publicly meddling' in the affairs of Honduras?

Tens of thousands of Hondurans demonstrated in support of President Micheletti and the military this week & against Hugo Chavez-stooge Manuel Zelaya

Obama's leftist agenda could care less about the citizens of Honduras wanting a free nation -- not a communist dictatorship.

Zelaya is a lost cause with or without Barry support. I mean geez, can’t we all see and acknowledge the massive Hondurian support for the return of Zelaya to power? =.=

thanks for your support, we need it a lot.

We need truth to be known.

BTW a CID Gallup poll recently showed our conservative candidate leading.
If he wins, the republican that wins the next US election (I hope a rep. could win!) will have a close ally on our conservative government(if we win)

Venezuelan Navy “careful” about Honduras

Catia La Mar, Vargas .- The new commander of the Bolivarian Navy, Admiral Carlos Máximo Aniasi Turchi called the marine component and the Venezuelan people in general to “be vigilant about what happened on the coup in Honduras, noting that there may in specifying a formula laboratory to overthrow governments in the region. “

The words of Admiral Carlos Maximum Turchia Aniasi were issued during the act of transfer of command d, made this Tuesday.

‘We must be vigilant. What happened in Venezuela in April 2002 is a fundamental difference with what happened in Honduras, because our Commander in Chief (President Hugo Chávez) is not out of the country, while at the President Manuel Zelaya yes.

We need to disentangle these schemes. Is it coincidence ‘Or what is happening there is a laboratory in the search for the perfect formula to be applied against countries where governments do not obey the interests of the powerful, “said Turchi Aniasi.

In this sense, the new head of the Navy promised that his administration will move ahead strongly in building socialism and to serve the people, while adding that no weapons will be used against the latter but to safeguard the homeland.

The words of the officer were issued during the act of transfer of command of the General Command of the Bolivarian Navy, made this Tuesday at the Naval School of Venezuela Admiral Sebastian Francisco de Miranda Rodriguez, located in the so-called Plateau Mamo, in Catia La Mar , Vargas state, where the admiral Zahím Quintana Castro handed over the post of commanding general, after two years of exercise.

He highlighted the increase in operational capability of the Navy through the exchange of components with counterparts in other countries such as Russia, the Netherlands Antilles, Brazil and Colombia. From the Bolivarian News Agency
