    Why is the Obama administration backing the return to power of Zalaya. He is a leftist and buddy with Hugo Chavez. The people in Honduras do not want him. His only supporters are Obama, Hilary, and Hugo. I thought we tried to stop Communism in Central America, not promote it. They should stay out of it, and leave him in exile.

    I dare say the Bush administration would have adopted the same position. This guy was a jerk, tried an failed to subvert the Honduran constitution, but he was democratically elected and was still in His elected term. But the military made him a martyr by over throwing him. The administration had little choice but to support his restoration to power. He was not popular with a majority of the people of Honduras and would not have been reelected, but the military blew it.

    Nobama doesn't want a precedent set where the people of the USA just might do the same thing!

    zelaya was democratically elected, he chose not to follow their constitution and then he was democratically removed. We should follow by their example. Ed

    I worked down in Honduras about 5 years ago .... scarey is an understatement. The machette is the common side arm but just about everyone with money packs and has a couple body guards. Very violent place, wouldn't want to go there today.

    The US needs to stay out of this one for sure.

    "He was not popular with a majority of the people of Honduras and would not have been reelected, but the military blew it."

    I doubt if it's that simple. Chavez was voted out of office years ago but hasn't left yet. And Lord Soetoro has been down there kissing his ring, how cozy.

    Also, supporting "arseholes" would always make more sense than supporting communists, unless you were one.

    It's all going left down there, China is pouring money in there like waterfalls, and I'm sure they will have a bigger presence in the future.

    The conflict of the future may well be Communism vs Islam.
