    In fact the Supreme Court of Honduras with the consent of the Congress ordered the military to seize the former President and escort him out of the Country. Why? Because he was rabble rousing and tried to illegally change the Constitution of the Country.

    Honduras rejects OAS appeal to restore president - Yahoo! News

    I wonder why NONE of this was reported before. A Coup is when the Military seizes power , they never seized power, they acted under the direct orders of the Supreme Court and the Congress of Honduras. The Military was never in power. Congress replaced the President at the same time he was ousted by the COURTS and the CONGRESS.

    This was actually reported the day the supposed "coup" took place. Why Obama along with the MSM chose to side with Chavez is anybody's guess.

    I'd say that's probably a good guess. :)

    Using the hammer-and-sickle symbol for non-communists Chavez and Ortega is merely evidence of the political ignorance of this school of thought. There was lasting debate about the impeachment process for Zelaya, but the exact actions that the constitution provided for were unclear. The impropriety of forcible military removal and deportation of an elected head of state is even more apparent in that regard, especially since his "unconstitutional" actions involved an attempt to organize a nonbinding referendum, an action far too trivial to warrant such extreme retaliation.
