The Wages of Chavismo

The Wages of Chavismo. WSJ Editorial
The Honduran coup is a reaction to Chávez's rule by the mob.
WSJ, Jul 01, 2009

"As military 'coups' go, the one this weekend in Honduras was strangely, well, democratic. The military didn't oust President Manuel Zelaya on its own but instead followed an order of the Supreme Court. It also quickly turned power over to the president of the Honduran Congress, a man from the same party as Mr. Zelaya. The legislature and legal authorities all remain intact.

We mention these not so small details because they are being overlooked as the world, including the U.S. President, denounces tiny Honduras in a way that it never has, say, Iran."
