how the us incited violent chaos in honduras

"Ever so slightly left-leaning, Zelaya had stepped on the toes of the entrenched Honduran oligarchy, whose members had long ago pledged allegiance to the predatory capitalism endorsed by their benefactors in the United States. Not only had Zelaya raised the monthly urban and rural minimum wages to a whopping $290 and $213, respectively, he had also shown himself to be more willing than his predecessors to listen to the complaints of impoverished communities affected by mining and other toxic operations by international corporations. All of this naturally indicated that the communist apocalypse was nigh."

2. you do realize that you are echoing obama and his sec state?

"As the Honduran right-wing and concerned gringos spun it, this was concrete proof that Zelaya was scheming to abolish the constitutional article that limited presidents to a single term and to thereby install himself as eternal dictator. Of no consequence, apparently, was that any constitutional tweaking would only take place after Zelaya had already left power. Eventually, the article in question was abolished anyway, albeit under a sufficiently ultra-rightist administration so as not to merit a peep from the guardians of democracy."

3. And as the facts say Zelaya tried to usurp the Honduran Constitution and was ordered removed by

the Honduran Supreme Court.

I understand the need to make it seem as ebil Yanquis did it, but not true

EDIT Hillary tried to break all diplomatic relations unless Zelaya was returned to office

When the Hondurans told her to fuck herself she accepted a Fait Accompli
