"The military in Honduras has only 7,000 men. If we were to take up arms, we would quickly drive away those few soldiers. But we want to unseat the regime in a peaceful and honorable way..There should be [a trial of the coupmakers] to discourage copycats"

I am so glad to see this. The US had to let Central and South America grow and resolve their own issues.

You're welcome, amig@s : )

However, please read the article, or the other articles that I posted about the coup in Honduras. That way, you will learn that, despite token superficial U.S. government actions against the coup regime, the U.S. government is maintaining most of its military and economic cooperation with the brutal and oppressive coup regime, against the will of the people (who have been rising up against the coup regime for over a month). This U.S. cooperation enables the coup regime to continue in power, against the will of the Honduran people. Please end U.S. support for coups and the capitalist class in Third World countries.

Thanks you, Simon. And, yes, the US has a way of supporting the wrong side...over and over and over again. Guess they must like them.

You're very welcome, Amena : )
Ah, yes, well, the domestic and international politics of every capitalist country is dominated by its capitalist class - and so every country does whatever capitalist abuses (for corporate profit) that they are powerful enough to do. The USA is more powerful, so it does more of it.

And the solution is for us working class people to take over our governments (which are currently controlled by the capitalist class), by building and supporting genuine working class political parties, engaging in civil disobedience when necessary, and so on. This is what the people of Venezuela have been doing since the 1990s, and their peaceful democratic socialist revolution is succeeding. : )
