Now we learn that Zelaya (with at least some level of international support) has made his way into the Brazilian embassy that sits in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa. Riots have already begun. Considering that sitting president Roberto Micheletti is willing to step down if Zelaya agrees not to pursue a return to power, we're seeing who is the more power hungry of the two. So far, the U.S. State Department, through spokesman Ian Kelly, is urging that violence be prevented.
Help me with this one. Hillary called Zelaya's half-cocked actions "reckless" in July. Yet, ever since Zelaya was removed on June 28th, the official American stance has been to support his return to power. Now we learn that the "reckless" behavior Zelaya engaged in this past July by walking into Honduran territory has been escalated to the point that he is literally the source of unrest in the country he claims to hold so much love for.
With each passing day, Zelaya is exposing himself as the power-hungry thug and leader he was removed for being. Yet, our nation's leaders continue to support him while the leader of our State Department seems less willing to confront Zelaya the more "reckless" he becomes.
Micheletti' stalk continues to rise with me and he didn't fail to disappoint when, while talking to Reuters, he made reference to how welcome Zelaya is in Honduras by using terms that obviously referenced prison time:
Micheletti assured Zelaya that he can stay in Brazil's embassy for "five to 10 years" if he chooses. Micheletti said he has no intention of confronting Brazil or entering its embassy to go after Zelaya.Did I mention that Micheletti's stock is rising with me?
