Yankee Imperialism (and Idiocy)
"We don't recognize Roberto Micheletti as the president of Honduras...
This is the same State Department that in Jan. 7, 1959 gave official benediction to the Castro Gov. in record time, giving it official diplomatic recognition before Castro had even entered Havana!! It set a new record for such diplomatic benediction by the U.S. Then the U.S. rolled out the red carpet for Castro: meetings with V Pres Nixon, National Press Club, Harvard, etc. etc.....
President Micheletti is a fine, decent, patriotic and democratic (small d) gentleman whom I met last week and interviewed for over an hour. He stressed his warm feelings towards the U.S. and broke into a HUGE smile when I mentioned Ronald Reagan.
Among his other big plans, Zelaya was preparing to boot out U.S. personnel from our most important military base in the Western Hemisphere at Palmerola Honduras and turn it over to his Narco-traficking chum, Hugo Chavez. I was shown pretty convincing proof.
"To be America's enemy might be dangerous" famously quipped Henry Kissinger, "but to be her ally is fatal."
Welcome to the club, President Micheletti.....and please don't blame me. I voted Republican.
