German Militarism rearing it’s head regarding Honduras?
From Germany's Der Speigel:
In a Der Spiegel interview, ousted President Manuel Zelaya, 56, discusses the coup in his native Honduras, the lack of intervention from Washington.....
From the interview:
Zelaya: US President (Barack) Obama is sincere, but he is not acting decisively enough. He ought to pursue the coup leaders more resolutely so that such coups don't happen again.
But...but...but...but I coulda sworn that sophisticated and internationally astute Europeans like the ones who publish and edit Der Spiegel ADAMANTLY OPPOSE U.S. intervention in the affairs of poor, little inoffensive Latin American nations (such as Stalinist and Terrorist-sponsoring Cuba)???????
Now they're promoting--what?--that the U.S. send in the Marines to capture Micheletti, perhaps with the aid of a couple Panzer divisions???????
My, oh, my. How sophisticated, educated, internationally-responsible, anti-interventionist attitudes change overnight?????
Interesting to read this kow-towing to Zelaya by these "Krauts" (as my father-in-law delighted in calling calling 'em--especially in front of my mother-in-law who is first generation German!--so please stifle the accusations of racism! My wife of 30 years is half-kraut and my three offspring are one-quarter Kraut)
And for all I know, myself and many Babalusians probably have german blood. After all, German tribes--Goths, Vandals, Suevi, Alani--overan Spain after the fall of the Roman Empire and settled primarily in the Northern areas--what became Asturias, Galicia, Navarre--from where many (perhaps most) Cubans trace their heritage.
