Honduras

OK, let me see if I have this right:  an army (with the democratically-elected legislature’s approval) deposes a president for attempting to prolong his term in defiance of the constitution…and this is “anti-democratic?”

The problem here is not with the Army but with the Honduran constitution.  What sort of flimsy POS allows itself to be amended by popular vote, proposed solely by the President?  After they get things stabilized, they need to address that issue. And if in fact the referendum was extraconstitutional, why didn’t they just impeach his butt, especially considering that not even his own party was supporting him? I know that if Bam-Bam tried something like this, even with the support of a Democrat congress, I would hope and expect that the Army would step in, because that’s not how we amend our constitution.
