CR Talks Continue, Mel's Return in Doubt

Zelaya's call for returning himself to power, while saying he would not serve with any "coup supporter," would allow him to be the very dictator he was trying to be in the first place.

Arias claims he would not lead the Military, but that would be a month away.

The call for granting amnesty for "all political crimes committed before and after the June 28 coup," would absolve Zelaya of any prosecution for his crimes.

Zelaya's own words calling for civil war and setting up a parallel government to "lead the final battle against coup leaders" should be a wake up call to the world.

Honduras just may be the world's last stand for freedom.

"Honduras just may be the world's last stand for freedom."

This is probably absolutely true, as that small but proud nation stands up for its constitution, its democratic institutions and the rule of law.

There is no doubt, whatsoever, as you note that Zelaya would use a return to power to foment rebellion and impose tyranny, with the aid of Chavez and Castro.

I will post this evening Micheletti's delegation first counter point to Zelaya returning.

Essentially he would return as a common citizen and be afforded a fair and decent trail for the crimes he has perpetuated, but NEVER as President!!!!
