Meanwhile, Back In Honduras...

Two military battalions stationed along the north coast have turned against the coup, and the regime is cracking down on the independent press.

Certainly sounds like the actions of a group just trying to defend the Constitution, doesn't it? (insert eye roll here)

"It would be a terrible precedent if we start moving backwards into the era in which we are seeing military coups as a means of political transition rather than democratic elections," he added. "The region has made enormous progress over the last 20 years in establishing democratic traditions. ... We don't want to go back to a dark past."

I'm sure, just like on Iran, that merely being historically aware and completely right won't be enough for some people.

Huh, weird. I almost have this feeling of deja vu...

"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee said at a Seattle fundraiser Sunday, "it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said, including the Middle East and Russia as possibilities, "and he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."

Oh that wacky Joe, always saying crazy shit.
