Stitch up

So the USA has recognised the new honduran president, who was 'elected' in the face of brutal political repression of supporters of the legitimate president.

At the time of the coup, I assumed that US people of the ground had to be involved, as they were present at the army bases, but I didn't think that the coup had the backing of the White House. Now I realise I must have been wrong, judging from Washington's reaction.

Thank god once more for President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva of Brazil, who has vowed not to move President Zelaya from the Brazillian embassy.

We have also recently witnessed a torrent of abuse from the Guardian, acusing Cuba of human rights abuses, with no referance to the human rights abuses committed by America at Guantanamo Bay, or the effects to the US blockade. Rob Miller, secretary of the Cuba Solidarity Campaign has written a great reply that puts the right-wing little Cold-war warrior back in his place.

Is anyone in the mainstream press going to highlight the hypocracy of the United States?
