World gang up
President Micheletti does the right thing by standing his ground, keeping calm and ignoring those who purport to reinstate Manuel Zelaya. Within two months, the Honduras people will speak up at the ballots and gangsters will have to swallow their threats.
Opinion For my readers outside Venezuela, who do not know the meaning of "cayapa," a Venezuelan idiom, I will give you the following definition by renowned Venezuelan philologist and professor Alexis Márquez Rodríguez. "The word 'cayapa' (gang up) means a group of individuals ganging up on one or more persons in disadvantage. The term applies both to the group of assailants and the action. The attack may be either physical –punches or armed- or moral. In a debate or discussion, when several individuals who share the same view or opinion lash out at somebody who is alone in his stance, it is said that they ganged up on him."
The Honduras case fits in this definition. Many countries have ganged up on the small nation to make it reverse its sovereign decision of dismissing Manuel Zelaya when he tried to take his government to the way of Chavezism-21st century communism. Two days before Zelaya's sudden removal, the Lieutenant Colonel (Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez) had started to form perceptions by claiming that a "coup" was being schemed in Honduras. This was the starting point for the governments in the region and some others outside the region to form a chorus that terms coup the decision of the public branches of the Honduras government and the Honduras society to stop the presidential office of Mr. Zelaya.
World gangsters have not pondered on the reasons for such decision. Astoundingly unreasonable, governments supposed to be serious and dependable have been involved in a campaign headed by the Venezuelan gyrfalcon, which refuses to miss the prey that escaped when he virtually caught it in complicity with the deposed president. Ignoring the sovereign right of the Honduras people to decide their own destiny, i.e., violating the sacred right to free determination enshrined both in the Charter of the Organization of American States and the Charter of the United Nations, these countries, claiming to be representatives of the international community, have even threatened not to acknowledge the results of the election for president that will be held next November 29th.
Still worse, they have collaborated and acted in complicity to support the openly criminal action taken by Zelaya when he clandestinely came in Honduras to seek refuge in the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa. One wonders about the attitude of any of these governments if a similar situation were to arise in their countries. Shame on these governments which act in solidarity with a subject charged in his country with innumerable violations to the Honduras National Constitution. Their double moral has even made them indulgent towards the actions of the Lieutenant Colonel, the Venezuelan president, who provided Zelaya with the airplane that took him to Honduras. He fuels subversion by urging Honduras troops to disavow President Micheletti and organizes rallies in front of the Brazilian embassy. President Micheletti does the right thing by standing his ground, keeping calm and ignoring those who purport to reinstate Manuel Zelaya. Within two months, the Honduras people will speak up at the ballots and gangsters will have to swallow their threats.
