HondurasElizabeth Dickinson gives us part of the story on American supporters of the Honoduran coup in Who's Lobbying for the Coup? Foreign Policy Online 08/04/09. What's missing from this is any notion that the rest of Latin American has lined up solidly behind the outsted elected President Manuel Zelaya. much less why:
With the U.S. Congress split over which side to favor, the crisis in Honduras looks no closer to resolution; Zelaya remains camped on the border between Nicaragua and Honduras, talks being mediated by Costa Rica's President Oscar Arias seem to have stalled, and no one is sure which way things will turn next. What's clear is that what Washington does next will have an impact.Dickinson makes it sound like the only players involved are factions within the US government.
