Honduras

I’ve more or less been on the fence regarding which side to believe more in the recent Honduran political crisis.

One of the things that stuck out to me at the time was the report that, sayz Wikipedia; “Several hundred people recruited by Zelaya, and led by Zelaya himself, went to an air force base and took possession of the referendum materials stored there, which were then guarded by the national police.”

Now it’s come out that “authorities have seized 45 computers containing certified election results for a constitutional election that never happened. The election had been scheduled for June 28, but on that day the president, Manuel Zelaya, was ousted. The ‘certified’ and detailed electronic records of the non-existent election [n.b. ‘referendum’ actually -milk] show Zelaya’s side having won overwhelmingly” link

Putting aside the fucked up culture of extreme bias you seem to get from all sides in situations like these in South American countries, this is a fantastic twist. I was more against Zelaya at first, then for, now I’m back on the fence again. I’m not going to bother to explain why [online anyway] as there’s so many issues to take into account, but christ, this is an interesting drama llama.
