Honduras update

Here is another good summary of the Honduras situation with some historical perspective by Benjamin Dangl, editor of TowardFreedom.com.

On early Sunday morning, approximately 100 soldiers entered the home of the left-leaning [President Manuel] Zelaya, forcefully removed him and, while he was still in his pajamas, ushered him on to a plane to Costa Rica. The tension that led to the coup involved a struggle for power between left and right political factions in the country. Besides the brutal challenges facing the Honduran people, this political crisis is a test for regional solidarity and Washington-Latin American relations.
