For good reason, Honduras is called the murder capital of the world. Independent journalists are killed. So are protesters for democratic change.
After its calamitous January 2010 earthquake, Obama militarized Haiti, plundered it freely, opposed Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s return, orchestrated the nation’s rigged elections, and prohibited the emergence of democracy.
On September 30, 2010, his attempt to oust Ecuador’s Rafael Correa failed. Coup plotters shut down airports, blocked highways, burned tires, and roughed up the president.
They also took over an airbase, parliament, and Quito streets. They acted on the pretext of a law restructuring police benefits. Ignored was that Correa doubled their wages.
Obama’s fingerprints were all over the scheme to oust a business-friendly leader who fell short of a neoliberal perfection.
If Correa grants Julian Assange amnesty, perhaps his long knives won’t fail next time.
In the interim, he added another democrat to his trophy collection. On June 22, he plunged a dagger into Paraguayan democracy. Parliamentary impeachment was his weapon of choice.
