Faultines, an Al Jazeera English program, went to Honduras to show report on the one hundred days since the Honduran president was removed by a coup.
Writes Avi Lewis who hosts the program:
“The coup regime in Honduras is winning. Tepid pressure from the Obama administration is making it easy for the de facto government to run out the clock until the highly compromised elections in just five weeks. Whether or not international observers bless that vote, a new government will take power in Honduras and declare the stain of the coup removed, democracy restored. Absent the kind of meaningful sanctions Washington has so far been unwilling to impose, the status quo will triumph: the backers of the coup will go unpunished.”
Coincidentally, this morning BBC, The Guardian, The Independent all reported that “an agreement has been reached that will see Zelaya return to office, through a US-sponsored deal.” How can the deal be fair if the US is behind it, they already admitted funding the opposition to Zelaya?
