President Zelaya has returned to honduras & is in the Brazilian Embassy

Back when Michael Jackson died a military-industrial-corporate coup d'etat began in honduras with collusion of a section of the Pentagon, pharmaceutical corporations, Honduran judges & transnational lobbies. The coup resulted in the exile of the legitimate Honduran president, flown out of his state in his pyjamas to Costa Rica, whose leader would later try without success to broker a 7 point agreement. The usurpation of Zelaya took on greater significance as geopolitical balances changed in the Latin American hemisphere. President Zelaya has now returned to the capital of his country with 4 others & is in residence in the Brazilian diplomatic compound as an honoured guest afforded not only ferrero rocher whenever he wants but also the more meaningful political and military protection of Latin America's pre-eminent power, Brazil. Hugo Chavez has described how Zelaya and his team had passed through honduras, incognito, braving their lives to take up their present position in Brazil's legation.
there's more than president Zelaya under the "Auriverde" at this point in the historiographical time continuum.
this is breaking news.
breaking news gets broken really quickly which is why it is customary to provide what some consider to be "background links". This convention assists the chattering classes sustain their delusion that if breaking news does indeed break and go arse up pear shaped, they at least know how to put it all back together again.
How it began :
June 26th with an awful lot of update comments
how it was reacted to :
July 3rd Coup in honduras: the return of the gorillas or the tactics of attrition?
The Coup d’état in honduras - The return of the “gorillas” or a policy of attrition.
honduras Newspaper Impressed that Daughter of Pinochet Backs Coup
honduras: Anti-Chavez ‘free speech’ warriors linked to coup
honduras: Military Announcement Against Coup
Involvement of Chiquita in the Honduran Coup D'Etat.
It then lost some grabiness on the international news thing - so I suggested we look at other issues.
The new Latin American century, FARC, arms races, US bases & sundry fibs
New Latin American century (part 2): Nixon, Pinochet, Brazil, Chile, US bases, declassified files
New Latin American century (part 3): US "Forward Operating Locations", Domination, Robots & fibs.
But Miriam Cotton and David Manning of MediaByte were at least still paying attention :-
Iran versus honduras -Coverage in the Media
Then the USA did something or other.
Chairperson of US Congress committee on Foreign Affairs demands : " honduras - call it a Coup!"
As is also usual with breaking news, people will write lots about it. This is often how news gets so broken that its smithereens can't be put back together for love or money, whichever is more substanial or real.
That means, as the experienced reader no doubt not be informed, updates will follow.
It does not mean that Brazil is at war with the illegitimate regime of honduras. But the very same possible conditions of casus belli & casus foederis (legal justifications for military action by Brazil) are at this moment on the table.
As much if not more when I first mentioned both little titbits of international law and military intervention on the 29th of June in the comments to the article I wrote warning that Zelaya was about to deal with a coup. c/f http://www.indymedia.ie/article/92883 in particular : http://www.indymedia.ie/article/92883?search_text=hondu...54828
