The deposed president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, called for an “insurrection” in his country so he can be returned to power following the June 28 military coup.
“The Honduran people have the right to insurrection,” said Zelaya, speaking in the neighboring Central American country of Guatemala.
Zelaya said that insurrection was a legitimate democratic right “when faced with a usurping government and a coup-supporting military.
Not only does Manuel Zelaya look like Saddam Hussein, he sounds like him, too. Zelaya was careful to not directly call for violence, but it’s not hard to imagine what would happen if thousands of Hondurans took him up on his plan.
