Memo to Spain’s Zapatero: Honduras is NO LONGER your colony!!

Seems that the socialist president of Spain is telling Hoduras’ president-elect Porfirio Lobo what to do, telling him that if he has any contacts with the interim government presided over by Micheletti, then Spain will not recognize his government.

Porfirio Lobo, President-Elect of the Honduran republic, should just simply CALL HIS BLUFF. The worst thing that could happen is that they will stall official political recognition. He may have influence in Europe when he takes over the presidency.

It is even more important, however, if it is not a bluff, to maintain the principled stand that Honduras took. Micheletti took the international heat but he is a national hero to Hondurans, a hero. After all these months of defending its constitutional republic against the psychological onslaughts of less noble governments, and against the attempts to make them bow down to the nascent world dictatorship, Honduras deserves a pilot at the helm who will continue to avoid smashing the ship of state against orders from abroad.

Lobo needs to make clear that Honduras will continue to be free, and institute the changes that will protect his people from dependence on foreign largesse.
