"Stubborn as a mule" doesn't even begin to cover it.

Deposed Honduran leader prepares risky return

So. Your biggest allies are telling you that to return now is to ask for trouble.

You KNOW there will be trouble.

Yet you vow to return, at the head of a mob, forcing your way into what still is a sovereign border? And you...expect to just be let in. And then what? March on into Tegucigalpa completely unopposed.

Very smart. Very peaceful. Very reasonable.

Except, you know, the complete opposite of that.

Now really. Anyone. Tell me how these are the actions of a reasonable man. Tell me what Zelaya expects will happen if he acts against the advice of...everyone. Anyone. Please. Because it is completely beyond me at this point. I can only stare at the screen, jaw hanging wide open.

I give up. I give up on trying to understand any of these people. I'm going to go beat my head against the wall now.

My question is this: What exactly does Zelaya want?
Is he looking to establish a dictatorship? Does he genuinely care about the rights of the impoverished in Honduras? In the U.S., we have no idea as to what his intentions might be and can only guess as to what he hopes to accomplish by plunging the country into civil war.
He seems a very brash and reckless man who does NOT have the best interests of the people at heart but, again, I find it hard to sympathize with the right wing element of the Honduran government when they are suppressing basic human rights. Figgy, it is a quandary that I can't see being solved in a civilized manner and all that I can do is wish you well and hope/pray for a good outcome.
