The Usual Suspects

Little support from anywhere for the coup in Honduras. But, according to a spokesman on From Our Own Correspondent, “Israel and Taiwan are being very helpful”. Say it ain’t so. I couldn’t have been more surprised if he had said Georgia.

Did those who staged this coup follow custom and practice by securing the prior approval of the American Administration? Or did they instead secure the approval of those who can ensure that “Israel and Taiwan are being very helpful”? The latter, it seems.

In which case, what have the American Enterprise Institute, the Project for the New American Century, and so on, been able to offer by way of military and other backing, conducting their own foreign policy without reference to the elected President or Congress of the United States?

  1. Notice the BBC & company weren't leading with this story on their main news programmes. Honduras must be short on oil...
