Honduras: Second-Most Globalized

As president-elect Porfirio Lobo attempts to rebuild Honduras’ international relations, his motivation is clearcut. While the Central American nation depends heavily on foreign credits, it also is heavily dependent on foreign trade, tourism, remittances, investments and more.

In fact, apart from Panama, no other Latin American nation is as globalized as Honduras, according to the fifth annual Latin Globalization Index from Latin Business Chronicle…Read Article Here.

    It is very ignorant to focus on this “Banana Theory” , overlooking the panoramic reality wjhich is that Z’liar is a puppet of Fidel, Raul and Chavez and is just following orders to institute a type of regime that has failed over and over in different parts of the world. Communism is not the answer to poverty or opression, in fact, it makes them much worse. Communism makes everyone poor and strips the people of their human rights. Look at Cuba and Venezuela. You would have to be an idiot to want to live like they live in those countries.
    Z’liar has proven by his actions his evil intentions, his ego-mania and his poor judgement and by his crimes. He belongs in jail.
    Hondurans have proven to be much wiser than the people in other Latin American countries by not falling into the demagogue’s trap.
    Viva Honduras!!!

    To those who are intelligent ,we need to stop believing these Banana Conspiracies put forward to justify some people’s quest for power and wealth that they are claiming to be fighting on behalf of the poor trafficking in drugs and buying arms to protect their empires while telling the people rubbish buy food and improve education and improve poor people’s standard of living instead they behaving just like the imperialist they claim to be fighting Zelaya Chavez Morales Ortega and the rest of their gang do not seem to be starving to me they look rather well fed from the spare tyre stomaches they are wearing. Dictators never improve anything but do more harm to the people they simply become the new Elite.

    (To those who are ignorant)

    Zelaya called for a new constitution to replace the old one that was set up by the former Honduran government, controlled by the rich elite in favor of the very wealthy and international companies. Zelaya also called for the 60% increase for the bottom wage rate, which had a huge impact on Dole and Chiquita, two of the biggest employers of that company. They along with a number of companies that have sweat shops in Honduras, strongly objected and call in the military. This was a classic sponsored coup of one devil getting rid of the other devil, Zelaya, who was eventually, flown to a U.S. military base and later to Costa Rica. Washington was involved from the very beginning as Dole and Chiquita had their strong financial ties with the U.S. Getting their share from the piece of cake (Honduran economy), the Honduran people are left in poverty and the low-wage bracket. It still amazes me that intelligent people can’t see how the economy directs the politics of Honduras, and how the U.S. military bases set up in Honduras to fight drugs, are really there for strategic purposes all for the “love of money.”


    God help us!
