OAS Meeting Concludes

“The Organization of American States (OAS) is not a tribunal to judge the elections of Honduras, on the contrary, Honduras must be supported in order to rebuild the democracy of their country,” said Guillermo Alberto Coches, the Panama Representative to the OAS.

Coches believes the differing opinions of the representatives of the OAS, concerning the case of Honduras, only weakens the organization.

Honduras “is entitled to find their own destiny, and no one can impose one,” he concluded.

The special meeting convened on Friday to discuss the Honduran general election began at 3:00 p.m. and concluded at approximately 4:30 p.m. They could reach no consensus.

Secretary General, Miguel Insulza, said that the elections held on November 29th had failed to “heal” the political crisis in Honduras.

    The OAS obviously wants for Honduras to be turned into another “Socialist Police State” and will not stop trying no matter what.

    Even though Mr. Coches is trying to say the right thing, it still comes out wrong because of that statement made earlier by Ms. Clinton about Honduras having to find its way back to the “Path of Democracy” as if we ever left it.

    We did not go astray from that path, actually we stopped a Socialist, non-democratic take over attempt, but there are so many Socialist people in the current American Administration and in those many International Organizations like the very OAS, the UNO, the Human Rights organization and Amnesty International pushing their own political agenda that makes the Honduras situation seem worse than it actually was.

    They simply do not belong to the kind of thinking where the common people decide who rules the country, they actually believe themselves to be the only ones that can make the right choices for the people, and that is the main reason that they will not accept that Honduras acted within the law, because that same law forces them to accept the peoples choice.

    Well stated miraclemant. Honduras is a sovereign country that is well capable of handling its own affairs without any outsisde enterference. The rule of law prevailed because of the greatness of the people and their love of their country.Constitutions are worthless without the respect and greatness of the people to uphold and demand the laws be upheld. May the best be yet to come. A special commendation to Roberto Micheletti, Congress, and the Supreme Court for standing strong under extreme pressure from those who try to force their will where they have no business.

    “rebuild the democracy of their country,” I have news for you Guillermo Alberto Coches, Democracy NEVER left Honduras, the Constitution and the rule of law have prevailed!

    We, the people of Honduras have followed our Constitution, where “YOU” have most likely have not even read our Constitution. You do not understand our Country, and should keep your dirty corrupt nose out of our internal political affairs! ! ! ! !

    What are not healing are his words as always.
    “Secreatrio Insulta” should be his name. I would love to hear the story behind the story about how Chavez is using his narco-oil dollars to buy off all these countries including our infamous Secretary.
