what you need to know

While a mock trial goes on in Iran, we have a people suffering for another reason in Honduras. Iran, getting criticism, but not nearly enough. Honduras, however, where the democratic government has done the right thing; is getting lots of heat in media. Why?
The dictator wannabe Zelaya has now apparently been thrown out of Mexico as well, something I so far haven't seen reported in our western media. Why?

Here is what you need to know:

What you'll learn is that the Honduran Constitution may be amended in any way except three. No amendment can ever change (1) the country's borders, (2) the rules that limit a president to a single four-year term and (3) the requirement that presidential administrations must "succeed one another" in a "republican form of government."

In addition, Article 239 specifically states that any president who so much as proposes the permissibility of reelection "shall cease forthwith" in his duties, and Article 4 provides that any "infraction" of the succession rules constitutes treason. The rules are so tight because these are terribly serious issues for Honduras, which lived under decades of military rule.

Our media is never doing their job, I have said that before and I say it again. It is very frustrating how media has ignored the hundreds of thousands that gathered to support the Honduran government and oppose (CNN even called a 20,000 big rally pro-Zelaya when it was a pro-government rally). The biggest protest by the Zelaya supporters has been around 45,000. While a week before the socialist dictator was thrown out 100,000 marched against Zelaya's illegalities in San Pedro Sula. 160,000 gathered at the presidential palace and 40,000 gathered at the Central Park of Tegucigalpa in support of the current government and against Zelaya and Chavez's intervention.
And What is the main source our bias media is using for their reports from Honduras? It's TELESUR. And do you know who owns that channel? Hugo Chavez...

Of course the Obamination is showing his true color, hardly saying anything towards Iran, but condeming the democratic government of Honduras as mentioned here:

The only illegal action that was taken was expelling Zelaya from Honduras. The military has admitted that and said they are expecting citations for what they did. The judicial advisor of the army said he was ready to take responsibility of his actions. He said that the military seriously considered the risks and consequences of each option they had. After considering the option of arresting, encarcerating, and submitting Zelaya to trial in a base or prison in Honduras, they decided it was too dangerous for the people, the military, and Zelaya. Considering the infiltration of foreign agitators and the fact that Zelaya previously led and emboldened a mob to break into the air force base, they concluded the possibilities of a massacre was too high to keep him in the country.
