The Wall Street Journal has a great article today about what is going on in Honduras, Central America in general, and the unbelievable ignorance of history, which if it persists, may result in a bloody global war that would likely alter what has been known as western civilization, or even end the very traditions upon which it, and its anciliiary freedoms have rested.
The problem is appeasement. The ghost of Neville Chamberlain is stalking the halls of international diplomacy once again. And we saw the results of what happened the first time.
Chavez has maintained and increased his power only because of western appeasement which started in the Bush era, and has increased a hundredfold since then.
The Honduran people had the courage to stand up to the Chavista bullies, and the MUST be supported.
The only language thugs, be they schoolyard bullies or world-scale tyrants understand is resolve, and the will to fight back.
May the Hondurans stand firm against these organizations like the UN, OAS and the spineless governments that comprise them. That will hopefully give others living under oppression the will and courage to take back their countries from gangster governments.
The west has failed the Iranian people. Let's not fail these others who live in our wn backyard.
