Do torture and murder constitute acceptable methods of political action?

by Emilio de Lima Tuesday, Aug. 04, 2009 at 4:51 PM

It would be humorous if it was not tragic: supposedly to guarantee the constitutional order the usurpers make "minced meat" of Hondura's Carta Magna.

Do torture and murder constitute acceptable methods of political action?

Taken away the President Mel Zelaya, the small Honduras sinks under a night of torture and killings.

The elected and (obviously) constitutional president of Central American country is accused by the usurpers of hiting the national constitution.

It would be humorous if it was not tragic: supposedly to guarantee the constitutional order the usurpers make "minced meat" of Hondura's Carta Magna.

Governments, ASO, UN, they've all manifested in rejection front the coup and no one has done absolutely any concrete action to restore Mel Zelaya to its rightful place which is the presidence of that nation.

The White House presented, by Hillary Clinton, one of those media shows in exquisite ambiguity, for beginners, which unfortunately we are all so accustomed with.

Hillary, in fact, if she spent the summer at beach in Brazil, would get very similar, but very similar indeed to her predecessor. And I do not refer only to the color of her skin but also to the attitudes we have been able to observe from the secretary of state, not reassuring at all, many of them.

The world is tired of this attitude of the U.S. to try to be the police of the planet Earth. The world is tired of this apparent syndrome of permanent intervention that does not only work just when it should.

It is clear that the U.S. could simply determine that the usurpers got back to their insignificance and took Zelaya back to presidency.

Meanwhile, the U.S. is, after all, an empire or a democracy? Barack Obama controls the Pentagon and the ill-famous "agencies"?

The U.S. will push to the extreme in this type of foreign policy who has written with blood and late dictatorships most of the pages of the twentieth century, at Latin America and at the world?

Will U.S.try to circumvent the monotonous and repetitive fate of all empires, prophesied by science of history, since always and forever?

Or will the U.S. citizenship to regain control over their great nation and pass to carry abundant resources administered by the American national state in favor of the vast majority of the population, now facing difficulties related to the unavailability of jobs?

It is known that the old Nazi formula of heating the economy through the pursuit of war is financially expensive, socially disastrous and it does only benefit (does it really?) the owners of the arms industry.

Similarly, the banking system controlled by the same "team" ever, has repeatedly shown that uses badly the resources of american society, is unable to regulate itself, and tends repeatedly to misappropriation and disaster.

George W. Bush worked hard on strengthening the empire. His works and methods were clear and eloquent. Is Barack Obama the leader of the reconstruction of American democracy? Does he want it? Will he try it? Is he trying it?

Or did Barack know very well that he was getting into trouble and had no plan to neutralize it?

I leave these distressing thoughts for you, U.S. citizen, in the prospect of moving one more step in building a policy of solidarity between the peoples of America and of the world to restore the rule of law, of right, of national constitutions and sovereignty of peoples and of their respective national states.

This walk will not be easy, but the alternative is the darkness that is crashing down on Honduras and that brings the cold back to our hearts.

Our request to you is that you do press everything you know and everything you can towards the return of President Zelaya to his constitutional functions. The precedent can not succeed. The Americas can not slip back under the night of dictatorships.

Thank you very much,

I send you a strong hug,

Emilio de Lima
