You are mistaken, if as you post seems to imply, that the US was a bystander to the coup. It is the US that is having its cake and eat it too. The US supported the coup. They should have done like all the nations throughout Central and South America, and other parts of the world, called for--called for the reinstatement of the democratically elected Zelaya as president. The US could have shut off aid to the Micheletti and his corporate backers. But Clinton, her State Department, and Obama remained quiet for a long time, until they called for elections, elections that Zelaya was not allowed to participate in.
It's deja-vu all over again, the corporate backed forces of the US, who Clinton supports fully, had their way once again to our neighbors to the south. The coup in Brazil and the one going on in Venezuela are all part and parcel of our CIA and US foreign policy--state capitalism running the world.
