Obama Quick to Condemn Overthrow of Wannabe Dictator, Students Still Waiting in Iran

President Barack Obama was swift to condemn the Constitutional and legal overthrow of a leader in a small, strategically unimportant country. This former leader of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, attempted to force a referendum on his country deemed illegal by the Honduran Supreme Court.

When Zelaya went forward with his threats, he was summarily removed by the military, as provided by the democratic Constitution. However, the President, who seems to becoming more and more astute on foreign policy, condemned the action. From BBC:

And [Obama] said a "terrible precedent" would be set if the coup were not reversed.

Earlier on Monday, speaking in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez spelled out his opposition to the situation in Honduras.

"We cannot allow a return to the past. We will not permit it," Mr Chavez said.

Meanwhile, in Iran, which holds the world's second-largest oil reserves, Obama has still to call on support on the 'democratically-elected' leader of that country. Instead, he is leaning towards recognition of Ayatollah Khamenei's dictatorship and his lapdog Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Students in Teheran are attempting to fight back against the oppressive theocracy, braving threats of death. President Obama has been very quiet on this subject, letting the students dangle.

I think we're in trouble.
