Angus solves the world's problems, part I
The constitution of Honduras has a bullet proof no reelection clause. Its president, Mel Zelaya, wanted to be re-elected, so he commenced trying to get around the obstacle. Honduras' Congress and Judiciary rejected Mel's moves, but Mel just kept on keeping on, and in the end, the Supreme Court issued an arrest warrant.
The military, in executing that warrant, also decided to deport Mel, which I don't think was in the warrant, is itself unconstitutional, and basically turned the situation into a military coup (or at least a situation with severe coup-like symptoms).
Now, the question is, and has been for several weeks now, what to do?
To me, this is easy.
1. Mel agrees to drop any efforts to change the constitution / run a referendum and in return comes back to T-town and finishes out his term as president (the next election is November 29th for Pete's sake).
2. The military personnel who deported him are charged and tried for a mediumly serious crime but Mel pardons them if they are convicted.
3. If Mel reneges on any of this, the military can do what it do and the international community will stfu.
Thats it. Pan comido.
