Zalaya “thugs” and “militants” have been threatening Honduran journalists.

Tegucigalpa, Honduras could become another Tehran by tomorrow night.

Hondurans are trying to get word out by Twitter that they are receiving threatening text messages on their cell phones tonight, telling them to stay inside and not leave their homes tomorrow night.

“Now more than ever I will be the first one out the door,” Honduran Pedro Martinez told Canada Free Press tonight.  Pedro Martinez is the pseudonym we gave to the young Honduran professional that Canada Free Press (CFP) walked through Twitter hookup last week.

“Tomorrow might be a bad day,” Pedro tipped off CFP on twitter.  “People are infiltrating Honduras thru (sic) Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua with the intention to create chaos.”

Looks like deposed Honduran leader Manuel Zelaya, who has called for a popular insurrection in his own country so that he can be returned to power after soldiers removed him at gunpoint on June 28, is on the way back.

With the verbal cunning of good Marxists the world over and the backing of tyrant Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, this is Zelaya’s message today from the safety of Guatemala: “The Honduran people have the right to insurrection.”

“I want to tell you to not leave the streets, that is the only space that they have not taken from us,” he told a news conference alongside Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom,” (Yahoo News.com. July 15, 2009).

Meanwhile, no one in Honduras is running from Zelaya’s threats.  “We are not issuing threats,” acting foreign minister Carlos Lopez said in response to Zelaya’s call for an insurrection, reminding the exiled Honduran leader that Roberto Micheletti’s government was in control and the country was at peace.

“We removed the curfew and the government has complete control of the territory.”

Problem is Pedro and tens of thousands like him, who backed Zelaya’s ouster on June 28, believe the streets and democracy belong to them.

Zelaya’s ultimatum to the interim government ordering it to relinquish power within the week and the demands for his immediate restitution has only raised the peoples’ dander.

People like Pedro expect only the worst from Zelaya.

This is a sturdy resistance that predates the July 28 bum’s rush, and one that sees Zelaya as a dictator who is giving their country and all it stands for over to “socialist rule under Chavez.”

“Long before the so-called coup d’etat, we watched as Chavez’s shiny new tractors were given like carnival candy to Honduran farmers,” Pedro told CFP in an earlier telephone call.  “The tactics are the same ones used by Communists everywhere.”

“While his own people, whose children go hungry were out of work, Zelaya was swaggering under his 10-gallon cowboy hats and 100% tooled leather cowboy boots.

“We were told that big-spending Zelaya had been whooping it up in Costa Rica, where he blew his way through $80,000 in his first few days in exile.

“I was there at Tegucigalpa airport on July 6 when our interim government refused to let his plane touch down from Costa Rica.  Zelaya and supporters, whose bullets killed my two countrymen, lied when they said the bullets came from the Interim Government side.  Our side used rubber bullets.  Zalaya supporters used real bullets on real people.”

Pedro, who speaks perfect English, says Zalaya “thugs” and “militants” have been threatening Honduran journalists.  “We know what supermarket your wife uses.  We know which school your little boy attends.  That’s what they have been telling journalists,” Pedro says.

“God bless Honduras.  God bless Canada and the Free World.  Nobody is going to take our Freedom and Democracy away. Nobody.”

Tonight there’s a flurry of text messages going between Hondurans who want to keep their country a democracy “even if it means a bloodbath”.

The coming bloodbath of which they speak is more than an exaggeration. 

General Romeo Vasquez, head of the Honduran Army, told AFP that Zelaya was exiled to avoid “deaths and injuries”.

Meanwhile, Pedro and his many countrymen are in defending Honduras mode: “God bless Honduras.  God bless Canada and the Free World.  Nobody is going to take our Freedom and Democracy away. Nobody.”


Honduras Reinstates Curfew, Warns of Action

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras — Honduras’ interim government warned of armed actions to return ousted President Manuel Zelaya to power and reinstated an overnight curfew it had lifted only days earlier.

Roberto Micheletti, the former congressional leader chosen by lawmakers to serve out the final six months of Zelaya’s term following the June 28 coup, said Wednesday that forces he didn’t identify “were handing out some guns” to foment rebellion. A day earlier, Zelaya said Hondurans have the right to launch an insurrection against the government.

“There are reports, I don’t know if they are real, I haven’t been officially informed, that there is a group of armed people and that Zelaya is going to enter over the Nicaraguan border this Saturday,” Micheletti said.
