'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)
'A wiser approach would change course completely: The United States would distance itself from the Lobo administration, speak plainly about its deficiencies, and immediately cut police and military aid to Honduras.'
– Dr. Dana Frank (below right), Professor of History at the University of California-Santa Cruz, in "Honduras Gone Wrong," a scathing critique of U.S. foreign policy with respect to that Central American country, recently published in Foreign Affairs.
Frank notes inter alia that Honduras "now has the highest murder rate in the world," and faults the United States for supporting the administration of Porfirio Lobo Sosa, elected in November 2009 balloting that itself drew international criticism. That vote followed a June 2009 coup d'état, about which IntLawGrrls posted at the time; our Honduras posts are available here.
