Conservative candidate Juan Hernandez's victory this week in Honduras' presidential election poses a potentially dangerous role for the military in the crime-riddled Central American nation, regional analysts say.
When the world last heard from Honduras in 2009, the country had sparked a regional crisis after deposing its president, Manuel Zelaya, for his repeated illegal attempts to rewrite the Honduran Constitution as his amigo, the now-deceased autocrat Hugo Chavez, had done in Venezuela.
