    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.

    The June 2009 Honduran Supreme Court order to arrest then-president Manuel Zelaya in accordance with the Honduran constitution was a blow to international socialism.
