Ousted Honduran President Threatens "Other Means"

Deposed Honduran President Jose Manuel Zelaya has threatened to resort to "other means" in the event he is not restored to power.

Given the overall situation in neighboring Guatemala and Mexico, we can well imagine that those "other means" would include an insurgency.

Many commentators have - quite properly - criticized the coup that ousted Zelaya as a military abuse. But - unfortunately - the situation in Central America is such that the real significance of current events in Honduras is that drug cartels will exploit the unrest to transform it into a narco state.

And the Honduran military can huff and it can puff - but it ain't no match for the Zetas.
