Peter, I posted about the same issue in the chat area. It's interesting that your link is so much more informative than the story I found. Thanks.

"Zelaya said on Costa Rican television that he was a “victim of kidnapping” and a “coup d’etat,” part of a plot by members of the military to remove him from power."

How is it that he's on TV in Costa Rica if he's been kidnapped.

International news reports say he submitted a written resignation and fled to Costa Rica in exile. He would like to make his sympathizers think he was kidnapped.

Speaking on Venezuelan state television, Chavez -- who has long championed the left in Latin America -- said he had put his troops on alert over the Honduran coup and would do everything necessary to abort the coup against his close ally.

He said that if the Venezuela ambassador was killed, or troops entered the Venezuela embassy, "that military junta would be entering a defacto state of war, we would have to act militarily." He said, "I have put the armed forces of Venezuela on alert."

Chavez, who has in the past threatened military action in the region but never followed through, said that if a new government is sworn in after the coup it would be defeated.

He didn't go to Costa Rica for the fun of it, though it is a little nicer than Honduras. What ever's going on, it doesn't help our region.
