Fidel's Claim of US Culpability in the Honduran Coup based on past US actions and on US administatrations specific actions since the coup,

by: Andrew Taylor

The best predictor in constructing a profile for a crime is based on past experience. Not an infallible predictor, but in a case such as the Honduras coup involving a Latin American military intervention in a country closely tied to the criminal putchist US state, one has a very long and egregious case-history to contemplate.

Further, the US admits it was in talks with the Coup plotters for weeks before the action. (In US account they tried to persuade them not to do the coup d'etat.) But the analysis Fidel published today is specifically analysing the Obama admin's actions since the Coup. It is a political analysis to be sure. And I think it is an extremely reasonable analysis of Arias and the intent in arranging "The Talks". But then I wouldn't want to be thought to be part of what President George Bush Sr termed "the Blame America First Crowd"...
