Why Go Over The Hills Like Che When You Can Fly In With U.S. Help?

If you are a fugitive and you want to safely reside in a country that may imprison you for crimes if caught...the solution is easy. You fly to the American air base outside of Tegucigalpa and take a Brazilian car to the Brazilian the embassy. Brazil does not extradite. I wonder what the U. S. Obama government has arranged as a reward to Brazil.

Brazil’s risky role in Honduras crisis
By Stabroek staff | September 27, 2009 in World News

BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazil may not have invited ousted Honduran president Manuel Zelaya to take refuge in its embassy there, but opening its door to him is a high-risk bet that could harm its regional leadership ambitions.

President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s decision to grant Zelaya refuge at short notice at its embassy in Tegucigalpa has thrust Brazil to the centre of the crisis, giving it a chance to take a high-profile role in efforts to end the stand-off.

Manuel Zalaya was constitutionally removed from office by his own party's congress. The United States has removed all humanitarian aide, sanctioned this poor country, revoked U.S.visas for Honduran leaders, and led the effort for OAS and UN rebuke. Let's see. And what are we doing to Iran? We treat potential aggressors better than the friendly, constitutional democracy in Honduras. The United States wants a despot in Honduras.

Some may wonder, who's Che? Marxist revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara.
