After his much-ballyhooed excursion yesterday evening, Zelaya turned tail and ran away, like Sir Robin:
His little incursion lasted 30 minutes and it was a show for the media:
Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya pushed through a crowd made up mostly of journalists and some supporters, lifted the chain that divides Nicaragua and Honduras, and stepped into his homeland Friday, nearly a month after he was deported in a coup.
He stepped back into Nicaragua 30 minutes later.
The Beeb calls it a symbollic move.
As DP asked,
If he did indeed enter Honduras and then leave on his own, doesn’t this mean that his exile is voluntary? It seems that there is a difference between forcible exile and a refusal to repatriate. Jus sayin’.
And another question to ponder,
Is Insulza inflaming Honduras?
