The editorial over at National Review Online is required reading for anyone who wants to understand what really seems to have happened in Honduras.

In fact, President Zelaya -- the victim of the supposed "coup" -- was making a play to transform his presidency into a dictatorship, following in the footsteps of his friend Hugo Chavez.

So it's no surprise that Chavez denounced what happened.  It's no surprise that Fidel Castro did, too.  Same goes for Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega.

What's a little disappointing is that the President who wouldn't be caught "meddling" on behalf of the cause of freedom in Iran added his voice to the left-wing chorus of Chavez, Castro and Ortega.
