Right-Wing Cuban Terrorist behind Honduras Coup!

It's well known that one of the largest supporters of the coup against Honduran president Manuel Zelaya, was a Cuban multi-millionaire named Rafael Hernndez Nodarse; more commonly know by his alias "Ralph H. Nodarse." He is the owner of San Pedro Sula's most popular TV station, Channel 6, which has played a decisive role in the justification of the coup and in the campaign to support Micheleti and the other insurrectionists.

Perhaps slightly less well known is that, before the coup, Ralph Nodarse was an active participant in assassination attempts against president Zelaya. And it may not be common knowledge, outside of Honduras, that his name came to light in a bombing attempt against former Honduran president Carlos Roberto Reina.

Outside of Honduras people probably don't know about the meetings Nodarse held in his San Padro Sula house with members of the Miami mafia to plan action against President Zelaya and his chancellor, Patricia Rodas, for their pro- Cuba posture in the meetings in Trinidad and Toago in April; two months before Micheleti's coup in June.

Nodarse's links to the Miami mafia are nothing new, its just old friendly ties and political acquaintances. After Luis Posada Carriles (a CIA trained anti-Cuban terrorist) was released from a Panamanian prison in1994, pardoned in the middle of the night by president Mireya Moscoso hours before the end of his term, Nodarse took him in. Four years before in 1990, Posada was shot while leading a Death Squad in Guatemala and went right to San Pedro Sula.

1. Right Wing Cubans are under a lot of rocks aren't they?
From the Bay of Pigs to blowing up civilian airliners to Iran Contra to Elian Gonzales to boycotting artists and on and on.

2. They just can't let go
These right-wing reactionaries have been a pox on Latin America for Centuries.

The 'Church' tells them that they are on a mission from God. They use it as a justification to murder and torture.
