Power-mad Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was peacefully replaced by Interim President Roberto Micheletti following Zelaya's illegal attempt to rewrite the nation's constitution so as to extend his term-limited 4 years in office.
Zelaya had lost the confidence of the other two branches of government, his populace and Honduras' law-enforcement units.
The Honduran Congress said that Interim President Micheletti will serve out the remaining 7 months of Zelaya's term.
Zelaya is widely regarded as a stooge for Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez. It is unclear whether Chavez or other international leaders will seek to usurp -- or 'meddle in,' to use a Barack Obama phrase -- the affairs of the sovereign Honduran nation.
Obama has steadfastly chosen not to meddle in the election in Iran, so any interference in Honduras' affairs will be properly viewed as hypocritical.
UPDATE: Zelaya accused of drug ties
