How to React to the Military Coup in Zimbabwe

When a CIA supported military junta attempt to overthrow the democratically elected government of Venezuela, the New York Times was among the first publications to editorialize approvingly. They did the same thing when the Obama administration backed the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Honduras. Now the Army has overthrown the government of Zimbabwe. Although that government with hardly a democracy, it is also true that you cannot support a military coup and claim to be in favor of democracy. That apparently seems to be something that the American media does not understand.

    The actual socioeconomic situation has no bearing whatsoever on the actions of the big boys.
