You really have got to wonder what the O.A.S. is playing at. There is no ambiguity in the position of the interim government, so what exactly is left to negotiate if the primary issue that Insulza and the O.A.S. are interested in — the reinstatement of Mr. Zelaya — is off the table? It seems that Mr. Insulza still believes that the O.A.S. can still strong arm the interim government to acquiesce by threatening heavier sanctions. I think that at this point nothing would change the interim government’s mind because it has already been backed into a corner by the international community. The interim government also knows that all it has to do is wait until November 29. Then, Mr. Zelaya’s case loses most, if not all, of whatever legitimacy it has.
No point in strong arming anymore
