Talks and tactics

I think the primary reason that the US State Department is pushing the San Jose Accord is because it is the result of an initiative that Mrs. Clinton essentially created. It would be illogical for the US now not to support the Accord. The question is, “What was the main goal of the talks in Costa Rica?” I happen to believe it was to buy time and to allow for the situation on the streets of Honduran cities and towns to calm down. I also believe it was a tactic to isolate Mr. Chavez and his ALBA friends so that they would cease to be active players in aggravating the situation in Honduras. Be it by excellent maneuvering or by accident, both goals have been met.
