The reality is that few, if anyone, in Honduras would refuse to deal with the US Embassy. The US remains the power broker in Honduras, and the political crisis has been contained…thanks to US diplomacy and power politics. Honduran ego and pride have been hurt by the US. So what? Honduras has infinitely bigger and more pressing problems than to worry about feelings being hurt. Ultimately, the US is Honduras’ best friend and ally, and everyone in the country, except a few within the Resistance movement, knows it.
