1 reason for Manuel “Mel” Zelaya Rosales Who? Email? Website? Δ Anonymous opinó: # 01 Oct 2009 Simply because in a true Democratic nation, political change of elected officials is done by the ballot, not the bullet. Whether or not Micheletti has a good case against Zelaya, which I personally dont think he does, clouds the fact that he used the military to remove an elected official. That is a failure of Democracy.
