DAY 3 UPDATE: WORLD BANK "PAUSES" AID TO HONDURAS; WHY CAN'T OBAMA FOLLOW SUIT?

Strange to see the World Bank, headed by Bush-Reaganite Robert Zoellick, Condi Rice's second arm and co-signer of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) - the Bush-Cheney war doctrine in the Middle East to gain world energy control and domination and justify wars in Iraq and beyond - taking a step even the "progressive" Obama Administration has refused to pursue.

This in from Reuters:

"WASHINGTON, June 30 (Reuters) - The World Bank has "paused" all program lending to Honduras following a military coup in the impoverished country, World Bank President Robert Zoellick said on Tuesday.

"We're working closely with the OAS (Organization of American States) and looking to the OAS to deal with its handling of the crisis under its democratic charter," Zoellick told reporters, "In the process we have put a pause with our lending." (Reporting by Lesley Wroughton; Editing by James Dalgleish)"

Does Obama really want to appear further right-wing than Robert Zoellick?

To read the names John Negroponte and Robert Zoellick in any context relating to Honduras or Central and South America is troubling. Neither man has been progressive in dealings with Third-world countries.
I have asked President Obama to immediately suspend any economic or military aid to the dictators until the coup is overthrown and Democracy is returned to Honduras.
