Modern coups d'état

We're all technology and information age down here in LatAm, we don't need no stinkin' guns to overthrow Presidents these days, just a parliament that makes up rules to suit its cause. The pattern is clear, Lugo in Paraguay, Zelaya in Honduras and coming up in a few minutes' time the biggest win so far for the oppressors of an entire continent, Dilma in Brazil. Because freedom.

Mind you, if all else fails they can always fall back on good old fashioned violence in the streets. To that end keep an eye on Caracas tomorrow September 1st, could be a lot of fun.
