Word to the Honduras coup mongers

Take a hard look at these photos of Luis Arce Gomez. On the right is the man in 1980, Interior Minister (i.e. "Minister of Cocaine") to the military coup government of Luis García Meza. Doesn't he look sharp and confident. On the left is Arce Gomez yesterday, a sad old man being wheeled into a cold cell in Bolivia's maximum security Chonchocoro prison where he will pass the rest of his days.

Think hard golpistas, because you are looking at your fate.

Extra: If you read Spanish, BoliviaSol has the links to good articles reflecting on the history of golpismo in Bolivia.
