His Barackness could certainly stop the immediate crisis just by saying the word...but it's gonna take a lot more work to make the RISK of crises go away. For one thing, Honduras has to purge each and every last one of its officers who trained at the School of the Assassins--and it needs to be written into the constitution that no future member of the armed forces will ever go there for training again.

And then, of course, there's the problem of the oligarchy, which is even worse than the army. One can't get rid of them so easily. But at least, with a purge of the military, they'll have lost a lot of teeth.
