Thoughts on Zelaya's 20-truck convoy to the border, complete with Venezuelan driver? It'll all end in tears, I'm guessing....

So far, so good, though. I'm not always right, but it does indeed seem as though Zelaya was posturing. All we need now is for the Supreme Court to ratify the accord; which seems to be only remaining stumbling block.

Here's the text of the accord.

A lot of it does sound like jockeying for position, from both sides. I found the military communique interesting. That said, any chance that events get beyond the main actors?

"In the meantime, however, thousands of troops had been deployed to tighten security along the border to prevent Mr. Zelaya from returning. And thousands of his supporters defied government curfews and military roadblocks, by abandoning their cars and hiking for hours to reach the remote border post to see him."
