They were there to help people and this is what they get in return.

Another third world shithole to add to the places sane people shouldn't attend.

The world isn't a nice place and it's getting worse by the day.

I agree Oldguy, and I for one think that our most charitable citizens should be contributing on our own soil not in some backwater slum in another counrty.

I should add my praise for this man that died protecting the woman he loves, a real man and obviously true love, I would hope that faced with something like this I would do the same.

I'm going to go off on a rant on this post....

Third world "shitholes" hold the resource ace cards.

I can name off at least 30 countries at the top of my head that we rely on for food in the winter, petrol, gas, and a slew of other materials (as well as manufactured goods).

Now, we in Canada is pretty self sufficient, large country with small population. Luck.

However, look at your Euro brethren, and the Americans, who have so heavily began to rely on foreign imports for their survival and way of life (Europe especially is a symbol of foreign reliance).

Its in their special interest to make sure that these "third world shitholes" remain friendly.

Niger Delta militants dislike western oil majors, every pipeline they blow up causes uncertainty in the markets and causes gas prices to increase, costs of running a business to go up, and jobs to be subsequently shed if needed (the great global chain of capitalism).

When the Honduran government is toppled, one of its staple export Bananas is disrupted. This following the same logic above causes instability, food prices may increase due to lower supply. In extreme cases if it is a highly inelastic good (corn, wheat, potatoes, rice) domestic inflation may increase. Remember summer 2008 and the rapid increase of food prices?

For every friendly regime that is toppled or overthrown the very way of life for westerners in threatened one way or another.

America uses its military muscle to preserve its own security by intimidating those it needs to keep in line; Europe uses its financial muscles. China uses political threats.
Canada, on the other hand prefers small charities and peacekeepers.


Africa and Latin America are the most resource rich places on the planet. They are also the most volatile, and sport honorably certified members of the "third world shithole" brigade by the bundles.


That being said if we isolate ourselves within our own boundaries and avoid reaching out, we run the risk of becoming isolated and allowing friendly regimes to be toppled and replaced with ones that dislike us. They may stop trading with us.

The very notion of that, places our whole technological and modern way of life at risk, because we are so reliant on them.

That being said, its going to come to a point where there will be so many people on the planet that someone will have to give.

Just a thought.

Honduras is actually a pretty decent country that is trying very hard not to be like every other Latin America ****hole. That's a big part of why they ousted President Zelaya who was seeking to make himself yet another dictator on the model of Hugo Chavez. They don't have law and order like we do up north, but they are trying and they are serious about it and they deserve our support.

Nice rant, but here's another thought. If it's such a friendly country, why does it allow MS 13 to operate with impunity, exporting death and destruction all over North America.

It would appear to me that the Honduran Government is no more friendly to North Americans than, to the gangs that stoke their political economy with bribes and threats and quite possibly even less so.

If they we're friendly they'd have at least attempted to put the brakes on these gangsters, who, in all likelyhood we're involved in this gentlemans death.

I won't hold my breath about something like that happening anytime soon, and I stand by the statement that it's just another third world shithole, run by criminals, that people should avoid.
