"It is easier to believe in a dwarf"

Op-ed in center-right O Estado de S. Paulo (10-1) by sociologist
Demetrio Magnoli says: "....Barack Obama's U.S. plans to leave
behind its stigma of interventionism in Central America and, having
condemned the coup, will not engage deeply in the defense of a Hugo
Chavez ally.....[Regarding Brazil] It is more reasonable to believe
in dwarfs than in the GOB's version that Zelaya showed up in the
[Brazilian] embassy in Tegucigalpa without any warning.....Brazil,
which intended to lead, lost the right to mediate by its own
guilt.....At Brazil's Foreign Ministry it is amateur
time......President Lula and Foreign Minister Celso Amorim depend on
the success of the behind-the-scenes U.S. operations. If it does
not work, part of the responsibility for a tragic end that could
have been avoided will be on Brazil's shoulders."
