Vasquez Velasquez WILL NOT call the Armed Forces into the streets

So reports the minute by minute ticker in El Heraldo at 12:15 our time.

Looks like the question of what the military will do is getting clearer, no?

On the negative side: reportedly the Air Force did a flyover on the Brazilian Embassy. How crazy is the de facto regime? how much do they believe their own we-can-go-it-alone rhetoric? How out of control is the military?

And at 12:55 PDT, the minute by minute timeline on El Heraldo quote Romeo Vasquez as "confirming" the support of the Armed Forces for the government of Roberto Micheletti.

Zelaya, meanwhile, is quoted by La Prensa as calling on the Armed Forces not to repress the people.
