It appears that the peace deal in Honduras has collapsed due to the inability of the principals to trust each other.  With the existing Honduran constitution barring him from running again and with his original term set to expire the international community faces the question of whether to recognize the upcoming elections.  No side comes out of this mess smelling like roses, but there seems to be no reason to damage Honduran institutions further by propping up the expired term of President Zelaya.  For that to happen, the elections will have to be open, fair and free and certified by international monitors.
