Wow!…the words to describe this?

um…The Europeans have some… um… I don’t know how to say this…. cojones!

Smack ’em with a fine via BBC NEWS | Americas | EU suspends $90m aid to Honduras.

The European Union has suspended more than $90m (63m euros; £54m) in aid to Honduras in the wake of a coup there.

It follows the failure of talks to resolve the country’s political crisis.

President Manuel Zelaya was ousted from office by troops on 28 June over his plans to hold a referendum on changing the constitution.

The current interim government, led by Roberto Micheletti, has rejected a proposal that Mr Zelaya return as leader of a unity government.

The EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner said in a statement: “In view of the circumstances, I have taken the difficult decision to suspend all budgetary support payments.

“I strongly appeal to both parties to refrain from any action or declaration which might further escalate tension, thus making the prospect of a solution more difficult.”

Lets see how the ‘other nation’ on the ‘other side’ of the globe reacts. 🙂
