On 23 June 2012, we learn that the president of Paraguay, Fernando Lugo, has been toppled in a coup and replaced by Federico Franco.
According to Wayne Madsen, it may be Obama's second successful coup against a progressive leader in Latin America; the first was Honduras. ( http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/ )

Lugo is a former Roman Catholic bishop who was elected on a pledge to help Paraguay's poor.
"This goes beyond Fernando Lugo. It goes beyond Paraguay. It's about true democracy for all of our America," said Ecuador's leftist president, Rafael Correa, adding that his government will not recognize any government in Paraguay other than Lugo's.
In Argentina, the government of President Cristina Fernandez said it "is not going to validate the coup d'etat that just occurred" in Paraguay.
Chilean Foreign Minister Alfredo Moreno said "we are worried" that Lugo's ouster "did not fulfill the minimum standards of due process and the legitimate defense that any person deserves." He said his country would decide its position toward the new Paraguayan government in the coming days.
