In October 2009, to enhance their psychological pressure on him, the new authorities in Honduras have released music and animal sounds at full blast to keep them from sleeping.
"Since yesterday midnight, we are bombarded with loud noises, blaring music, military marches, rock, punta (rhythm Honduras)" said Rasel Tomé counsel Zelaya, Radio Globo, the One of ares opposition media in the coup regime.
"What we've experienced is typical of psychological maneuvers employed by an army against another," he added.
Among the songs used by the military, "Rata back patas (Rat two-legged)", a popular Mexican singer tube, Paquita la del Barrio, known for its ambiguous texts.
"Beast harmful, poisonous snake, a waste of life, I hate you and I despise you. Rat two-legged, to thee I speak, because even the worst dirty animals is very small compared to you" she chanted in the song.
"We feel like the middle of a howling jungle with lions, elephants, monkeys, dogs, donkeys and so on ... And then the shrill music for us prevented from sleeping"confirmed a photographer for Agence France-Presse (AFP), which is located inside the embassy.
The deafening engines used were described as "non-lethal weapons" produced by a multinational American technology, they emit sounds of 151 decibels painful with a range of 300 meters and land are used in a war zone and to counter demonstrations .
The military orders of the coup leaders have also sprayed the Brazilian Embassy toxic gases to the infiltrate the building through the sewer system.
According to the "Hondurian News Network," the former first lady Xiomara Castro de Zelaya has been watered products chimqiues when she climbed a ladder to see where these attacks originated.

The Geneva Convention protects embassies and any violation of this protection is an international problem.
If this tactic had been used to dislodge the former president Laurent Gbagbo and his supporters holed up in the presidential palace in Abidjan, that would have avoided 15 days in a pointless war with Ivorians, particularly since no international convention does provides this scenario!
