AMLO and the army

In some good news from Mexico, AMLO has said his followers will not block the military’s Independence Day parade this coming Saturday. He said that they respected the military, and that “most of the troops belong to the people.” They will move the tents out of the way for the parade, but no one knows whether they will be put back right afterward.

Boz had argued that AMLO would possibly start backing off, claiming victory while ratcheting down the disruptive tactics. Is this such an example, or simply a way to avoid a direct confrontation with the army? I'm not ready to hazard a guess.

Also, Michelle does a nice job of summing up the past several months in Mexico, centered on the theme of disappointment.
