In the weeks and months before the 1992 coup in Peru, President Fujimori clashed with the legislature over economic decrees and human rights investigations. The military sided with the president and brought the tanks to Congress to shut it down.
In the weeks and months before the 2009 coup in Honduras, President Zelaya clashed with both the legislature and the courts over various policies and attempts by the president to obtain more power. The military turned against the president, removed him, and backed the head of Congress (of Zelaya's own party) becoming the interim president.
We’re currently in a “weeks and months before” moment in Venezuela.
