[QUOTE=Grant;1062510206]The Somozas were thieves and dictators. Daniel Ortega was re-elected several times in fair elections. The people of Nicaragua have a right to choose their own leaders without outside interference.
Really? What do you know about the Contras? Do you understand what 'Contra' means in Spanish and who they were fighting against? Do you believe 'self determination' is possible in a communist regime?
What you know about Nicaragua is nonsense. I've been in that area for 20 years, have Nicaraguan people in my employ, have heard all their stories and have checked them out with "The Black Book of Communism", written by former Communists. Understand that there was a Cold War going on for 45 years and what the first casualty always is..
