    Any "Death Squads" were supported by the USSR and/or Cuba. Note there were no "Death Squads" once Communism collapsed.

    Russia and China will just take over the area and, I believe, will eventually subvert Daniel Ortega. Ortega feels he can play in the big leagues now but he's only playing in a small arena. I considered buying a ranch there for future investment, as well as exporting crops and raising cattle, but with these players the risk of investment is just too great. One thing is certain though. The income from this canal will not be going to the Nicaraguan people.

    You haven't been there and have no idea what went on or what's happening now. You read old propaganda, very good anti-American propaganda, and believe it, even though you live in America and should know better.

    A generation of people have grown up thinking the worst of their country while having virtually no knowledge of the outside world. I'm constantly amazed that anti American propaganda left over from the Cold War still resonates among so many Americans today.

    Best is with no death squads altogether, be it from their own countrymen, or from Russia or China.

    Well yes, but this was Communists versus the Contras, the Contras being those who wanted freedom instead. There was little choice for these people but to fight or flee, which hundreds of thousands did. When Communism collapsed, as it did in Eastern Europe and elsewhere, the Nicaraguan people were at last allowed to vote. That was a good thing. Electing Daniel Ortega years later was not.

    By supplying weapons to the contras, reagen was violating a arms control law signed by congress.

    This news is likely missing from your MSM, but you're probably up-to-date on the hi-jinks Hollywood celebrities are up to.
    I am an investor - I don't have time nor care in the slightest about Hollywood celebrities. Try asking instead of assuming next time.

    'The proposed route still faces environmental and social impact studies that could recommend some changes to the plan'

    It is only a go when all hurdles are cleared...though I assume it will eventually go through.

    And, once again, outside of possibly the environmental impact...I think it's great. More competition for international trade so passage prices will undoubtedly drop.

    And - again - if it pisses off Neocons...even better.

    Then Reagan was right and Congress was wrong.

    Why would any of this "piss off Neocons"? You seem to make sense for a few lines and then add this silliness.

    Yes, of course. Human lives are more important than some ignorant politicians.
