article: Nicaragua - A US Colony Again?
Warning: This article is an ultra-left wing take on the recent visit from the U.S. State Dept's Robert Zoellick to Nicaragua. Very much from the "evil U.S." version of reality . . .
What I find interesting is the author's take on Lewites, and how he he will "embrace US-style "free market" capitalism, and the abandonment of national sovereignty that move entails."
The article goes on to illustrate what a joke it is for politicians like Lewites saying they are going to be "rescuing Sandinismo" when they are so busy proving to the U.S. gov't how "democratic" they are . . . while not saying anything about their beliefs vis-a-vis privatizing water, banning generic drugs, etc. You know, stuff that will actually be important for the people of Nicaragua . . .
The primary motivation for Zoellick's visit, (again, according to the article) was to slap around the Constitutional Liberal Party (PLC) to push through ratification of the Central American Free Trade Agreement. I guess that your efforts paid off RZ!
Now, whether or not more jobs come to Nicaraguans or not remains to be seen. Let's hope so.
