That's President Ortega to you, warmongers!
It looks as if Daniel Ortega will be returned to the Nicaraguan President's office in spite of American howls of protest. The last time he was in office the USA sponsored a terrorist campaign against his Sandanista government that led to the deaths of roughly 50,000 Nicaraguans. Now all the Americans can do is howl.
Their army is busy providing target practice for the Iraqi insurgents: that's when it's not back home, tired, shagged out and being refitted.
Now do the warmongers get the idea? One reason why we support the Iraqis is because a defeat for imperialism allows space for countries like Nicaragua to elect traditional leftists like Daniel Ortega.
Each country must find its own path. The common enemy that we have is globalised capitalism in its neo-imperialist mode. If the Iraqis can defeat that, then they will have done the people of this planet a great service.
