What are you talking about? Because of the antics of the Sandinista
leadership we are back to ground zero. In fact a revolutionary overthrow in
these countries is going to mean a lot of blood. All evidence in history
says that the bougeoisie will not give it up without desperate
resistance..And no the Sandinistas should not have tried to build a "one
party state" but spread the revolution throughout Central America. And yes
the state is armed forces. The point is who has got the guns!

That is the whole point. America sees the "AMericas" as their backyard.
Sooner or later military confrontations will have to come. And these little
states can not win a war against the United States unless they base there
tactics on proletarian Internationalism. That the poor, not in the least the
minorites in the United States see this struggle as their struggle. If the
United States new that an invasion of lets say Nicaragua would mean a war at
home or with Mexico or other Latin American countries, perhaps there would
be less saber rattling from the Pentagons side..
