    What consequences will Daniel Ortegas win have for people and neighbor Costa Rica?

    If you've traveled to CR then you've experienced first hand the beauty of the land and the people.

    My wife and I spent our honeymoon in CR and toured the whole country from San Jose to Guanacaste Province. We were amazed at the friendliness of the people, intelligence and gov'ts committment to educating the people and bringing prosperity.

    With the election of Ortega to the north, the history of Ortega's bullying of Costa Rica and the lack of a military to protect it is Costa Rica in danger of losing all the progress it has made for it's people?

    Will this lead to a military with teeth backed by the U.S.?

    Bottom line is we were touched by the beauty of the coutnry and the people and are afraid for it's future.

    Since the 90's the USA (people) has invested a lot of $$ in CR. I don't see Ortega doing much to bully them initially. Things can change though.

    Panama, Guatemala and Venezuela have recently formed a bond together in the UN. Bush has allowed this to go unchecked until recently. The LA countries may further band together before they turn on each other (imo)

    Panama resolved an issue in the UN for Venezula.

    As usual, that is not quite what happened.

    Guatemala, Panama and Venezuela are not in a political alliance.

    If they were, and they were anti-US,
    would you be for it?

    Guatemala, the US choice was countered by Thuggo
    and neither side could get voted in, so Panama was chosen as a compromise

    Read the Jamaicans for a relatively neutral take on it.
