    Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega did not mention the United States in his statement on the tensions, but the country’s former ambassador to the United Nations, Julio Izaco Gallard, warned this weekend that tensions had put Nicaragua and other Latin American allies of Iran in a “delicate situation” as the U.S. could start attacking Iranian-backed terrorist cells operating in those territories.

    “Iran’s threats of revenge put Nicaragua in a very delicate situation because our alliance with them makes us a potential target,” he explained. “It is a situation that can escalate and there could hypothetically be measures that hinder the freedom of Nicaraguans to travel to the United States.”


    Uh,, Duh. ???

    Send that 40% of your current export to Venezuela and see how it goes.

    Or, to Iran. They don't have any hard currency, spent the $$ billions that Obama gave them,, but they could pay you in pistachios. Their Rial is as bad off as the Bolivar.

    Or, to Cuba. They'll pay you in . . . .. (Hmmmm,, let me get back to you on that one).

    Bolivia and Ecuador are gone,, who did I miss ?

    Mr. Pirate, I confess I don't understand what you're getting at w.r.t. exports and the fiscal scene in relation to the Breitbart quote on the Iran-Trump ruckus, but I found what Julio Izaco Gallard, Nicaragua’s former ambassador to the United Nations, said as alarming news:
    There are Iranian-backed terrorist cells operating in Nicaragua.
    Hezbollah? Operating? Does that tie to your comment of 5 days ago,
    US government people still ... haven't forgotten Iran's jungle warfare training center in the RAAN.
    I knew there are Russkies and their old tanks around somewhere, and then there's the Chinese PLA building the phantom canal, but Iranian-backed terrorist cells? How is it I see nothing awry in Nicaragua?


    The whole Iran brouhaha turned surreal at the 'end', when, it seems, the Iranis 'accidentally' shot down a Ukrainian Boeing 737 taking off from Tehran, being as Ukraine is the current focus of Trump's "impeachable" offences (to Dems). Of the 180 on-board, a third were Canadians and the rest Ukrainians, who probably all looked like Americans to some trigger-happy fanatic. One wonders what they were all doing in Iran anyway, with so many boycotts in place?

    If Trump knew that Soleimani had dirt on Hillary, he'd still be alive.
