    Yeah it is pretty baffling. But if you think about things, nobody besides us and maybe a million or so other folks in the world really give a damm about Nicaragua. Nica just isn't relative to most anymore, not even in Central America. I would LOVE to see trade sanctions, it would make them step and fetch PDQ. But I don't think it will ever happen, the Free Zone's, about 45% US owned and 100% them shipping to US customers, would be devastated. Customers such as Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon and others would cry hit-dog-howl, when goods they are selling don't come. Sure, all that capacity can be replaced within about 90 days, if that, but it is still a PIA to do.

    The harness place in Leon makes a shit ton of harnesses that are shipped to Mexico and some incorporated into vehicles in Mexico, which get components and raw materials from the US, and then those vehicles are shipped to the US. Some of the harnesses go into kits being sent to US assembly plants for US assembled vehicles. So that disruption would give a lot of folks the redass as well. I think the "give a shit" factor would be more towards hurting US interests than to rousting the Ortega mob. They will just let Nicaragua sit there and the natural course of events take their place.

    I have given up on guessing what's next.


    As you say no one gives a shit about Nica. Let him Burn it Down.

    Me too...

    DOS rhetoric seems to reflect he believes an American imperialist is hiding behind every stone and Rosario is busily throwing anyone she sees as a threat behind bars until at least the election is "won"

    Every step is not being met with resistance of substance inside or outside the country, so the steps get bolder.

    To what end?

    What is his endgame here?

    The country is cooking along without him.
    He's become an irrelevance.

    Fairly early in the end game of living in the second poorest nation in the Americas I figured out:

    1) I did not create Nic's problems.
    2) I cannot fix Nic's problems
    3) And neither can you.

    Also, somewhere along the line of deprograming myself from the Equality Myth, I figured out that not all individuals, tribes, races, regions, and nations are destined to success.

    Covid was an intelligence test and we flunked.
