    What is it with Nica's?
    Is it "Jodido pero contento"?
    Or have they simply never known real freedom?

    And apparently and entire contingent of PN has descended to his house over the last hour.

    Leaders of UPANIC (Agriculture union) and CANATUR (Tourism board) have been summoned to visit the prosecutor as well.

    POS & Co. have the full certainty that Nicaragua matters just below the level of whale shit on the ocean floor to the US. And that really kinda is the case. POS could be outta power in Nicaragua in about 72 hours or so if the US kicked them off the swift deal with banks and also suspended the duty free access of imports from Nicaragua under the CAFTA. 100K people would be outta a job in hours and the shit would hit the fan faster than a cheetah with a hot foot. But in reality nobody truly cares and those with business interests in Nicaragua have enough of a tiny bit of sway to fend off drastic measures were they ever to be truly considered. Of course, about 60% of the for export business owners in Nicaragua are Asian, mostly Chinese and Korean, with slightly more Koreans. But they are tied to big Chinese outfits.

    I am just amazed, truly amazed that the Cord has held up. I don't understand how.

    " . . .I am just amazed, truly amazed that the Cord has held up. I don't understand how.... "


    It's the $2 billion in remesas that go straight into the hands of the people.
    Plus, exports have been good, coffee is up nicely this year.

    Any EU or US economic sanctions Could turn the country into another Cuba or Venezuela.
    Or Syria. None of those were successes.
    No one wants that.

    If Ortega blocks the Pan Am in retaliation, life gets difficult for all of CA

    Something precise, like meat exports (climate changers, vegans, and Indian lovers would be ecstatic) might create sufficient internal pressure without increasing overall poverty figures.


    But as RGV and others say,, "Who cares ?"

    No One cares and that is what Ortega is missing, Nicaragua produces little of value that cannot be found elsewhere, in his mind Nicaragua is some kind of player, in what Universe I cannot figure out.

    Lot of Nicas abroad grudgingly send that monthly check as he is the reason they left 40 yrs ago and the reason they have not returned. Pre 2006 I met tons of Nicas that were dual citizens, SS checks coming in, retirement funds, and were looking to move back "home", the 2006 elections persuaded them to stay in the "promise Land", return for visits now and then.

    You could almost say it (Nica's departing) is a desired result as an expat Nica will almost for sure "send back" more cash to Nica than they would ever actually contribute to the economy itself if they stayed.

    100's of thousands of Expat Nicas doing that each and every month.

    Exactly, every Nica that flees is a win for them.
