'Approaches to the Americas'

April 13, 1986

Fuentes' article on Nicaragua has patently characterized him as being naive, an ideologue or a communist sympathizer.

We went through the same stories with Fidel Castro who passed himself off as a democrat and would establish Cuba with a pluralistic type of government.

Instead he gave us a missile crisis and sent combat troops to Angola and Ethiopia as a proxy army for Russia. Central America is much too close to us for another Cuban installation.

Failure to fund the contras will eventually force us to send in the Marines.

The application of the Monroe Doctrine still makes sense.
