$100 Million to Aid Nicaragua's Contras: Pro and Con

July 06, 1986

I have relatives in Nicaragua. I have talked with my nephew who with his family was able to escape to Costa Rica. Nicaragua is not a helpless little Central American country! It is well equipped militarily, so well that it could move successfully and take over other countries. Nicaragua is a Kremlin base of operations.

Evidently you do not see Afghanistan, Hungary, Ethiopia, the Balkans, Poland and others as "dirty little wars."

You, on occasion, play up the statement: "If we give aid to the contras , we'll soon be having to send military forces to fight in Nicaragua." If the United States does not aid the contras , we'll have a real war on our hands.

We are on the way to losing the Panama Canal when we do not stop communism in Nicaragua.
