Ronald Reagan is lying about Nicaragua. Those who have gone to find out the truth for themselves have returned from Nicaragua with a picture very different from the distorted image propagated by this administration. The official falsehood has become a great conspiracy of lies designed to confuse the American public and to provide the rationale for more direct U.S. military intervention in Nicaragua.
If the U.S. invades Nicaragua, thousands of U.S. citizens are promising massive public resistance.
The not-so-secret war being waged by the CIA against the people of Nicaragua has already exacted a heavy toll in lives, resources, and human suffering. The principal tactic of the U.S.-backed contras is terrorism; therefore, the casualties are highest among civilians.
