One of My Heroes

Augusto Sandino, killer of US Marines, hero of Latin America.

Augusto Sandino. Led a guerrilla war in Nicaragua against the US Marine occupiers of the US colony of Nicaragua. We never caught him. The US Marines were sent down there to make a colony out of Nicaragua to preserve the interests of US big business, which was to keep Nicaragua as a US colony and keep the Nicaraugan people subject, starving, poor and barefoot and enslaved to America.

He’s perhaps the greatest hero of the vast majority of Nicaraguans, and he is revered as a hero all over Latin America for fighting the US imperialists.

The Sandinistas took their name after the hero. Imperialist America never forgets her slights and never forgives the heroes who stand up against her imperial meddling and bullying. The Sandinista national anthem had lyrics that went something like, “America, enemy of mankind.” I love it!

      1. Yes, I agree. The US has never done one single positive thing in the whole of Latin America. All it is has ever done down there is bad, bad, bad, bad. Nothing but sick rightwing crap from 1848 on. No decent liberal should ever support US foreign policy in Latin America in any way, shape or form.

      2. Latin Americans do plenty of that to each other. They are their own worst enemy. Hell, in 1969, Honduras and El Salvador went to war over a fucking soccer match. Thousands of civilians ended up dying.

        Here is your homework assignment: Find out why Bolivia is a land-locked country. They weren’t always one.
