How low can the US stoop in Nicaragua Election
 
It has been reported in Reuters that “Grim television images from Nicaragua's 1980s civil war are being used by conservatives to scare people who would vote for left-wing former rebel and president Daniel Ortega in the Nov. 5 election.TV ads by center-right candidate Eduardo Montealegre and the Liberal Party's Jose Rizo show presidential front-runner Ortega in military garb and, in a separate shot, corpses being loaded onto a truck during the war between Ortega's Sandinista government and U.S.-backed Contra rebels.
 
"With this past, they won't fool you with polls," says Rizo's ad, over shots of fighting and corpses and accounts of Sandinista government troops killing indigenous people and raping women. He's a danger for Nicaragua," booms Montealegre's ad.” (Reuters, October 30, 06).
