Red Dawn Alert: Russia’s top general in Nicaragua to revitalize Cold War-era military cooperation, rubs elbows with President Ortega, opens training center for Nicaraguan army, named after Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Zhukov; Sandinistas returned to power in 2007, rebuilt 1980s dictatorship, relations with Cuba, embraced Venezuela’s Chavezista regime, renovated strategic bomber-capable air base at Punta Huete

So, with the shopping mall regime, MSM and FBI distracted by the threat of Chechen terrorism on US soil, and no doubt emboldened by the election of Hugo Chavez’s anointed successor in Venezuela, Moscow is quietly rebuilding its Cold War-era military-political linkages with Cuba and Nicaragua. But, hey, it’s OK, ’cause communism’s dead . . .
