Sandinistas Still Have Support in Nicaragua

I find this column interesting. The commission cited by the author states that the Sandinista armed forces "apply the law without rigor or consistency."When I was in Nicaragua in July, I became aware of the lack of laws to enforce. The country is in chaos after 10 years of war, and to expect any government to establish a peaceful society in the midst of economic disaster is unrealistic. During my visit, I attended events in Esteli, Matagalpa, and Managua celebrating the Revolution, and I was struck by the enthusiastic support for the FSLN [Sandinistas] shown by huge crowds of people. The Nicaraguans have a multi-party system: If we leave them alone, they will sort things out. Mary Markus, Garden Grove, Calif.
