The Return of the Sandinistas

For the old Reagan hands in the Bush administration, it's got to be a bit of a nightmare to see the political surge for the Sandinistas in Nicaragua.

Which just follows the trend in Latin America of opponents of US military and economic hegemony winning elections across the region. Add in the loss of power by the BJP in India and most of the developing world is staking out economic, military and social policies quite at odds with the Bush administration.

What is remarkable is that the fixation of the Bush neoconservatives on military power has cost them ideological support around the world. Even as Bush may be bad for economic and social initiatives in the United States, his administration is expanding political support for better policies in other countries.
