ABSTRACT
This article calls for an end to the civil war in Nicaragua. Nicaragua has been ruled by the authoritarian regime of General Anastasio Somoza for more than 40 years. His government is corrupt and is able to rule the country only under heavy support from the U.S. The opposition to Somoza's regime is composed of democrats, businessmen and communist. It is in the interest of both the U.S. and Nicaragua to end the civil. The U.S. can help stop it by supporting a moderate opposition that is anti-communist.
