ABSTRACT
The author considers American involvement in the Nicaraguan social unrest as of May 1985. He believes that the Reagan Administration may be fixated in the socialist and Marxist leanings of the Sandinista Government that it may fail to see the national aspirations of Nicaraguans and eventually lose in the way of the Vietnam war. He claims that Nicaraguans have not been enthusiastic in supporting the American-backed contras. He argues that fears of Nicaragua turning the Caribbean to communism are not founded.
