The “Dictator!!” Somoza
'Zelaya's Sunday deadline for the coup leaders to back down falls on the 30th anniversary of Nicaragua's July 19, 1979, Sandinista revolution that toppled dictator Anastasio Somoza.

SSSHHHH. Don't tell anyone in the MSM, but Anastasio Somoza was legally elected by his countrymen/women in 1974 elections supervised by--get this!--the OAS!--back before they were Castro/Chavez' harem.
And hey! The MSM must be slipping?? What happened to the obligatory "U.S.-Backed" in front of "Dictator Somoza"????
Never mind that the U.S. (Jimmy Carter) slapped an embargo on Somoza's gov., then strong-armed the Israelis into turning around a shipment of arms they'd sent to help him against the Communist Sandinistas--after the Israeli ships had already entered the Caribbean!
