No accounting for taste

Proof positive that popularity contests are about as meaningful as, well, Ronald Reagan's policies towards Latin America. The former, now deceased, US President may have helped "restore American morale", but he was also involved in the sales of arms to Iran while diverting the funds to the vicious Nicaraguan Contras. In other words, a true believer in freedom and democracy.

The anniversary of the international ruling on the whole contra business was earlier this week. A rather illuminating story, really.

There's a good overview (as always) at Wikipedia.

Very interesting, thanks for that, didn't know there was a recent anniversary.
Reagan's 'work' in Latin America was sold as spreading democracy and yet he was spreading terror. History repeats itself, really.
