Today -100, December 9, 1909: Of pro-Americanism in Nicaragua


Sloooow news day. The fighting in Nicaragua too is in a lull. The NYT says “President Zelaya, recognizing the growing sentiment in Nicaragua favorable to the revolutionists and to the part the United States is playing in the contest, has recently been making every effort to incite the people to anti-American demonstration. These efforts have been utterly futile, and nothing but fear of him prevents a pro-American demonstration.” Ain’t it the way. At any given moment, pro-American demonstrations are about to spontaneously break out all over the world, but something always gets in the way.
