USA and Nicaragua

The USA supports and arms the corrupt dictator Anastasio Samoza in Nicaragua. The USA's President Roosevelt says of Samoza: "Somoza may be a son of a bitch, but he's our son of a bitch."

The Samoza family amasses a huge fortune and crush dissent ruthlessly. Although Anastasio is assassinated in 1956, the dynasty continues.
