"Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega is proposing a referendum to demand the United States pay damages to the Central American country for involvement in its civil war. Ortega says U.S. support for the 'Contras' that fought against his Sandinista government following the 1979 overthrow of dictator Anastasio Somoza caused $17 billion in damages." (07/19/11)
