|Summary||Our three guests are engaging but, unfortunately, not completely fluent in English. The result is some good moments mixed in with a good deal of floundering. Examiner* Christopher Hitchens: "Was I wrong in getting the idea that nothing will satisfy you but the removal of the FSLN--Sandinista--government from power in Managua?" Mr. Ramirez: "No. Only a true democratic system will satisfy us. They can remain with their party if they want. That's not a problem.... So what we want is for them to dismantle the totalitarian system they have been trying to implement... Dismantle the ration cards which they use to control the population; dismantle the security system they have--we call it CDS, the committee of defense in the slums--that they use to repress the people; that they separate the state from the party, the army from the party."|
