    Daniel Ortega's security forces and paramilitary "Shock Forces" launch "Operation Clean-up", attacking peaceful demonstrators and killing hundreds of civilians. As some of my Nicaraguan friends and colleagues weep for their country and their loved ones, I wonder for how long the world can stand by, watch, and do nothing, while Latin American leaders like Ortega and Venezuela's Maduro continue to egregiously violate human rights.

    A few human rights group try to shine a spotlight on the situation, with little success, and the toothless UN feebly calls for "an end to violence", but the attacks on civilians - and the members of the clergy who try to mediate for them - continue to escalate and are mostly ignored by the rest of the world.

    I wonder, where is the outrage? Has government sponsored violence become acceptable to the point that we all turn a blind eye and let it be while saying and doing nothing?

    For far too long.

    But hey, some Latin American countries signed some strong worded letter, that will teach Ortega and Maduro.
