Coast Guard dispatching ships and personnel to Costa Rica to threaten in Open Forum - Topics NOT specifially related to Life in Costa Rica Posted July 24, 2010 · Report reply Andy - Why would you want to put this topic to rest? I think it has been an interesting discussion and worthwhile and timely, especially in the light of Venezuela cutting off diplomatic relations with Colombia. I want it put to rest because there are almost NO FACTS surfacing. It's all conjecture, hyperbole, innuendo and in some cases, flat out lies and distortion. It's much worse on CRL, but it seems that all the wackos who either hate the US, hate Obama or think the US is launching a major military assault on Latin America seem to surface to voice their paranoiac rhetoric.
