Question

what was the goal of Reagan policy towards Nicaragua?????

2 Answer

  • Defended Nicaragua against invasion. Provided them with intense military and CIA assistance. Needed a way to prove credibility to the international community. Knew they would question the ability to come to their aid if their borders were being attacked.
  • The foreign policy of the Ronald Reagan administration was the foreign policy of the United States from 1981 to 1989. The main goal was winning the Cold War and the rollback of Communism—which was achieved in Eastern Europe in 1989 and in the end of the Soviet Union in 1991, though most disagree with whom to credit, and how much.[1] It was characterized by a strategy of "peace through strength" and an escalation of Cold War tensions 1981-84, followed by a warming of relations with the Soviet Union, 1981-89.
