IT was Ronnie Reagan's regime that propped up psychopathic right wing governments in central America ,invited them to the United States and gave them legitimacy by calling them friends of America and covertly supplied them with CIA training and US military equipment, which these monsters used to kill over 300,000 of their own people while Reagan was in power. Reagan was so anti communist he was prepared to kill every living man ,women and child ,innocent are not in Central America, which he claimed falsely is where it was spreading.
Reagan's power his presidency ,obtained by committing treason against his country, by colluding with the Ayatollah of Iran to hold American hostages till the 1980 elections were over to make President Jimmy Carter look weak and ineffectual. Reagan in the end turned to be a mass murderer passed off by his right wing spin masters and the corporate owned media as a stern but gentle and kind doddering old man. Nothing could have been further from the truth.
