Ubico section[edit]

The Ubico section seems a bit unbalanced to me. While it (correctly) notes that his regime was oligarchical and guilty of grave human rights abuses, it omits a lot of facts. Ubico was initially (at least during the first six years of his regime) very popular (of course, he was widely despised by the mid-forties); he virtually eliminated crime and corruption in Guatemala; he contributed substantially to the development of the country's infrastructure (the number of roads increased almost five-fold and Guatemala became an exporter of several crops that it previously imported); etc. Ubico had his good and his bad traits. I'm not saying that his good traits cancel out the bad ones or that we should overstate them while downplaying the bad, but it would be nice if a more complete picture of him and his regime was presented.

I disagree on this. They were fascistic and oligarchical and emphasizing the truth doesn't need to be balanced with untruths.YatesByron (talk) 20:46, 7 November 2016 (UTC)YatesByron

liberal forces[edit]

article assumes I recognize this name. Is this a liberal party or the forces of liberation, or?

Grammatical Question[edit]

...a United Nations-backed prosecutor described the administration of Pérez Molina to a crime syndicate...

Depending upon what the original writer meant, this should probably read either, "...a United Nations-backed prosecutor described the administration of Pérez Molina as a crime syndicate..." or, "...a United Nations-backed prosecutor compared the administration of Pérez Molina to a crime syndicate..."
