Reliable sources[edit]

Remember those? Is there some reason why those editing this article have such a problem coming up with a source for who is the new VP? There have been any number of reversions back and forth on this alone, but there is also constant introduction of unsourced and often POV content that keeps pouring in from those who seem to think that sources are optional. They are not. Evensteven (talk) 06:36, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Added reliable sources for Alfonso Fuentes Soria's appointment as VP. Regards.--Nerdoguate (talk) 23:53, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 3 external links on Guatemala. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

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.

liberal forces[edit]

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