About this video

In this conference Félix Maradiaga explains basic principles and ideas regarding national security, national defense, and its relationship to government expenditure in order for think tanks to take into consideration for their analysis. He describes how governments have used this public asset as an excuse for squandering enormous amounts of money that belongs to the national treasury for their own benefit.   Maradiaga comments on the Nicaraguan case and focuses on the military expenses that were made and the plans that the government implemented.
