Question Costa Rica Fears Iran's Interest in Region: Bookies Watch Closely


Costa Rica Fears Iran's Interest in Region: Bookies Watch Closely

Iran's interest in Latin America is getting a little too close to home, and we are not necessarily talking about the United States. The peaceful military-free Central American nation of Costa Rica finds itself surrounded by leftist sympathizers of Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Costa Rica has the largest concentration of online gambling operators than any other nation.

Unlike the revolutions that tore apart much of Central America during the 1980's, sparing Costa Rica, Iran's influence is being felt in all directions.

Costa Rica and Panama, also home to a scattering of online gambling businesses, are being squeezed by countries that have gradually become accommodating to Iran and its leader.

Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba, Nicaragua and potentially Ecuador (which has been at odds with neighboring Columbia in recent weeks) appear to be solidifying ties with Ahmadinejad.
