ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the post-modern conflict between Costa Rica and Nicaragua. It says that the conflict, which is being fought in the media and diplomatic area, came as Costa Rica President Laura Chinchilla accused Nicaragua for invasion as Nicaraguan soldiers hoisted their flag and clear trees in Isla Calero for their mission. It adds that Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega gains political advantage from the conflict for accusing Costa Rica as over aggressive and menacing.
