A Google Maps error is being blamed for Nicaraguan troops 
accidentally invading Costa Rica last week.

The troops have been accused of crossing the hotly disputed Nicaragua 
border into Costa Rica and setting up camp for the night after taking 
down a Costa Rican flag and raising the Nicaraguan flag.

But their commander, Eden Pastora, told Costa Rica's largest 
newspaper, La Nacion, that Google Maps was used to 
the incursion. Nicaraguan government officials have also blamed a 
"bug in Google" for the error.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
