The Fall of El Salvador

Another day, another once-promising Latin American country falls to smiley-face communism.

Does it seem like our sprightly new administration is in the least bit concerned?

The Obama government has assured Salvadorans it would work with any leader elected — a marked departure from the Bush administration, which in 2004 suggested that an FMLN victory would hurt ties.

Of course not.

Why disagree with ideological comrades?

And in case you were wondering if El Salvador is just some insignificant little isthmus:

Close U.S. ties saw El Salvador keep troops in Iraq longer than any other Latin American country and become a hub of regional cooperation with Washington against drug trafficking. The country’s economy depends on billions of dollars sent home by 2.5 million Salvadorans who live in the U.S.

Sounds like the Spain of Central America.
