Full story: Las Vegs Sun

El Salvador will send 380 troops to Iraq later this week to replace a unit weakened by the deaths of two soldiers and the wounding of four others, defense officials said Thursday.

I am so sorry Abigail but I just can't understand your questions. But anyways just to let you know, When It comes to terrorisms I think we all shall look out for each other!! Just to let you know that there's nearly three millions of salvadorians in the United States and I think we are part of this great country. I am from El Salvador and I feel proud that my country Is still sending soldiers to Iraq Re-constructions and we are that only country from latin america that still got troops In Iraq ever since that war started and It is a shame that every other country abandoned the U.S. Thats just my comment!

Thanks for your comments Zito. But I would really appreciate, If you could be a little more polite & just to let you know when It comes to politics you got It speak up. I don't know If you know much about History, But my country El Salvador lived twelve years of civil war, and It were the terrorists that were trying to take over the country. But affortunately It din't happened. And I was there, I served seven years In the salvadorian Air Force & now I'am a politic of my country and an EXPERT ANALIZE of the National University Of El Salvador. If you don,t know pretty much El Salvador belongs to this country. It's hard when people don't know much about politics. But I just hope you feel part of this country too. I mean If this is where you're living. Wish you good luck in your future and God Bless You!! sinc; juan carlos. birmingham al.

I totally agree with you Juan Carlos. We are all in this together.I am not salvadorian, but I am serving this country. I have been for 5 years now. I have three tours to Iraq under my belt and it is no joke. I think your people are brave for what they are doing even though they have threats towards El salvador, but you know that is what it's all about. And zito,by the way you sound so fucking ignorant. Do something for yourself man, since you sound like you do nothing for this country.

Since all the gangs think they so macho and gangsters and all. I have a great idea...let's put a parachute on their backs...give them an M-16 and airdrop their asses into Iraq..I guarantee they would ALL pee in their pants and want their mommy...boo hoo hoo..By the way if they met real Italian mobsters they would pee in their pants again..It's easy to shoot from a car at people that don't shoot back and are unarmed...ALL gangs are a bunch of pussies..

Juan carlos, I respect you for what you stand for, I came to the US back in 1970, served the USAF for 4 years later on, I love this country because it is the best in the world and I will defend it to my death. I don't know who in the hell this ZITO guy is, but I imagine that he is here only for the goodall dollar, if you live here (legally), you got to stand for this country, I am also proud that El Salvadoran troops are helping the USA in Iraq.
Love it or leave it Mother Fs.

Some of you guys don't really know much as to why El Salavador must keep providing soldiers if the Bush administration solicits it. You must understand that the Reagan administration aided the confrontation and defense program against the socialist crowd during the period of the Civil War. Those of you who reside in the US I believe have a commitment with the country who provides for you. In the contrast, those who do not live and are barely making it in other parts of the world have no compromise with an US cause.

To date fuck it! you still have not find or located any weapons of mass destruction... the world knows that the target was oil! It is fact Americans take oil for granted and its a shame some of you guys make comments being ignorants of many aspects in the life of El Salvador. One thing is certainly well known here at home (El Slavador), when the US tells or asks El Salvador to jump, it is not a matter of when to do it but a question of how high yhe US wants him to jump!

With the memory of the civil war in El Salvador, how can teenage american born young adults, understand Iraq. War to american in their early 30's is nothing more than a video game. A complete destruction or failure and pain is loosing life and you increase in level. You and well of europeans have no stomach to defend life (example: Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, etc.) As long as peoples starbucks coffe and low gas prices are not missing then who cares about weomen being treated as slaves in Iraq, Iran, children are nothing more than soldiers as soon as the are 12. But how is at fault, Bush - America? Well I'll tell you, look in the mirror and see who really is sending troop to Iraq. Then LOOK AT YOUR HOME, if you possed ANYTHING MADE OF PLASTIC that will eventualy end up in the trash THEN YOU ARE GUILTY. TVs, Radios', Computers, Cell Phones, Tosters, Microwaves, Toothpaste Tubes, Hairbruch, tires, cars, children toys, pampers, cups, hamers, Satelite Tv Antenas, Clothes, Copiers, Airconditioners, Subways, Busses, Airplanes, space veheclies, etc... If there is plastic in it you need oil. And in America if it is cheap then it is good. Americans cry to end the war, becuase they have no stomach to win, if it isn't as fast as winning on a playstation. No One Remembers that Japan, Germany & Korea took decades of US involvement and not 4 years. These contries are strong democracies and economies. But young American can wait, they need instant gratification. Then to thant I say What Is The Difrence Between A Murder An He That Is Standing Near An Can Stop Him, When He Commits The Murder? American and Europe have an obligation to the world for all that they have taken (resources, colonial occupation) and defend the week.

I am American, Carlos, and I'm glad you spoke up. I am proud of El Salvadorians who speak up and show how proud they are to be in this country. I know a few native born Americans who could take a lesson from you and could use a little passion for their own home land. Just wanted to say that:)

Vicor, your comment is the most interesting and un-bias, as it is factual. We are only paying for the 1 million dollar allocation we received from the US during those 12 years the civil war lasted. And it is a shame that Saca and all previous sell-out presidents take pride in having all the money send by Salvadoran/US residents be 60% of their economy. Those are the same Salvaran representatives willing to sell their constituents by sending them to Irak. Thruh is it is either China or the US taking over the oil, however atleast have the courage to say we are sending salvarans to fight in Irak in exchange for money. But I forgot, Salvaran politicians do not undrstand the meaning of courage, nor loyalty nor honor.

If a country receives any financial or social help from the US, I think its appropiate to help the US in the Middle East...and yes even though it means going in there for the wrong reasons. You take the cash, you have to pay back...that goes for any country that receives monetary help from the US...You don't like the US, stop accepting the help and SHUT UP! See how well you do by yourselves. Born in the USA and proud to be an a first generation American!! "Only the strong survive"- General Douglas MacArthur
