Posted on 03/22/2009 8:24:06 PM PDT by Flavius
This week the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front, or FMLN, won the presidential election in El Salvador.
The former Marxist rebels, who fought a guerilla war from 1980-1992, are the first leftist party to come to power in the country's history.

The Commies aren’t doing too bad in the U.S. either.
So lets see we have Venezula, Cuba, Russia, and the Chicoms.....And Obama here in the Good ol’ USA! Reminds me of a song lyric....Clown’s to the left of me..Joker’s to the right...Here I am stuck in the Middle...
I guess this means they automatically get “Most Favored Nation” trade status/s
Kind of the same kind of developements when Jimmy Carter was Pres...
“This week the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front, or FMLN, won the presidential election in El Salvador.”
Their last election for a while - until there’s a bloody revolution.
...sheesh...now there’s a lot of work down the tubes.
I know ....but hey if it can happen in Washington DC it can happen anywhere..........:o)
There is a small Cold War ongoing and few people care to realize or comment on it.
El Salvador..elected the Commie Terrs from 20yrs ago
Nicaragua...Ortega in power thanks to money and oil from Chavez
Colombia..Chavez is funding the FARC Commies and arming them.
Ecaudor...Chavez again, they nationalized everything.
Venezuela..the Neo Communists are based there and they are in partnership with Cuba.
That is why Chavez and Castor would love to have strategic Nuclear bombers stationed there, they have their own Neo CommBloc, the Alba.
Good thing we have a staunch anti Communist in the White House...err...uh-oh
All the love from the MSM in the US. It was going to happen eventually, especially after ARENA has held power for so long. What they aren’t saying is that ARENA won the election for city hall in San Salvador. Twenty bucks says that the comies will mess it up and El Salvador will vote ARENA back in.
One of the things that has helped El Salvador has been the continuation of policy under ARENA. They were also quite professional. Now with the comies in power, all that goes to hell. Just like in the US.
My youngest cousin is there on the scene with his traveling friend. They went to the massive outdoor victory party put on by the FMLN and said it was wild.
His traveling buddy is now a school teacher in the DC area, and is a former aid to Dennis Kucinich... which says a lot about her political persuasion.
Let them go Communist. The Latin countries are so dumb, it will accelerate their fall into irrelevance so fast, it will surprise even them.
Is anyone afraid of the basket case known as Cuba? Without the Russians it's a decrepit dump which could probably be defeated in about 15 minutes.
The same is true of the paper tigers like Chavez and Morales.
Caudillo Socialism will be worse then mere Caudillismo.
Latin America has been a showcase for stupid social systems for the last 500 years. This one is just the end game.
In 30 years, standing in the rubble, they will plead for help. Unfortunately for them, we probably won't be around to do so either, for similar reasons.
Maybe if they sell their souls to the Chinese they can get a job.
From the Sino-Russian Joint Statement of April 23, 1997:
"The two sides [China and Russia] shall, in the spirit of partnership, strive to promote the multipolarization of the world and the establishment of a new international order."
War Games: Russia, China Grow Alliance
September 23, 2005
In foreign policy its critical to know thine enemy. So American policymakers should be aware that Russia and China are inching closer to identifying a common enemy the United States.
The two would-be superpowers held unprecedented joint military exercises Aug. 18-25. Soothingly named Peace Mission 2005, the drills took place on the Shandong peninsula on the Yellow Sea, and included nearly 10,000 troops. Russian long-range bombers, the army, navy, air force, marine, airborne and logistics units from both countries were also involved.
Moscow and Beijing claim the maneuvers were aimed at combating terrorism, extremism and separatism (the last a veiled reference to Taiwan), but its clear they were an attempt to counter-balance American military might.
Joint war games are a logical outcome of the Sino-Russian Friendship and Cooperation Treaty signed in 2001, and reflect the shared worldview and growing economic ties between the two Eastern Hemisphere giants. As the Pravda.ru Web site announced, the reconciliation between China and Russia has been driven in part by mutual unease at U.S. power and a fear of Islamic extremism in Central Asia.
Russia, China flex muscles in joint war games
Reuters: Aug 17, 2007
CHEBARKUL, Russia (Reuters) - Russia and China staged their biggest joint exercises on Friday but denied this show of military prowess could lead to the formation of a counterweight to NATO.
"Today's exercises are another step towards strengthening the relations between our countries, a step towards strengthening international peace and security, and first and foremost, the security of our peoples," Putin said.
Fighter jets swooped overhead, commandos jumped from helicopters on to rooftops and the boom of artillery shells shook the firing range in Russia's Ural mountains as two of the largest armies in the world were put through their paces.
The exercises take place against a backdrop of mounting rivalry between the West, and Russia and China for influence over Central Asia, a strategic region that has huge oil, gas and mineral resources.
Russia's growing assertiveness is also causing jitters in the West. Putin announced at the firing range that Russia was resuming Soviet-era sorties by its strategic bomber aircraft near NATO airspace.

Venezuela Set to Develop Nuclear Power With Russia

CARACAS, Venezuela President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that Russia will help Venezuela develop nuclear energy a move likely to raise U.S. concerns over increasingly close cooperation between Caracas and Moscow.
Venezuela's Chavez welcomes Russian warships
Nov 25, 2008
LA GUAIRA, Venezuela Russian warships arrived off Venezuela's coast Tuesday in a show of strength aimed at the United States as Moscow seeks to expand its influence in Latin America. The deployment is the first of its kind in the Caribbean since the Cold War and was timed to coincide with President Dmitry Medvedev's visit to Caracas the first ever by a Russian president.

Russian nuclear bombers in Cuba?
July 23, 2008
The media has been abuzz today at the prospect of Russian nuclear bombers being stationed in Cuba if the US goes ahead with plans for missile defense bases in Eastern Europe.
The story has riled the US enough that a US general has been wheeled out to tell the worlds press that any Russian attempt to build another nuclear base in Cuba would cross US red line.
The story broke earlier this week, when Russian newspaper Izvestia quoted an un-named source from within the Russian military. He told the Russian daily:
While they are deploying the missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic, our strategic bombers will already be landing in Cuba.
The quote hasnt been independently confirmed, but the Russian Defense Ministry added fuel to the fire when they refused to comment on the story.
The prospect of Russian nuclear forces being stationed in Cuba - which is, after all, only 90 miles from the US coast - would bring back some rather unpleasant memories for the US of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, where the Soviet Union under Nikita Kruschev launched an audacious and foolhardy bid to station nuclear missiles on the Caribbean island.
