Who says Latin America is swinging to the left?

President Tony Saca's El Salvador - which, in a pathetic, banana republic attempt to curry favor with Washington, has a convoy of troops in Iraq - is now bringing a part of Southwest Asia (incorrectly labelled the "Middle East" in mainstream discourse) back home: training by the Israel Defense Forces.

According to YNet News, the IDF is being sought to help "in building a modern and efficient army" for El Salvador.

No word on whether the IDF will also provide counsel on colonial dispossession and how to bulldoze homes with people inside of them.

And for the irony record, Mr. Saca is the descendant of Palestinian immigrants.

Well, just because this asshole isn't swining to the left doesn't mean Latin America isn't.
