Here are two recent, lengthy articles available on the web which discuss the current realities and paradoxes in El Salvador:
- Letter From El Salvador: Peter Davis writes in The Nation about the politics and economics of El Salvador. "El Salvador is a series of issues as much as it is a country, and to the degree it is a country it is one where contradictions and extremes rule. As well as paradox."
- For Two Remote Salvadorian Villages, the Iraq War Hits Close to Home: Jacob Wheeler has an extended version on Utne.com of the earlier San Francisco Chronicle story about the family of El Salvador's soldier killed in Iraq and the community where he lived.
