Maria is real as are the atrocities
31 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently met Maria and visited many of the sites where civilians were murdered. The movie is not propaganda. The FMLN was made up of 5 parties, one of which was communist. One out of five. I do not believe in communism. Capitalism isn't perfect but it works. That's why we have the lives that we do in the US. But I do not believe in supporting governments who feel it is okay to exterminate those who do not support their views. Many of the "fighters" in the FMLN were poor civilians who had been suppressed and seen as dispensable by the government. If that wasn't enough, they also murdered nuns, priests, and a bishop. We're the United States of America. The most powerful country in the world and we're afraid of a communist take over? Again, only 1 out of the 5 parties was communist but some how that justified supporting a government with disregard for human rights. Sadly, most of the folks in the US will never leave its soil to see what it really is like in a 3rd world country. Till you have, you have no idea what it's like.
