Third threat issued against El Salvador

As the third contingent of Salvadoran troops prepare to head for Iraq next Tuesday, Reuters reports a third threat--this time from the Islamic Tawhid--has been issued via internet:
If you send troops to Iraq we will not be merciful nor will we refrain from responding and your fate will be hell. We advise the people of El Salvador not to send their sons to Iraq as we only understand the language of rigged cars and blood. This is just one of several simple messages we have sent to countries that have sent troops to Iraq.
Meanwhile, the FMLN continues to protest the move--as the picture above taken outside the Legislative Assembly by Diario Colatino documents--but they'll never have the votes to stop the policy.
