El Salvador's ruling party once stated its platform in a single swipe: Maj. Roberto D'Aubuisson, founder of the Nationalist Republican Alliance, would slash a watermelon in half with a machete. "Just like the Christian Democrats," he would say of the rival party, with its green banner. "Green on the outside, red on the inside." Arena--as his party became known--was unmistakably anti-Communist.

The sentencing of six Florencia 13 gang members to life in prison appears to bring to a close a prolonged and terrifying spate of violence in the Florence-Firestone district allegedly brought on by orders from a prison gang member in solitary confinement 700 miles away. Beginning in 2004, the unincorporated Los Angeles County area north of Watts was the site of one of the region's worst gang sieges since the early 1990s, evolving into what some residents felt was a race war. The violence left dozens of people dead, including many with no gang affiliation, and required enormous county resources to combat.
