For a loyal ally

On August 10, the US announced that it will give $45 million over the next 5 years for a program supporting basic health and education. According to press reports, El Salvador's foreing minister stated that the funds would support 100,000 students and 3000 teachers, primarily in rural areas.

At the signing ceremony for agreement, the US ambassador thanked El Salvador for its commitment to continue the presence of 380 troops in Iraq.

Isn't that called a payoff?
