By JAVIER MANJARRESThe United States’ closest ally in South America, Colombia, continues its struggles against the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), after new reports state that the FARC has now added anti-aircraft missiles in their arsenal of weapons.
The FARC, whose roots go back to the Colombian Communist Party of the 1960’s, has been involved in numerous extortions, kidnapping, murdering, and make their living by drug-trafficking, among other illicit activities. Some analysts believe that the FARC, who helped irradiate several drug cartels in the 1990’s, did so simply to able to control the drug trade for themselves.
The terrorist group also continues to contradict itself, when stating that their very existence is to protect the general public from capitalism and government, then turn around and victimize the very people they vowed to protect every time they launch a military operation against the state, that in turn causes significant collateral damage to the population.
Los cientos de millones de dólares que reciben las FARC sólo del narcotráfico les permiten comprar misiles tierra-aire y financiar la construcción de narcosubmarinos”, dijo la cabeza de la delegación del Gobierno de Estados Unidos que opera América Latina
“The hundreds of millions of dollars that the FARC drug only allow them to buy anti-aircraft missiles and finance the construction of Narco-submarines” said the head of the delegation of the Government of the United States that operates in Latin America”
A couple of months ago, representatives from the FARC announce that the group “is back.”[vsw id=”mBYtNAIJcoI” source=”youtube” width=”480″ height=”360″ autoplay=”no”]
