The Santos administration’s peace talks with the FARC resumed yesterday in Havana. Maybe they’ll bring this up:
Colombia military seizes anti-aircraft rockets ‘meant for FARC’
Colombia’s military said Wednesday it had seized 16 anti-aircraft rockets which were allegedly destined for the rebel group FARC.
The commander of the Pegasus Task Force, General Luis Fernando Rojas, announced that as well as the rockets which are capable of taking down an aircraft, the army also seized 20 other cargoes and 470 loads of 40mm grenades.
The Russian-made RPG 7V anti-tank rockets were on their way to the 29th Front of the FARC when they were intercepted by the military, Rojas said.
The general stated that the operation was conducted in the municipality of Aldana, which borders Ecuador.
How’s that truce going, folks?
Jim Foley says
Like their totalitarian cousins at ISIS, the FARC executes prisoners by pouring gasoline on them and lighting them on fire. Without the United States Military the world would be a very dark place.

Somewhere Brian Williams is having another flashback…

Will the truce agreement be contingent upon FARC holding to the truce? or will FARC’s gains from this be the new starting point for new negotiations after they resort to their default ways?
Will comments be off in all future posts from you Fausta? 🙁
Sorry about the comments issue Marc, it should be OK on future posts.
Regarding the FARC, IMO this will FARC’s gains from this be the new starting point for new negotiations after they resort to their default ways is the most likely outcome, unfortunately, if Santos can get away with it.
