  •  It's Still Happening in Colombia.... (none)
    ....we never stopped falling for it.

    It's like a floating craps game. Whenever it gets busted up one place, it just moves to another back-alley until the heat shows up there.

    •  Troops in Columbia really there for Oil pipelines (none)
      not drugs. Do a little digging, but it might only make you angry.

      •  Make Me Angry? (none)
        Hell, I already AM angry.

        There's oil, there's drugs, there's cattle.

        There's also the "one of the few remaining friendly countries in the region" thing.

        Oil has real value, you're right.

        But never underestimate the right's obsessive fixation on funding death squad activity and the willingness of "moderate" Democrats to go along as long as an excuse like the "war on drugs" is invoked.
