Who Are the Real Terrorists in Colombia?

An update on "The Good Guys,"TM America's Latin American Allies in the War on Terror

We're running out of friends in Latin America (why should it be any different than the rest of the world?). Colombia appears to be pretty rock solid. And why not? The US is pumping billions of dollars into Colombia, ostensibly to eradicate the growth of coca plants, the spread of the drug trade, and to combat terrorism.

But it turns out that the terrorists are on our side. Three pro-government, paramilitary guerilla armies are on the U.S. State Department’s list of international terrorist organizations, and are responsible for the bulk of civilian deaths of Colombia, even though the US has targeted the leftist FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia). Leftists, let's not forget, are "commies," and therefore "evil."

Even if the good guys kill more people.
