Colombia rebel groups Farc and ELN agree 'to unite'


news.bbc.co.uk

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc) and the National Liberation Army (ELN) said they were "on our way towards working for unity".

Farc and the smaller ELN have deep ideological differences and have fought each other in some regions.

Together they could be a significantly greater danger to the state, says the BBC's Jeremy McDermott.

The surprise announcement was made on a website known for its links with the Farc.

This sounds like another revolution in the works. Which if it happens it sounds like another anti U.S. country in south America. If that happens to be the case the new government of Colombia will at least have a few neighbors the can get along with. I also can't help but think if they do oust the current government, how much fighting will go on between them selves after the fact.

This makes me think of all the "revolution" talk in the US. Sure, maybe we can miraculously get the two sides to unite against the government, but then what? Yup, then we fight amongst ourselves again.

It's always good for two enemies to get together to defeat their shared enemy, but in the end, the underlying differences will resurface.

The saddest part is that it's our government and policies that brought them together. What does that say?

We got folks down there. Rangers, SF.. But not a lot of them. This could prove to be a problem for the US as the last thing we need is to actively try to destroy an insurgency FAR more well armed and organized than anything we've face in the Middle East.

Let's just hope peace can win the day.

Edit to add this little Gem:

Sound's like, according to this article, the US seem's to think they've united with some other groups as well.

Monday, December 21, 2009Last Update: 6:03 AM PT Al Qaeda Moves Into Narcotics, DEA Says

ShareThis
MANHATTAN (CN) - Federal prosecutors charged three men with "narco-terrorism," claiming they conspired to move hundreds of kilos of coc aine through Africa to Spain, for the benefit of al Qaeda and the Colombian-based FARC. Oumar Issa, Harouna Toure and Idriss Abelrahman were arrested in Ghana last week and sent to the United States.
"The charges in this case mark the first time that associates of Al Qaeda have been charged with narco-terrorism offenses," the U.S. Attorney's Office said in a statement announcing the arrests and the arrival of the men in the United States.
The men allegedly admitted their trafficking, and the beneficiaries of it, to DEA informants.
The FARC - the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia - Al Qaeda and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Magreb, the alleged beneficiaries, all have been designated foreign terrorist organizations.

They have united with other groups, but it wasnt the U.S. that brought them together.

It was Hugo Chavez.
