Recent List of Attacks by the Defeated FARC

I received this list of attacks from a pro-FARC website. It was written in Spanish and I had to translate it all into English, so it took a little while. The MSM all over the world is crowing that the FARC is near defeat and total collapse. They are said to be at their lowest level since 1964, when they only had a few dozen fighters. That’s an interesting assessment considering that the FARC has about 18,000 forces under arms and probably another 55,000 militia.

All I can say is these guys fight pretty good for a force that is nearly defeated.

There are those on this site who support the Colombian government. I ask them what the Left in Colombia is supposed to do. Everyone on the Left in Colombia is automatically accused of either being a member of the FARC (dubious, and if it’s true, just arrest them) or being FARC supporters. How can you tell if someone is a FARC supporter? Is it illegal to be a FARC supporter, and anyway, how could such a law ever be enforced?

The truth is that if you are on the Left in Colombia, you are automatically accused of a relationship with the FARC, no matter how you feel about them. At some time, you may well be at first denounced by the army and/or the paramilitaries. At this point, if you have not gone into hiding, you can be attacked at any time. Keep in mind that even legal politicians who have no relationship with the FARC at all are liable to be murdered in Colombia.

Colombia is ruled by a genocidal oligarchy that stays in power by threatening and often killing those who oppose them. As such, it’s no democracy at all.

The truth is that the attacks on the Left in Colombia have little to do with the FARC. After all, those slaughtered are unarmed activists. It’s just, identify the Commies (the Left), and then, kill the Commies (the Left). It matters not whether you pick up a gun or not, if you’re on the Left in Colombia, you’re a target.

Some argue that the FARC should disarm. But why should they do that? The last time they tried to do that, they formed a party called the Patriotic Union and 5,000 of them were murdered over a period of several years. Given that, why would the FARC lay down their arms again (keep in mind they have made cease-fires with the state in the past). The supporters of the Colombian state on this site do not seem to have any arguments. If you do, please speak up. Violent revolution isn’t exactly ideal, but what’s the alternative?
