What Colombian Marxists are upto!

Wherever they may go, Marxists are upto their old mischief: fomenting anarchy. Maoists are nothing but their rancid progeny. The good deeds of Hugo Chavez and its effect on Colombia just got exposed. Well, almost.
The FARC are in some ways a throwback to a past era in Latin America. In other ways they are part of the new face of organised crime in the region. Old-fashioned Marxists unmoved by the collapse of the Soviet Union, they have flourished since then by drug-trafficking and kidnapping. Their war against Colombia's elected government has almost no public support, especially since they showed no interest in making peace during three years of talks with the government from 1999 to 2002.(emphasis added)

Some things never change.
