"Colombians say, God made our land so beautiful it was unfair to the rest of the world. So to even the score, God populated the land with a race of evil men."
Its easier to fight unarmed families instead organized crime I guess and probably this is why the Colombian Government does happily so many miles within the Jungle instead of just controlling better the ports and its borders, of find the refineries of drugs in the cities.
Prefer coca cola
Depois fo Brazil, a Colômbia é o país mais corrupto da América do Sul, em terceiro lugar a Argentina. A esquerda mantém assim, pois são bandidos.
This is so sad.
This white boy a straight up SNITCH!
No it's not. It moves over the borders, then when it all calms down moves back. If any South American country, and those outside funding them think it's winning, they are not. As seen from Antwerp now being the cocaine capital of Europe. Corrupt governments, police, port authorities, stop that, and maybe win a war.
Simple: the government is owned by the cartel and so is the entire country
the lady cries that she can't feed her children but she doesn't grow potatoes instead of coca. Interesting, huh?
Can’t the government just sell cocaine in the side without anyone knowing and then use those funds to build the roads if they really wanted to help. Sure it’s still cocaine but just enough to get the job done.
I m in support of the ppl. Thats what capitalism is, free trade. Let ppl do this for the benefit of all.
4 years later seems that they arent.
notice how one country affects the many. If everyone of those countries who were having drug problems invest on colombia to build roads
•it would probably greatly reduce the number of drugs illegally being sold in their countries
• helping thousands of people and giving them opportunities to have better lives.
• improving relationships with both countries
we are all connected, we must act as a one country.
In Manipur (India) we plant poppy so that we can afford to buy government jobs😋😎
Hi bro very nice
I don’t think Colombians losing the war you’ve got it wrong
The denovrats give drug dealers in america a free pass yo continue their empire destroying cities States communities and families.
The problem is their government, not the people.
