Say, isn't the US SF consistently engaged in Columbia? Anyone wanna tell me more about this?

And in the 80's, wasn't there trouble down there? Didn't the US send marines or something?

FARC and the AUC are at war and the government is In the Middle of It. What more is there to say, the US supports the government with SF, while the government has done little to actually stop either orginization from causing terror throughout the state. The AUC has done a better job with dealing with FARC then the government, and you will find people who will claim the US SF is somhow involved with Castano, just as they did when Los Pepes were around.

BTW, whats the latest on Castano? Ive heard everything that he was assasinated to he's hiding In Israel.

Delta Force helped kill Pablo Escobar, who was a drug dealer, and Los Pepes helped out in his capture.

Only if you read Bowden's accounts, and even that is a stretch

The only Bowden I read is Black Hawk Down (great read) but I saw a documentary on the History channell called "Killing Pablo" it was sweet.

Yea I seen that too. The deltas trained the guys but I believe the real credit goes to the columbians who were kickin the doors down.

Pablo Escobar, leader of the Medellin cartel right, i knew the army snipers who brought down the top officals in his cartel, well actually i only know one of them but he is pretty cool.

and back to first topic, which problem in Columbia.

Columbia's main exports- 45% Cocaine, 45% Arms(guns), 10% Pot.

that export part was a joke, so if you are Columbian don't take it personal.

Anyone want to fill me in on the conflict that occured down there back in the 80's? South America somewhere?

Which one? There is always a civil war somewhere in South America?
And no I don't recall any Marines being deployed to any "conflict" there in the 80's.

There was Gerneda (I think I spelled that right), but that's Carribean and not South American.
