Latin American patriots and allies, show your solidarity, support revolution in the Americas, a phenomenon which has been spreading like a wildfire for the past half century. It is now Colombia!

To all American patriots, North or South....

The U.S. interest in Colombia is not a "War on Drugs" but a War against the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia- People's Army (FARC-EP), which is nothing new, but have been successful in mobilizing the most oppressed of the population (60% of Colombia is liberated); against a typical, corrupt South American U.S. puppet government that leaves the vast majority of its people to live in hellish conditions of poverty, violence and despair.

The U.S. can no longer intervene "to maintain democracy from Soviet backed aggression" (there never was) so it is now trying to "maintain 'democratic' institutions from narcotraffickers".

The role of drugs for imperialism is not a recent phenomenon. The Spanish used the coca leaf to make the natives work for days on end without food, water or sleep; while the British used opium to impoverish the Chinese on the other side of the world. Now the U.S. use cocaine to devastate the Andes while using it as a social control mechanism at home.

In the U.S. the oppressed Hispanic and Black communities no longer join organizations like the Young Lords and the Black Panthers as they did back in the 60s, because they're too busy shooting themselves with guns and needles.

However, in their "backyard" (Latin America), they have always had a lot of trouble trying to control those "little brown people" from revolting all over the place and from being too loud just in case people from other parts of the world heard them and got funny ideas like "revolution". The U.S. corporate owned mass media largely ignores Latin American radicalism.

The latest, the FARC, has indeed; become a formidable force to reckon with.

In short, it is a "War for Drugs". The most important resource that is rarely ever mentioned.

(Currently doing research on the subject)

With Che Guevara, Jose Marti, and Simon Bolivar.
