FARQ, Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia, camps out under the triple canopies in remote areas of Venezuela’s tropical forests collecting money from drug trafficking, selling gold and kidnapping for ransom. The communist leaders of Venezuela allows them impenetrable cover in exchange for help to overthrow Columbia – a republic. An issue of little importance to the U.S., this is yet another potential border war, albeit not imminent. Brad Johnson, former CIA operative and president of Americans for Intelligence Reform, brings a little known issue to light as another area to watch.
This cross border war has been ongoing ever since Chavez came to power around 21 years ago and continues to grow in its intensity. Thank you for putting it in the spotlight Brad.
