OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere’s a short post for my Colombian friends concerning the peace agreement between the government and the FARC rebels. I think Colombians should be worried that this isn’t going to work. Firstly because part of it is going to depend on more money from the U.S. and I don’t think that’s going to happen as quickly as they hope. It’s too close to the election and I think Congress will want to wait to see what the new administration has to say. And of course if Trump gets elected all bets are off. Another reason is a simple one you’re taking a group of basically uneducated gunmen and telling them to go get minum age jobs. Now I know Americans have all watched a movie or TV show where the poor local boy is recruited into a life of crime because the gang members make more in a day then he can in a month working for minum wage. The government in its deal with the FARC to let them into politics will play right into the hands Timochenko who was educated in Russia and Cuba. I can see not peace and tranquility in Colombia’s future but rather political chaos and possibly a coup. So voting no for the agreement might be saving Democracy in your country. But what do I know I’m just an old cat. This is Flounder (Still running for President) saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
