StrategyPage reports Colombia won the war against FARC, but some of the soldiers instead have morphed (completely and now openly) into criminals, and criminal gangs are taking over where they used to reign.
Sounds like here in the Philippines.
but the report also includes stuff about Venezuela, where China is threatening to ask for their loans to be paid, or else go to US courts to get the money back (from Venezuelan assets outside the country). Also reports on China's infiltration of the South American market.
But the real story that the pro socialist loving types haven't noticed: Lots of Venezuelan refugees.
Neighbors Colombia and Brazil are lining up foreign help for the millions of Venezuelans who may try and flee the starvation and record crime rates in Venezuela. Colombia has counted at least half a million Venezuelans arriving (not all of them legally) in the last six months. Fewer have gone to Brazil but that is mainly because it is easier to get to the Colombian border. The UN is limited in what it can do because Russia and China continue to use their vetoes to block UN efforts to do anything the current Venezuelan government objects to.
