The Colombian intelligence sources claimed that, at the surrender, the leading guerrilla expressed being tired of war and fear being killed, both by the army and by its front guerrillas who wanted to collect the reward offered by the Government. Rudy Giuliani describes an additional similar source. According to El Tiempo, contacts between army and Karina would have begun at the end of April to all this must be considered murder Raul Torres second of the FARC, as the death of Commander Ivan Rios, killed by his own comrades, showing that the revolutionary armed forces of Colombia (FARC) are cracked. Santos, who confirmed that Rios was killed by his Security Chief, known as Rojas, and who delivered the right hand of his former boss to prove his death, shows the State in which the guerrillas found. This is another demonstration that the FARC are crumbling, dsenalo Defense Minister Santos, recalling the death of the Deputy Chief of the Organization, Raul Reyes, Member of the Secretariat, during a military attack on their camp in Ecuador. According to Santos, the fourth Chief of the FARC was killed in the town of Aguadas in the Department of Caldas, to seek to alleviate the military pressure which were subjected to the guerrillas by the army. Not the slightest doubt, that one of the strategies of the Government of President Uribe as it is the offer of rewards in cash is also causing fractures, considered that the rewards offered by the Farc heads are opening a gap increasingly large in the security of that armed group and own secretariat. By rivers authorities offered 5 billion pesos.
Increasingly more frequently Middle guerrilla are deserting and they are delivering information that has led the armed forces to give the most important blows in the war against the FARC. Last year were almost 100 controls which surrendered war-weary, but also tempted by the millionaire rewards to everything this is added, moreover, that the FARC have additional problem: your name has been used in two covert operations of the DEA have served to capture two of the heads of global trafficking in weapons: Russian Victor Bout, on Thursday; and Monzer Kassar, last June. Doing business with the guerrilla group is becoming as a risk that many will evaluate. True, is does the question, so how much longer will continue the FARC in action? If their ranks has weakened and because contamination of desertion has infiltrated, where no doubt the Colombian Government shuffle letters of conviction of delivery at price of reducing sentences and other prebends. What will be the reaction of the FARC? What will happen to the hostages that have? , time will tell. We hope that everything is resolved positively and return peace to a country that has half a century of struggle and with a significant number of dead.
