Colombia has come a long way, has it not? All praises to their military for their cunning, courage and competence! They deserve our respect and admiration. Too bad Screecher of the House Pelosi & Company has no regard for them or for their efforts. Our Democratic Congress prefers the mafia-controlled Labor Unions to free Colombians taking back control of their country and destiny. There's a helluva lot wrong with this picture!
