As an outsider admittedly, the FARC agreeing to end coca growth and drug trafficking, sounds almost too good to be true. Just sayin’. For them to cut off their main source of income kinda defies logic. And for them to “help” President Santos in his reelection bid gets even more fuzzy. Kinda makes you wonder if the FARC and Santos have struck some sort of secret deal. Just sayin’. Hey, but that’s just me.

This beautiful country has been “screwed” for the past 50+ years because of FARC and other guerrilla groups; they deserve a chance to change things, even if they – FARC – cannot be trusted. Zuluaga is not very confident peace can be achieved, obviously, but let’s try Santos again….I personally think he’s a better president, not to mention he has better practice on how to run the country…..
