"They were called the FARC, a communist guerrilla fighting whoever was in power, and now baptized the cocaine cartel. Financed by drugs, this corrupt guerrilla movement still retains the support of western powers, and even ill-informed charity organizations”. L´Express Magazine-France
Summarizing this book:
This thesis is an analytic proposal, informing public opinion of the threat for republican stability represented by a subversive group moving boldly within the drug market.
The FARC Cartel is a criminal group with terrorist capacity, and thanks to drug traffic it has achieved a strong economic position and this is important in modern war.
What were previously suppositions and subjective appraisals have turned out to be an objective reality that can be verified and measured.
This reality hovers as a new threat of total war where all shades of criminals will profit.
In operations against the FARC bandits at the end of January 1996, the Army confiscated documents in Caquetá that conclusively prove that this group is the third and most dangerous of the drug cartels in Colombia. This is because the rapidly growing funds of the terrorist organization will be used to equip fronts who have received political and ideological formation from the Communist party which also defends them from a position of legality, and fosters the underhand publicity supporting the sinister narco-subversion alliance.
Logical suppositions give way to documental proof during a historic period when warfare is dominated by economics rather than ideology or geography. The FARC political agents sensed that money had the overwhelming potential to rapidly destabilize the country. To this end, they encouraged the subversión to systematically attack the legal order via well trained guerrillas with a terrorist capacity.
The process whereby the FARC became the third Cocaine Cartel is gradual and progressive. Having no experience in drug trafficking, the first step was to charge the drug mafia for protection, and then they perfected the business to the point of becoming rivals with a greater power of survival.
