Follow the money trail and you'll see that Correa and his supporters (the generals in the army included) are in bed with the FARC..... Just follow the money!

Of course Correa doesn't support FARC, just like Chavez doesn't. Just a lot of coincidences, like,-

Gustavo Larrea showed up at Sta Rosa by accident, he was really on an ecotour.

The FARC at Sta. Rosa had Ecuadorian uniforms because of some glitch in the system, pure coincidence.

FARC wasn't supporting Correa when they sent the $20 thousand, it was for future ecotours.

The foreign (Mexican and Chilean) communist party members who were attending the international forum in Quito were also on an ecotour at Sta. Rosa. They were in uniform because it was chic. They were studying to be ecologists. The guns were for protection against big mice.

Miss Calle of Alianza Pais wasn't part of the Communist forum in Quito, she said so. The pictures of her with the organizers and her signature as an Ecuadorian representative were just one of those inexplicable coincidences, just like Raul Reyes just happened to be in Quito and at the forum, seemingly covert, since no one caught him.

And of course, Huguito,(Chavez) sent the $300 million to FARC in exchange for 3 hostages, not for the purpose of supporting them. And the moment of silence for the downed at Sta Rosa was out of his humanitarian love for fellow man, not to be intepreted as support for FARC.

And of course, When Raul Reyes went to Romania in January to buy nuclear material, he traveled with his Venezuelan passport, since he had also become a Venezuelan citizen, and Chavez knew nothing about that.

So many misunderstandings. Some of our illustrius characters from the past have also been misunderstood, like Ghengis Khan, Attila the Hun, the Vikings. More modern persons such as Josef Stalin have also been misunderstood. He only killed 20 million Russians. For Pete's sake, another great marxist, Maok, killed more Chinese people than that!

I just want to say F.....K The USA and F.....K Colombia
Everyone knows that Colombia is doing what the USA tells them to.
But all the US efforts backfire, now all Latinamerican countries are more united than ever.
Wake up America the party is over. A new empire is emerging.

Everyone knows that Correa is doing what FARC tells him to. Unfortunately USA doesn't really pay any attention to Ecuador, especially since 911. Most gringos don't even know where Ecuador is, and don't care. Especially now. I fear Ecuador has lost its' values and will now loose it's liberty.

I think Michelle is right. The U.S. has been ignoring what's happening in Latin American since 9/11, and the Bush administration doesn't have time or really care that much about Latin American. So maybe all this "revolution" against the gringos, and "yanqui imperialist" crap is a cry for help?

Think about the psyschology of it. If one's failure to pay attention to another becomes oppressive in the mind of the the ignored party, what else could it be?

Should the U.S. throw money to Latin Amemrican countries? Should the U.S. support the likes of Chavez?(Idon't think so, he's Latin America's worst enemy, not the U.S's). Tells us how you really feel, Chalo, what do you want? Besides hate, that is.

Odd.

One would have considered
Ecuador having dismantled 47 FARC bases they found on their soil to have been the opposite of support.

$ from Venezuela to FARC, allegedly.
Taking a look at where that number "300" might have come from shows it to be utterly out of context, having no signs of it being about money at all.

Also,
Venezuela negotiating with FARC for release of hostages a sign of collaboration?
Not exactly.
Considering it has been going on AT THE REQUEST OF COLOMBIA.

Never mind the corruption within the Colombian government with their ties to paramilitary death squads. And drugs at virtually every level of government and within the military.

Oh, did anyone notice the presidents of these three countries made their peace already?

Hey Van, Interpol found that the evidence of ties between FARC and Correa and FARC and Chavez (the computer seized from FARC rebels in the Columbian raid into Ecuador)was not tampered with and is indeed true. Commments??

Interpol has NOT determine the information is TRUE... They just state the laptops given to them have not been tampered with... after 2 months... LOL... a whole cluster of laptops could be spoofed.

Why hasn't the Colombian government provided digital images of the laptop's hard drives to investigators sooner and on the internet?

This is a staged NARCO-DOLLAR SHOW.
