Alek Boyd of VCrisis has a fascinating bit of breaking news up about President Alvaro Uribe of Colombia handing over to the Venezuelan government a list of FARC Marxist narcoterrorists.
To those of us from afar, it might not look like anything earth-shattering. But it is.
President Uribe is one of the most effective terror fighters in the world today, a man with Bush-like and Sharon-like resolve to stomp out some of the world's most savage organized killers. Like them, he's taking a huge risk by doing it. And he's winning big.
Over the weekend, it came to light that he was fighting his country's monstrous terrorists whenever, wherever, they wander on this earth. Not surprisingly, that led straight to Marxist dictator Hugo Chavez's capital Caracas. Some news reports and diplomatic sources say one of these guerrillas went not only to Caracas, but to the presidential palace itself for a visit. But what the guerrilla didn't do was escape the reach of President Uribe, who paid bounty hunters to snatch the brutal leftist thug back from Caracas to Colombia to face justice.
The deed certainly made Chavez apocalyptic. He broke off commercial relations and recalled his ambassador. Uribe wasn't fazed. He warned Chavez he was the injured party in this, and called for a public meeting about why Marxist narcotrafficantes were walking freely in Chavez's Bolivarian paradise. Chavez wasn't up for that.
But President Uribe doesn't back down.

He really is as brave as Bush, one of the few leaders in this world fit to stand side by side with our president. They've tried to kill him over 100 times. They killed his father. They shot his voters as they waited in line to elect him. They bombed the capital on his inauguration day. They are the foulest creatures on earth.
And he is a solid as a rock. He never budges. He doesn't fear what they try to do to him. He has the tear-dripping love of his people, the highest popularity of any leader in Latin America. He makes grown men cry. When he gets on an American Airlines flight to travel (unlike Chavez he doesn't have his own luxury jet, he flies airlines like the rest of us), the whole passenger section and crew stand up to applaud. They know how courageous he is. They know he is out to crush all of their enemies like bugs. He only cares about victory. And he will have victory.
Excellent report on the HOW and WHY of the resurgence of international terrorism (WORLD REVOLUTION)--TTS
If both Uribe and Chavez run for reelection next year, can either of them be beaten?
Not legally. Uribe is way too popular, the kind of leader who only comes along once every 200 years. He is a true hero, a real man, a blazing star and a wellspring of pride for all real Colombians.
As for Hugo, his case is a little different. He's got the courts stacked with his cronies who only vote one way: his.
I think this dirtbag is going to go out with a bullet.
