Send obama down there to take notes...............oh wait.......... he’s golfing? Never mind.
In other news President Obama sends 15 unarmed National Guard troups to the Arizona border with Mexico in a operation code-named FARCE (Federal Army Responce to Conceal Entanglements).
And all this time I didn't think he had it in him to actually push that "red button" as POTUS! /s
So, this after the recent visit by Colombia’s President Santos. I gather this means that Ecuador will cooperate and coordinate with the Colombians against FARC and the gang.
Previously, they seemed to think they could afford to ignore FARC setting up shop on their side of the river. Perhaps Santos was able to present Correa with convincing evidence of FARCs skullduggery in Ecuador.
Imagine if the news report was that the President of Equador had sent thousands of firearms to the FARC and drug/insurgent groups in Columbia....
So that’s pretty much everybody.
And one wonders whether the Holder-Obama RICO operation is merely the most northern cartel.
Hell, Zero would send them to Ecuador to quell the uprising, then stop off in Kho-loom-byah to apologize.
There was a recent thread about buying homes and retiring in Ecuador. Does this affect any decisions?
