Chavez and his goofy little soldier clowns better think twice before they start anything with Colombia. Colombian forces have been battle-hardened by several decades of their war against these terrorist groups.
Not only that, the last time I was in Cartagena, I noticed quite a few tough-looking and very serious gringos with military haircuts around the hotel me and a buddy were staying at, who kept to themselves and didn’t have much to say when I was silly enough to ask’em - “So hey, what kinda work y’all do?”
Parenthetically, the haircuts were a definite give-away. I remember when I was in the Air Force and had to visit an important tracking station in a Soviet-aligned nation (yeah, strange but true). I was told to go low-profile in civies but got no relief from the blatantly sore-thumb AFR 35-10 mandated haircut - back in the early 80’s, when nobody sported those. Also strange but true. Bureaucracies are not subject to common sense.
