Operation Against FARC in Panama

first_img A camp was destroyed and two narco-terrorists suspected of belonging to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) were arrested as the result of two clashes between units of the Panamanian National Border Service (Senafront) and Colombian irregulars. The clashes took place near the Tuira River in the jungle community of Madugandí, in the province of Darién, on the border with Colombia, at a camp that had been discovered previously. Panamanian security forces continue to seek other suspects believed to have succeeded in escaping in the direction of the Colombian border. After hearing the news, Security Minister José Raúl Mulino travelled to the province, where he indicated that he expects that an investigation will take place with regard to the two Colombians arrested. For his part, Frank Ábrego, the director of Senafront, said that the camp had a capacity of around 60 people and that there was dried food and other domestic items that, according to him, demonstrated that the place had been used by these individuals. With the death of “Cano” last week, for sure the FARC guerrilla group was 96% wiped out since all their low level guerrillas will leave the jungle, to reintegrate into Colombian society, and not keep on with an “absurd war” that’s been going on for 50 years, and no one knows why it’s going on, some said to achieve, in a few years, the POWER OR TAKEOVER OF THE GOVERNMENT, AND IMPLEMENT COMMUNISM OR SOCIAL CHANGE.. ALL THAT HAS GONE OUT OF STYLE..

NO ONE IN THE JUNGLE WILL GIVE YOU CHANGE FOR A 50,000 PESO BILL. THE COMPUTERS, MEMORIES, TOOLS, FOOD, SUPPLIES, MILITARY MATERIAL, TENTS, CAMPS, WOMEN, DRUGS, THE SMALL BILLS, REQUIRE A LOT OF TRUSTWORTHY PEOPLE, SERVANTS OR SERVILE, TO MANAGE ALL THAT STUFF LIKE A CIRCUS… EVERY TIME THE GREAT CHIEF “CANO” CHANGED HIS ADDRESS…. YOU NEED DOUBLE THE PEOPLE TO DO THE MANEUVER. AND THOSE WHO WATCH OVER WHAT’S BEING MOVED SHOULDN’T STEAL, THERE’S EVERYTHING IN THERE…., THE LEADERS ARE MOVING AROUND IN THE JUNGLE, EVERY DAY LIKE “CANO” AND MORE WHEN THEY KNOW THEY’RE BEING CLOSELY FOLLOWED…. The system of STATIONARY CAMPS WILL ALWAYS BE TEMPORARY, THEY’RE DISCOVERED LIKE THE ONES USED BY “REYES, AND THE MONO JOJOY” AND NOW THE ONE “CANO” OCCUPIED RECENTLY, THE ARMY, ITS INTELLIGENCE ARE ON TOP OF THINGS, NO MORE VISITS BY LAND, BY AIR, LIKE THE WAR AGAINST GUERRILLAS TODAY SHOULD BE… MORE THAN 50 HELICOPTERS ARE NEEDED PUT THEM ALL OVER COLOMBIA AT THE SAME TIME, PERMANENT BOMBING OF THE GUERRILLAS.
