BOGOTA – At least 36 Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, guerrillas died Monday in an operation staged by the security forces, officials said.
The operation marked the second big blow suffered in less than a week by the FARC, which lost 33 fighters in combat last Wednesday.
“Congratulations to the security forces. Hard blow to the FARC in Vistahermosa, Meta: 36 guerrillas neutralized,” President Juan Manuel Santos said in a Twitter posting.
Mexico should hire a mercenary group to get the drug lords, take them out as each new lord takes over, until the message gets out that it's not worth it to die for a few days of wealth and power.
