After the backing-up of the establishment by the U.S. against the revolt of its population, the U.S. called their freedom fighters the narcoguerillas. After a fake war on drugs, the U.S. supported and financed governments and paramilitaries that slaughtered indiscriminately both locals and combatants... forgetting to tell us, that they were protecting their economical interests. Which interests? Is it coincidental that in 2009 Colombia provided 685.82 barrels a day to the U.S., becoming its 10th largest provider? Who wants to deal with an unstable country with so much at stake? Not the U.S.!
Let's not forget the U.S. state of mind: it needs reserves in case of global conflict
Their real intention is to protect their interests. If the communist group had to take power it will lead to the nationalization of the wealth like in most countries that experienced a putch! The drugs are the least of their concerns!
They were/are against communism because it is the antithesis of capitalism. But in 2012, communism, the way it was during the cold war, is obsolete. The U.S. like the certainty of a good bilateral relationship. Iran is the perfect example, when Mossaddegh after his election decided to nationalize oil, the CIA planned a coup. Had he not, he would have ruled!
But it shows the extent of their actions when their interests are at play!

The goal was oil, not terrorism. It is well documented that Bush could care less about Bin Laden. Why do you suppose that was? Don't you ever wonder? Here is the answer: http://www.pissedonpolitics.com/2007/05 …...
