sorry, im not big on if, coulds or woulds if u know what I mean. eliminating the big boys would help significantly yes. how do you expect to spend and implement social hand outs if theres money that needs to be spent to fuel a war? im only favoring "machos" because the fight is not over.... your essentially hoping for something thats supposed to be considered only until after we have overcome what you know what we have to overcome, in a physical/psychological sense and that is a revolutionary ideology in the guise of a terrorist group. its not like this is on a foreign land or our back yard, its in our very house. u guys bitch about uribe doing sketch shit under the table, atleast hes got the enemy on its heels almost to the point of full retreat. name me one of your heroes that has been able to achieve that to date in colombia? is it just me or has diplomacy with armed groups failed miserably in Colombia? am i just making shit up as i go?
