2. Urbe won't stop warmongering until the last poor peasant farmer...

...who may be growing a few coca leaves, and all other rivals to his criminal organization, are exterminated.

That's what he's all about. That's what the Bush Junta was all about in Colombia, in my opinion-- turning the "war on drugs" on its head (in so far as it was ever upright to begin with) into a war FOR the favored, 'cooperative' drug lords and, of course, for the banksters and other beneficiaries of this trillion-plus dollar trade.

This upside down "war on drugs" has had other benefits to the Corporate Rulers--for instance, the FIVE MILLION peasant farmers brutally displaced from their lands benefits transglobal corporations who are, or will be, exploiting that land with the U.S. "free trade for the rich" agreement. It also hugely benefits War Profiteers and the many private entities now deeply involved in war, including police agencies, here and in Colombia, and their private contractors. It is such a boon to military/police-state agencies and contractors to be able to blow $7 BILLION of U.S. taxpayer money, in military aid alone to Colombia, on NOT getting the specified job done. The more they seem to be trying, the more cocaine moves out of Colombia to the U.S., Europe and elsewhere.

This is the hidden "dark matter" in U.S. foreign policy in Latin America, which has complicated Obama's LatAm policy in many ways, including how to cover up the Bush Junta's massive corruption and war crimes in Colombia.
