47. Sorry, but...
...arguing that Colombia has 'improved' based upon select statistics is entirely specious, like arguing that because we had more snow this year there's no such thing as global warming. Face it; as a country, Colombia is barely functional. The government survives through cocaine corruption, the fact FARC is even more incompetent than the government, and the US props it up (even more than the old Soviet Union propped up Cuba: it's sad when the only friend you've got in the hemisphere has to be bought).
Chavez has done far more when it comes to social justice than Uribe.
