Colombia’s Vice Pres & Dumb Talk

La entrevista del Vicepresidente con EL TIEMPO es muestra fehaciente de que el gobierno de Colombia no termina el duelo por la derrota de Bush. La entrevista podría resumirse así: “Antes hacíamos lo mismo y nadie nos cuestionaba nada. Ahora nos preguntan por qué matan sindicalistas y no producimos sentencias judiciales que esclarezcan los crímenes; cómo vamos a hacer respetar los derechos laborales para el libre comercio; nos preguntan por qué ‘chuzamos’ y perseguimos a magistrados y periodistas que nos incomodan; por qué miembros de la fuerza pública matan a jóvenes inocentes para hacer falsos positivos; por qué siguen operando bandas criminales en las zonas donde se supone se desmovilizaron los paramilitares. Nos preguntan cómo nos gastamos los pinches 550 millones de dólares que nos dan para el Plan Colombia. ¡Es el colmo! ¡Que nos respeten!”.

The Vice President’s interview with El Tiempo [on March 15, in which VP Francisco Santos called for an end to Plan Colombia] is a strong indication that the Colombian government has not finished mourning Bush’s defeat. The interview could be summarized: “Before, we did the same thing and nobody questioned us about anything. Now, they ask us why unionists are killed and we don’t produce judicial verdicts to clarify the crimes; how are we going to ensure that labor rights are respected for free trade; they ask us why we wiretap and follow judges and journalists who make us uncomfortable; why members of the security forces kill innocent young people to give false evidence of combat progress; why criminal gangs continue to operate in zones where the paramilitaries supposedly demobilized. They ask us how we spend those piddling 550 million dollars that they give us for Plan Colombia. It is an outrage! They must respect us!”
