    It's high time the Combian government declared all-out war on the FARC....this stupid war of attrition will just carry on indefinitely....The FARC has absolutely no interest in laying down its weapons and renouncing violence against the citizens of Colombia. No-one supports them, they've lost any and all legitimacy which one day, they may or may not have ever had.
