Los secuestros de policias y soldados se efectuaron por descuido en las medidas de seguridad de las bases, desde que U.S. esta ayudando en el entrenamiento de las fuerzas antiguerrillas, se mejoro este problema, es que se debe tener en cuenta que un ejercito con 50 años de guerra se tiende a bajar la guardia y la disciplina se degenera. la instruccion de ranger es muy importante, la moral de la tropa debe estar siempre vijilada y motivada. Yo, creo que
la urgencia de sacar oficiales, a desmejorado la seleccion de los ingresos a la escuela militar.
problemas dentro de la piramide por los ascensos
llevan a un canibalismo perjudicial para la institucion. no siempre llegan los primeros puestos al grado de general, llegan muchos del monton, la precion politica pidiendo resultados
llevo a montar los falsos positivos, por miedo
a ser llamados al retiro ! Two Colombian police, part of a group of at least twenty-two uniformed personnel that the FARC guerrilla group are holding in the depths of the jungle and aim to exchange for five hundred captured guerrillas, mark eleven years of captivity. Maj. Edgar Yesid Duarte and Capt. Elkin Hernandez Rivas fell into the hands of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a Marxist guerrilla group, on 14 October 1998, on a road in the department of El Caqueta (in southern Colombia). On 31 August the FARC released video evidence that nine of the hostages were still alive, Duarte and Hernández were among them. The length of time that these two police have been held is exceeded only by that of Army non-commissioned officers Pablo Emilio Moncayo and Libio Jose Martinez, who were taken hostage in December 1997 in a FARC attack on a military communications base in the department of Putumayo (in southern Colombia). The FARC announced in April that it would unilaterally release Moncayo and the soldier Jose Calvo, captured after having been wounded on 20 April, according to the group. Up to now, these releases have not taken place due to disputes between Álvaro Uribe’s administration and the guerrilla group about the logistics of the handover to opposition senator Piedad Córdoba. The other uniformed personnel who remain in the FARC’s power, some of them in chains - according to the reports of former hostages and as seen in the evidence demonstrating their survival - are those whom the group proposes to release in exchange for the release from prison of around five hundred rebels, a proposal that Uribe rejects.
