The big news are no longer related to Chávez sending troops to the Colombian border. Instead, latest evidence may link Chávez with the funding of a terrorist organization. The Colombian government claims that documents found in the computer that belonged to “Raúl Reyes” (second in command of the FARC killed this past Saturday by the Colombian government) show that Chávez may have given over $300 million dollars to the Marxist group. There is also some evidence of Uranium trade in these documents. The FARC (translated Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) is a guerrilla movement (or so-called Marxist group) that has been trying to overthrow the Colombian government for the past 40 years. They have organized attacks on civilians, murders and kidnappings. They are considered a terrorist group by Canada, United States, Colombia, and the European Union, while Chávez has publicly repudiated the classification.
