Just having a thought...

Thinking about what I just posted today,... about the FARC. (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia) They kidnap and "disappear" people all the time for politcal or economic reasons. They kidnap people for whom they can expect to be paid over a million dollars for their safe return, and they do not negociate because they know it is highly unlikely that the person could ever be rescued. If they are not paid raight away, they up the price and charge interest. They kill the person with no regret if their security is threatened. Life is worth nothing to them. This is what happened to Cecila Cubas, (daughter of ex-president Raul Cubas of Paraguay) she was put in a tunnel that had been dug out to keep and then she was assassinated. The pictures I posted along with the article below say it all, people are held chained and drugged in holes and tunnels in inhumane conditions.

Ingrid Betancourt, Colombian Presidential Candidate, and her Campaign director, Clara Rojas were kidnapped by the FARC February 23, 2002. I can only imagine what conditions they might be living in, if they are even alive today... The Colombian government and paramilitary etc, etc, aren't really interested in having them released, for political reasons... See info in English here: http://www.educweb.org/Ingrid/indexEng.htm

The official site for the liberation of Ingrid Betancourt is here, but available in French and Spanish only: http://www.ingridbetancourt.com/

So many of these people, (paramilitary groups, guerillas, etc in different countries) all receive their training at the School of the Americas in the US. If Bush was really interested in fighting Terrorism he'd start in his own country. And he calls himself pro-life? You have to be more than anti-abortion to be pro-life...

How horrible humanity can be when it gives up on God...
