    Colombia had located Raúl Reyes, # 2 in the FARC after Marulanda in a camp in Santa Ana, Sucumbíos Province in ecuadorian territorry.

    Colombia's army had traspassed the frontier line many times before, but this past weekend they bombed a FARC camp when they were sleeping.

    Ecuador responded demanding apologies for the military action in ecuadorian territory because Colombia knew of the operation weeks ago and didn't communicate the ecuadorian army of the prescence of Reyes there.

    Ecuador alleged that Colombia violated its sovereingty and Colombia alleges that it was an action taken in legitime defence (legítima defensa in spanish) to destroy the FARC.

    Colombia supposedly found a laptop that contained information of meetings with members of ecuadorian and venezuelan governments and now Colombia says that Venezuela finances FARC and Ecuador gives refuge to them.

    The OAS said that Colombia violated articles 61, 62 and 63 of the charter of the OAS and created a commission to investigate.

    Now Ecuador is demanding that Colombia commits to never doing those type of actions again.

    Chavez is in this because he wants to discredit Alvaro Uribe.

    Chavez wanted to make political profit from the liberation of hostages and Uribe has a more militaristic approach backed by the USA.

    its a long story but in short colombia invaded a farc cap and killed a very high ranked person in the farc. the found some laptops which said that venezuela was contributing money to the farc. venzuela is saying this is not true. Ecuador is along with venezuela. this may cause a war but i dont think it will happen. anyways colombia is backed up by u.s.a. hoped this helped

    nicely in colombia theres this team thats called las FARC ( progressive defense force of colombia). colombias preseidtn needs to kill them or do away with them because each and each of the farc does is kidnap human beings and they wanna take over the country. very last sat. colombia kiled raul reyes (the significant guy from the farc) buttt they killed him a million.8 kilometers in ecuadorian territory. ecuador is like mad at colombia and they decrease off commerce with colombia. venezuela also decrease off commerce with colombia because the colombian pres. killed raul reyes (apparently he change into hugo chavez (venezuelan pres.) bestt pal haha) because venzuela gave the farc three hundred million funds. which i imagine is kinda of backstabbing colombia because even as colombia is attempting to do away with them, venezuela doesnt. hugo chaves even tried to do away with the farc from the terrorist record. and he reported that colombia change into going to be the recent iraq of south united statesa.. hes so stupid) nowww nicaragua also decrease off commerce with colombia..why? umm theres actully no reason behind them to attempt this. desire i helped. btw, im 13 and im from colombia so yeahh lol
