State of Colombia

Colombia is now in a state of chaos as several paramilitary groups continually fight each other. The Colombian government has tried but failed to stop said groups.
The existence of these groups is due to the fact that in the 1960’s in order to gain the coffee plantations from the farmers. This led to the creation of groups such as the National Liberation Army (ELN) or the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and other such rebel groups which continue armed struggle against the Colombian government.
These groups however, are not to be mistaken with drug cartels. In the early 1980’s these groups actually came into conflict with said cartels, and later kidnapped powerful drug families because they came into conflict with one another.
Ultimately the government in Colombia much like the government in the Philippines has failed to stop these paramilatry groups because 1) corrupt officials an 2) because of crime syndicates. These two go hand in hand because when said syndicates bribe military officials those officials care not for their country but rather for the money that they could earn. The drug cartels in effect keep the Colombian military from bringing the axe down on the rebel groups. The government must weed out corruption in order form them do address ether the rebel groups or the drug cartels.
