Is U.S Funding Responsible For Mass Graves Found In Colombia?
Mass graves and thousands of bodies found and by accident near a Columbian Army Base currently overseen by the United States recently. The Army Base also seems to be backed and funded by the United States as reported by Lauren Lyster of RTAmerica . The Colombian Military claim that these deaths were Rebel Gorillas and not civilians as reported by the locals . The local residents say other wise that these innocent civilians were loved ones, friends and neighbors that suddenly disappeared. The bodies were discovered when children became sick suddenly by the areas drinking water supply. It would be a great act of human rights violation by both Colombia and the United States if these persons killed were in fact law abiding innocent civilians. The underlying issue of course in Colombia is the drug trafficking of cocaine and the presence of insurgent rebel groups. Funding for the Colombian Army by the United States given to Colombia was initially to assist in reduction and eradication of both militant rebel and drug cartels is an estimated 6 billions roughly . The possible connection between this elevated death count and the billions in funding may have a sinister partnership. If true this would be a dramatic blow to the image of the United States and it's foreign affairs for promoting death squads of innocent civilians.
