••••• on Drugs
by George Szamuely
New York Press
Bill Clinton's one-day visit to Colombia this week encapsulates perfectly his presidency: a pointless photo-op to sell a fraudulent bill of goods. He is there ostensibly to express his confidence in Colombia's President Andres Pastrana, whose fight against the narco-traffickers is being underwritten by the United States to the tune of $1.3 billion. However, the idea of Colombia getting out of the drug business is so patently absurd that not even Clinton's coterie of obsequious toadies is buying this one. In the first place, the Colombian military – to be armed and trained by the U.S. – are the last people on Earth to allow a lucrative enterprise like narcotics slip through their fingers.
In November 1998, a few weeks after Pastrana's visit to Washington to assure Americans of his firm resolve to fight the scourge of drugs, the head of the Colombian air force had to resign. The resignation followed the discovery of over 1600 pounds of cocaine aboard a military transport plane that had just arrived in Fort Lauderdale from Bogota. "This incident need have no effect whatsoever on our views of President Pastrana's determination to work with us to fight the export of drugs from Colombia," piped up little Jamie Rubin of the State Dept. Of course not. Any more than the recent conviction of the former commander of U.S. Army anti-drug advisers in Colombia, Col. James Hiett, on charges of covering up his wife's drug smuggling, need have any effect on our views of the seriousness of the U.S. commitment to wage war on drugs.
The US. can spray with herbicides every field from the Gulf of Mexico to Antarctica. But someone else will always be there to provide Americans with their drug fix. Pakistan, Afghanistan, Myanmar – the list of candidates is long.
No, the latest round in America's melodramatic "war on drugs" has nothing whatsoever to do with drugs. It is about corporations with substantial investments in Colombia lobbying the U.S. government to step in and take over the country on their behalf. In Pastrana they have found a happily compliant Colombian leader. Colombia is burdened with a large international debt, which it must pay off with its oil exports. Pastrana has signed on to the usual IMF austerity program of public spending cuts and devaluation. The result has been misery, strikes and, naturally, a shot in the arm for the narcotics industry. Colombia's economy shrank 4.5 percent in 1999. Earlier this month, tanks and troops were called out to the streets of Bogota as 700,000 state workers staged a 24-hour strike protesting government austerity measures.
But how did drugs get into the picture? It was the corporations that came up with this wheeze. Lockheed Martin approached the Clinton administration with a poll it had commissioned, showing a majority of the public believing drug use to be on the rise, with Democrats, not Republicans, being held responsible. Therefore, Democrats should do something dramatic. Lockheed Martin's day job, incidentally, includes making aircraft for use in military operations against drug smugglers. One of the most ardent advocates of American military involvement in Colombia was the U.S.-Colombia Business Partnership – which includes such corporations as Occidental, Enron, BP Amoco and Colgate-Palmolive. Drugs are "disruptive of any normal business relationship," explained Lawrence Meriage, Occidental's vice president for public affairs. But what was really troubling him was the $100 million Occidental has lost as a result of the repeated rebel assaults on the Limon Covenas pipeline by various armed groups. Every year, the oil companies are forced to shell out a "war tax," which they pay directly to the Colombian army and police for their protection.
Earlier this month, Occidental suspended oil production and declared force majeure at Colombia's second largest oil field because of repeated bombing of the pipeline. In 1999 alone it had allegedly been attacked 79 times. Clearly, they would be saving themselves a lot of money if the U.S. government took over protecting the pipelines.
The Plan Colombia, allegedly a joint product of the U.S. and Colombian governments, reads very much as if it were conceived and written in Washington. It is full of the usual "market democracy" or "do what we tell you or else" bromides: "Free trade agreements that attract foreign and domestic investment"; "a fiscal and financial strategy that includes tough austerity and adjustment measures"; "state-owned companies and banks are to be privatized"; "foreign investment" will be "crucial in modernizing the industrial backbone of the country"; "steps" must be taken "to promote a favorable environment for electronic trade." The Plan gets hilarious when it describes Colombia's economic plight. After first commending the country for opening up "its traditionally closed economy," the author notes sorrowfully that "production of cereals, such as wheat, corn, and barley…were shown to be noncompetitive in world markets. The result was the loss of 700,000 hectares of agricultural production to imports during the decade, which in turn proved to be a critical blow to employment in the rural areas where Colombia's conflict is mainly staged."
Yes, but why had Colombia's traditional agriculture become so "noncompetitive"? Could it possibly have something to do with the explosion of subsidies afforded to U.S. farmers in recent years?
U.S. Special Forces trainers have already arrived in Colombia. Congress conditioned the $1.3 billion package on the Colombian government's ability to curb human rights abuses by its armed forces. Pastrana was made to promise that military personnel accused of human rights abuses would be brought to justice in the country's civilian courts. Of all the demands made on his government, this is the one it will least likely be held to.
The U.S. has too much invested in Colombia to waste time chasing up "bad apples." Even the recent murder of six schoolchildren by Colombian soldiers did nothing to dampen Washington's enthusiasm for the venture. As always, the wealth of the few trumps the welfare of the many.
LOTS OF YANKS COMING BACK IN BODY BAGS SOON.VIETNAM PART 2 COMING SOON
This board is SAD.. LOL...

this 12 year old Ultra kid counting his pubics.
I am far better looking than William Wallace and a greater warrior. Of course you have no understand the meaning of honor and integrity would you or what it's like to be a man you little bitch. You are faggoty little man who knows no national pride and has nothing to stand for. You live in the US, you do nothing but critisize it and praise the counrty you pretend to hail from. Get your story straight will you. I hear illum is having your child, congratulations...
YOU MORON. YOUR FATHER WAS NOT A MAN ENOUGH TO TEACH YOU NOT TO SPEAK TO PEOPLE OLDER THAN YOU IN SUCH A MANNER. YOU ARE STILL A LITTLE ••••. IF YOU EVEN BEEN IN MY SHOES AND SEEN THE THINGS I SEEN IN MY LIFE, AND MET THE PEOPLE I HAVE MET. YOUR HEART WOULD JUST BREAK IN JEALOUSY. I HAVE A JOB, A LIFE, AND ALL THE OTHER THINGS A LITTLE BOY LIKE YOU STILL HAS TO LOOK FORWARD TO. I LIVE IN RUSSIA, THE GREATEST COUNTRY. I DONT CRITICIZE U.S., I RETALIATE AGAINST ITS AGGRESSION. PEOPLE LIKE YOU THAT BEGAN TO TALK ••••, I DEFEND. JUST LIKE U.S. MAKES AGGRESSIONS AGAINST RUSSIA, IT WILL DEFEND.
For too long this board has been infested by Igor and his Russian baboon comrades. Russians belong in the jungles of Africa, swinging on the trees not typing on an American Jewish message board. Where would Russia be today, without all the generous aid israel has given them? despite the fact that russians have taken money from the filthy Saudis.
I hope i have made myself clear. Do not mess with the Sephardic.
Shalom To all Jews
The dirty pig eating Russians have gone to far.
We give the hungry, poor beggers of Russia, food, clothing and money and still they betrayed us. We invited the filthy Russians to Israel as friends.
Instead of behaving like human Jews they have
shattered the dream of Zionism. Israel now must rid itself of dirty, smelly pig eating Russians. Israel used to be a land free of prostitution. Now since the Russians came, there is filthy prostitution everywhere.(Even near synagogues!
Why do ALL Russian women have to sell their bodies? Do Russian men bring up their daughters to be prostitutes? Why must you be eating pigs on the pure soil of Israel? Why don't Russians clean themselves? We will give you soap and toilet paper.
Russians, you have been warned! YOU WILL NOT BEHAVE LIKE THIS IN THE LAND OF THE CHOSEN

more than 900 participants at its gathering on Wednesday and
Thursday, 152 speakers and more than 400 sitting legislators.
The meeting is one of several conferences held ahead of next week's
Millennium Summit when more than 150 kings, presidents and prime
ministers come to the United Nations to examine the purpose of the
world body in the 21st century.
U.S. Fails To Answer Invitation
But an invitation by the IPU to U.S. House of Representatives
Speaker Dennis Hastert to chair part of the meeting was not
answered, and no one from either house of the U.S. Congress is

although Americans helped found the group....
