There are eleven detainees including several wounded. All are missing, only two Colombian appeared injured and one Mexican.

The murder of Raul Reyes had several motives; first, sabotaging the work it is doing the FARC at the international level, people mistakenly believe that with this crime manage to break the contacts we have around the world; second show success of Plan Colombia and Patriot after 6 years of operations; third. Prevent the possible release of Ingrid Betancur through humanitarian exchange that was being managed with the president of France Nicolas Sarkozy, President Hugo Rafael Chavez and Senator Piedad Cordoba and, fourth, the most important measure the pulse to the Continent, especially Part Andina.

Everyone knows that the rule has assigned to Colombia and President Alvaro Uribe Velez, the sad role of sabotage, halt and eliminate processes that have been taking place in Latin America, especially Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia. With this barbaric act, which violated the sovereignty of Ecuador, was sought to intimidate these countries with blackmail.

Calculaban Uribe and Bush, who before the assault, Ecuador had to be silent because the media in Colombia had already mounted the novelón the collaboration of Rafael Correa and Hugo Chavez with the FARC. Faced with the world accusing assist terrorism and the drug trade, serve as a warning to any other country that would be defending the exchange humanitarian and political solution to the social and armed conflict in Colombia. Specifically peace.

It is a new version of the Condor Plan, excluding any In Colombia, trade unionist, human rights defender, political activist or social researcher could be accused of terrorism and being persecuted, tortured, murdered or imprisoned. If you are looking to save lives in another country, he must apprehend and deport him to Colombia immediately, if you do not, will be charged with terrorism and will fall on that country's fury and bombs Uribe with the support of Bush.

Colombia has the largest military force in Latin America: an army of 210,000 troops over 140,000, police with the intelligence structures joined 400 thousand people, surpassing Brazil which has 8 times the territorial extension and four times the population of Colombia .

The military expenditure in Colombia reaches 6.5% of GDP. The United States, investing in military spending 2% of Gross Domestic Product, the countries of South America are spending 5 times less than Colombia. It means that Colombia is preparing for a war that is not exactly against the insurgency and drug trafficking.

Bush and Uribe continues in his attempt. Plan Colombia has led to a "help" from the U.S. From 5,400 million covered the years 2000 to 2007, 4,400 military expenditures for these millions, it is estimated that by 2008 will come to 7,000 million dollars. For its part Colombia has invested in the plan, 6,950 Millions of dollars… how many schools, hospitals and jobs could have been created with this money?
