While FARC is becoming increasingly unpopular, the organization has never been stronger. FARC is more rapidly moving from a revolutionary organization to a large criminal one. With over 15,000 armed members, and over half a billion dollars a year in revenue, FARC is big business. Even the lowest ranking member gets paid more than the average Colombian, and the senior leaders do very well. The casualty rate is significant, with at least a quarter of FARC members being killed or wounded each year. But it's a living, and FARC is not likely to disappear any time soon.
