Colombia: July 15, 2005


The government offensive against the 30,000 or so organized rebels in the country has had dramatic effects this year. While some 300 soldiers have been killed so far this year, thousands of rebels have died or, more importantly, left the rebel ranks. This was done largely by going after rebels camps, and over 700 of these camps have been captured and destroyed. Losing your living space has been bad for rebel morale. The troops have also seized over 500 rebel vehicles and much other property besides.
