América's Foremost Social Satirist Opens New Web Site:

"In Colombia, President Clinton observed "This is not Vietnam." Of course it isn't. If it was Vietnam he'd have been nowhere near the place. What Clinton really meant was "The war on drugs is not the Vietnam War." Which makes no sense since Vietnam was the original war on drugs -- everybody was on drugs over there.... and George W. Bush was born with a silver spoon -- in his nose."

The Narco News Interview with exiled Colombian Journalist Alfredo Molano in Barcelona:

The LA Times reported on Sunday, August 6 that 83 US "military advisors" have just entered Colombia...

New Poll (8/6) from El Espectador newspaper in Colombia:

71 % of Colombians disapprove of President Andrés Pastrana

Earth to President Clinton:



"There is no question that Colombia suffers from the problems of a state yet to consolidate its power: a lack of confidence in the capacity of the armed forces, the police, and the judicial system to guarantee order and security; a credibility crisis at different levels and in different agencies of government; and corrupt practices in the public and the private sectors. All this has been fed and aggravated by the enormous destabilizing effects of drug trafficking, which, with vast economic resources, has constantly generated indiscriminate violence while undermining our values, on a scale comparable only to the era of Prohibition in the United States."
