The drug war going on in Colombia reads like a great comic book…minus a superhero of course. “As The Great Don Mario took cover under a palm tree, U.S. paratroopers stormed in on him and foiled his next sinister plot to cypher thousands of kilograms of cocaine into the country.” Told you! That’s all true.
Don Mario, whose real name is Daniel Rendon-Herrera, was caught last week and was charged in NYC federal court yesterday with terrorism via conspiring to support the “Autodefensas Unidas de Colombia (AUC) rightist paramilitary group,” and of course drug trafficking with the whole “thousands of kilograms of cocaine into the United States” thing.
As usual, he faces life in prison, but if he’s detained in Colombia right now and no one will comment on his extradition to the U.S., why not bring back the old firing squad? They had so much worse waiting for Saddam Hussein’s hind parts. Remember what they did to his sons? Makes you shiver. One thing Bush could get right is the whole cowboy torture and kill ’em routine. This is one character who needs it and if you read here, you will see why.
