For half a century, the United States and its client state in Colombia have been unsuccessful in eliminating Latin America's oldest and most powerful Marxist insurgency the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), via the Cold War, the 'War on Drugs,' and the 'War on Terror' after 9/11. This is an astonishing feat for a so-called 'terrorist' organisation in the twenty-first century. This paper will explore an area much eluded in Washington's 'Axis of Evil,' the US 'War on Narcoterrorism' in Colombia with a particular focus on the cocaine drug trade and the FARC.
