Machinery of Plunder

En Camino discusses the machinery of plunder exemplified by Plan Colombia, the current template for U.S. Military intervention in Latin America on behalf of transnational corporations. While the FARC guerrillas remain the excuse for militarization of indigenous territories, the consolidation of economic interests — including the military industry — is the motivation for the recolonization of Fourth World lands. Equivocal over the choice between the expulsion or the extermination of native peoples, the U.S. Southern Command continues in a long genocidal tradition begun in 1492.
