FARC defectors continue to come in

In a report from El Tiempo today (Spanish-language source, sorry), two more FARC guerrillas with two recently-kidnapped hostages gave themselves up, turning in their weapons and accepting government internment.

This brings the total to five that have surrendered in the last 30 days.

The FARC isn't out of the cocaine business yet by any means and is still capable of mounting minor attacks (one recent raid burned a small oil-development camp), but the trends are still all going in favor of the Colombian Government.

Long road still to victory, though.
