I wrote an opinion piece titled; Colombia’s Second War of Independence back in June 2010, about the war here in Colombia. This was during the climate of an election campaign. The campaign was between Santos, the then defence minister (now president) and Antanas Mockus. I backed Santos like many of the majority of Colombians, with the aim of winning this war and bringing those accountable to justice. How wrong I eventually turned out to be. I am confident however that the situation would not be far from what it is now had Mockus won. It's worth pointing out that in my aforementioned piece, I am keen to stress the issue of injustice.
