Kewl, It's nice to have friends


We have surprise help in the Afghani anti-terror war- that's not a war on terror (or something like that).
The tiny country of Columbia is going to repay us, the U.S. for our help in training them to fight Marxist terrorists by sending troops to Afghanistan.

Ten years ago, they didn't even exist. Today, elite Colombian Special Operations troops are preparing to fight alongside the U.S. in Afghanistan, reports CBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent Lara Logan.

For Colombia, it's a way to give something back to the U.S., and the American Green Berets who've spent the last decade training them.

General Freddy Padilla de Leon, Colombia's top military man, chose an interview with Logan to make the surprise announcement his men would join the fight in Afghanistan.

"Very soon ... Maybe in August or September. This will be our first opportunity in our history," Padilla said.

Colombia's recent history is written in blood. An insurgency waged by leftist guerillas known as the FARC. And funded with drug money brought Colombia to its knees.

Colombia today is a different world. The economy is thriving and order has been restored.

It's a surprise announcement. Think Obama knows yet? If he does, how long do you think it'll take for him to revoke their ........combat VISAs because they were fighting against his fellow travelers in FARC (no, not the news aggregate), since he'll do that to countries who want to keep dictator free.
