Police Find Cocaine-Smuggling Submarine

Police Find Cocaine-Smuggling Submarine
March 28, 2005
reuters.com

BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - Colombian police found a homemade submarine capable of carrying $200 million worth of cocaine on a Pacific Ocean smuggling mission, police said Friday.

Police, who acted on a tip, made no arrests after finding the submarine hidden in the port of Tumaco, near the border with Ecuador, the Administrative Security Department detective force said.

It was the second publicized case of Colombian drug smugglers trying to use submarines. In 2000, another underwater vessel was found far from the coast in the Andean mountain capital, Bogota.

"They started building the submarine about six months ago, using small pieces so as not to make people suspicious. They wanted to have it ready for Easter because they thought the police would drop their guard," said Eduardo Fernandez, head of the DAS in the southern province of Valle del Cauca.

He did not say where the submarine appeared to be headed or how far it could travel. The vessel had the capacity to carry 10 tons of cocaine, which could be worth from $200 million to $300 million on U.S. streets.

Colombia's drug smugglers are always looking for ways of getting cocaine and heroin into big markets such as the United States and Europe. Methods include having people known as "mules" swallow drugs wrapped up in condoms, or hiding cocaine or heroin in cargo such as dog food.

Funds from cocaine help buy bullets for Marxist rebels and far-right paramilitary outlaws fighting a four-decade-old war, which claims thousands of lives a year. Colombia is the world's largest producer of cocaine and a major supplier of heroin to the United States.

It's common knowledge. The Marxists (FARC) protect the drug smugglers and even supposedly engage in drug dealing of their own. FARC gets money from doing this which funds their civil war against the Colombian government.

no not any drug

just coke and heroin and sometimes opium. they all come from all over however colombia is the largest coke producing country and it is controlled (it being the coke trade) by the farc which is a huge rebel terrorist group. so yes coke funds terrorism no questions. it is a fact.

Of course, if drugs were legal, the value of the cocaine would drop to zero on the black market... it really isn't the drug users that are supporting the FARC, but our own lawmakers.

i like how they compare some idiot swallowing a couple of trojans full of blow, to the kind of idea as building a fuckin submarine( that's out of a bond movie it think.) a few grams or 10 tons, almost the same.

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."
