Colombia has been experiencing a worrying situation due to the systematic murder of police officers. Now, the seizure of power by the radical left, led by Gustavo Petro, further preoccupy citizens. In view of the facts, our editors-in-chief, Orlando Avendaño and Vanessa Vallejo, analyze the Colombian crisis in Sinceramente.

Vallejo explained that the left is behind the attack on police officers and that it is not a situation that is only seen in Latin America. She highlighted that throughout the region, there are politicians and organizations that promote the rejection of the authorities, even in countries such as the United States. However, she states that American institutions have prevented the end of the police.

Vallejo also commented that Gustavo Petro is not interested in being an ally of the Colombian Armed Forces. “Petro does not need the Colombian Army to be on his side. His partners are the FARC guerrillas”, Vallejo assured.

Policemen killed in Colombia

Orlando Avendaño explained that more than 60 policemen have been killed in Colombia this year, of which 32 died on duty. Avendaño claims that it is undoubtedly a campaign against the Police and indicated that the position of Gustavo Petro and his team regarding this issue is worrying. “Colombia, since the late 1990s, has been the main military, strategic, and security ally for the United States in the region, that is at stake with Gustavo Petro.”

Avendaño said that the campaign is driven by different leftist groups, but, in his opinion, it is led by the Clan del Golfo. “It is striking that the Clan del Golfo is doing this because they know that during Gustavo Petro’s government they can negotiate, they said so in a communiqué.”
