Since 1964 and 1966 (when the The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and the National Liberation Army, two guerilla insurgency groups were founded respectively), Colombia has been in a low-intesity, long-term battle with itself. These groups have fought against the rotating conservative and liberal governments of their country, turning to drug trafficking as a source of income. The brutality faced, the kidnappings that are endured and the cartels involved give a bad reputation for a gorgeous country with warm people and a rich culture.
