“If We Don’t Do Something, We Will Have Our Own FARC,” Says Chief Of Peruvian Army

first_imgBy Dialogo April 20, 2009 The general commander of the Peruvian Army, Otto Guibovich, said in an interview with the newspaper El Comercio that if they fail to adequately confront the Shining Path (Sendero Luminoso), that organization could develop into a group like the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Guibovich refers to the ongoing changes that the remaining members of the Shining Path are experimenting with in the coca zone of the valley of the Apurimac and Ene rivers (VRAE) where, using money they receive from their relationship with drug traffickers, they are becoming increasingly better equipped and more closely connected with the local population. “The Path has changed its relationship with the population (…), they do not deprive them of their properties (…), now they go to a town and provide its inhabitants with drinkable water, in another they build a sport field or paint the school,” said the head of the Peruvian Army. On the subject of weapons, Guibovich told El Comercio that, according to reports from 2008, the remaining members of the Shining Path may possess “17 grenade launchers, two anti-aircraft and four terrestrial machine guns, and over 400 armed members.” “If we don’t do something, they will get more powerful, and by the time we understand the situation, we will have our own group like the FARC,” added the general commander. According to Guibovich, the group gets the money necessary for this development from its dealings with drug traffickers. “They maintain an ideological part, not as much as they did in the 90s, but living on extortion and drug trafficking,” said the Peruvian soldier, who added that, because of this, the Path “has a lot of money.” Given this growth, Guibovich pledges to work with the army to support the population, in order to keep the peasants in the area from supporting the armed group. “It is like nothing we’ve done before, but the work is slow. There is no infrastructure, no drinking water, no health; we are working on it,” said the general commander. This situation also covers military officers in the VRAE, since their budget, in Guibovich’s words, “is never sufficient.” “We will build six antiterrorist bases, but not for more. We aren’t complaining, but it would be good to improve the budget,” he said. According to Guibovich, this improvement would also include buying new equipment and weapons for troops, a task that is slowed down by state bureaucracy. Last week 14 soldiers, including a minor, were killed during an ambush in VRAE, an event that was later claimed by the terrorist group Shining Path.last_img read more

Heartache for England amid bruising day for football

first_imgHodgson’s team will have to beat a Wales boosted by their opening 2-1 defeat of Slovakia.Real Madrid star Bale slammed a dipping free kick over the Slovakia wall that gave goalkeeper Matus Kozacik no chance and set Wales on the way to victory.Substitute Ondrej Dodu equalised for Slovakia but Wales replacement Hal Robson-Kanu, who is currently without a club, hit the winner nine minutes from the end.Bale called the victory “just a memorable moment, a historic moment for our country.”Bale said Welsh thoughts were already turning to their clash with Group B rivals England on Thursday.“We’re not thinking about this game any more, it’s on to England,” he said. “We’ve done the first part, now two more to go.”Switzerland’s Group A match against Albania had been billed as the clash of brothers Granit and Taulant Xhaka playing for opposing sides.Granit’s side won the Group A encounter, but neither brother shone. Instead, Fabien Schaer’s powerful header secured the win after Albania captain Lorik Cana was sent off.Hoffenheim centre back Schaer rose above the Albanian defence after just five minutes to head in from a corner by Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri.Cana was given a second yellow card after 36 minutes when he handled on the edge of the penalty area.Schaer said the goal was his answer to critics of his performances before the championship.Albania never gave up and Switzerland failed to nail the match despite their numerical advantage.“Afterwards we got a bit too passive,” Schaer said. “There were also a certain amount of nerves at the end.”Albania boss Gianni De Biasi said the tension got to his players taking part in their first big tournament. “We needed a good start and that didn’t happen. The pressure got to us and for 20 minutes we were under par.”UEFA could order an inquiry into the troubles inside the Marseille stadium, as it is responsible for the complex during the match.Reports said a charge by Russian fans — whose country will host the 2018 World Cup — into an English section caused brief panic inside the stadium.England fans also blamed the latest clashes in Marseille’s Vieux-Port district on Russians who charged at them.“There were about 100 Russians, they just came out of nowhere, something was thrown and that started it all off,” said one England supporter who asked not to be named.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 3 Stadium panicEngland’s players walked disconsolately off while more scuffles in the Stade Velodrome erupted as fans left. That added to pitched battles which left 31 injured in the Marseille port district earlier. One Englishman was in a critical condition.French police fired tear gas for a third straight day to break up fans who hurled chairs, bottles and other missiles.Another seven people were injured in Nice where Northern Ireland play Poland on Sunday. Bottles were hurled between rival groups in cafes in 45 minutes of urban brawling.Christian Estrosi, head of the regional government that takes in Nice and Marseille condemned what he called “barbarian hooligans”.England’s next game is against Wales in Lens on Thursday which could be both a sporting and police challenge. England fans react after the late equalliser by Russia.

Switzerland overcame 10-man Albania 1-0.But battles involving Russian and English fans on the streets of Marseille and inside the Stade Velodrome and brawls in Nice where Northern Ireland play Poland on Sunday tainted the sport.England had been heading for a win in their opening Group B match after midfielder Eric Dier fired a 20-metre free kick past veteran goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev with 13 minutes to play.But two minutes into injury time, England goalkeeper Joe Hart remained stuck to the ground as Berezutski rose to send a looping header into the net.England centre-back Gary Cahill called the 1-1 result “kick in the teeth”.“We got so close to a victory that would have been a deserved victory. So to lose it in the final minutes, it’s a tough pill to swallow,” said England manager Roy Hodgson.“It’s very disappointing,” said Dier. “We gave away a draw. We just didn’t see it out the right way. We have to pick ourselves up and go again.”last_img read more
