Neighborhood News

I took the day off yesterday. I had internet problems and was suffering from LAS. For those of you unfamiliar with that it is a disease afflicting many, better known as Lazy Ass Syndrome.

Meanwhile there are interesting developments in the neighborhood. Colombia launched a raid into Ecuador and killed a top FARC rebel which has caused Ecuador to send troops to the border and of course Hugo Chavez is threatening to also become involved. Perhaps this will develop into a scenario that will hasten his demise.

Elsewhere, the United States and Canada signed a military agreement on February 14th allowing the armed forces from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a domestic civil emergency, even one that does not involve a cross-border crisis. What is this all about and why is there almost no mention of it anywhere?
