Abstract:

Absent political and military reforms, Colombia risks either becoming a narcostate or disintegrating. Popular discontent with government policies indicates Colombia is ripe for a dirty war. The FARC and ELN will continue their involvement in the drug business to increase their wealth. Insurgent activity will increase, especially in areas where government control is limited. The potential loss of democracy in Colombia threatens regional stability.
