Colombia's history has been marked by the tragedy of a four decades war between the State and guerrilla groups (FARC and ELN), as well as paramilitarists. The country's past goes well beyond this conflict, but, sadly, this is what Colombia is most known for. However, since Alvaro Uribe, the current president of Colombia, has been in office, national security and the confrontation of these groups have been successful achievements.
