Colombian army kills top FARC military leader

first_img The army said it has killed Jorge Briceno Suarez, who is also known as Victor Julio Suarez Rojas and the alias Mono Jojoy, the head of FARC’s military operations. By Dialogo September 23, 2010 For the past 40 years that was the news most awaited for by the majority of the Colombians, except for the “honorable senator” Piedad Cordoba and her group of flunkies that elect that traitor; that we are to suppose are guerillas disguised as democratic leaders. Colombia’s army said on September 23 it has killed a top leader with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the country’s oldest and fiercest rebel insurgency. The operation was a joint effort in La Macarena camp between the National Police, the National Army of Colombia and the Air Force, said a report in Colombian daily El Tiempo. center_img Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, in New York for the yearly United Nations Summit, announced, “This is Operation Welcome to the FARC”, reported the same daily.last_img read more

Walton still not ready to return

first_img Two-man game Jackson was asked about Kobe Bryant’s balancing act between taking over games and trusting his teammates. He did both in the fourth quarter Monday, scoring 11 points but also giving up the ball to Smush Parker for a key 3-pointer. “We really think that if we distribute the ball at the right time in the game when the focus comes on him, there’s some easy shots that people have,” Jackson said. “If he trusts his teammates in those situations, we’re really a difficult team to stop.” Page turner Jackson put off giving a book to each player on this trip, one of his annual traditions as a coach. He was unable to find a book that was out of print and went off on his players recently that they weren’t going to appreciate them anyway. “All you guys can do is play video games and watch porn movies,” Jackson said. Jackson added that he probably will hand out books on the Lakers’ four-game trip in March. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

ATLANTA – Never would the Lakers have guessed when they left on this eight-game trip more than a week ago that they might arrive home with forward Luke Walton still struggling to return from a sprained right ankle. Walton suffered the injury Jan. 26 and has missed six games as a result. He hoped to return Monday against the Hawks, then talked about using a two-day break between games to get ready to play Thursday at Detroit. But Walton was unable to practice Tuesday and his availability is in question with the Lakers playing back-to-back games against the Pistons and Toronto Raptors. They will finish this trip Sunday at Cleveland. “He’s getting frustrated with the situation,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “It’s longer than he ever thought it would be. It’s just difficult for him to sustain it when you’re on the road like this and you’re trying to find a way to get out there and nothing seems to work right.” center_img Walton said Monday he woke up with the ankle feeling great. When he got on the floor at shootaround, however, Walton couldn’t shake the pain. The Lakers have had to scale him back from rehab work to treatment sessions. “I’m able to do more and more stuff,” said Walton, who originally was supposed to miss about a week. “I just can’t do the full-out running or the cutting yet. Until I can do that, I can’t play.” The Lakers have spent plenty of time this month worrying about sprained ankles. Kwame Brown was to fly to Indianapolis after practice to get a second opinion on his injured left ankle, which he rolled in a Dec. 31 game. Center Chris Mihm also is on this trip and was working out on an elliptical machine Tuesday. Mihm was supposed to be out for the season after undergoing a second ankle surgery but could return if his rehab continues ahead of schedule. “We’re certainly not trying to put any pressure on him to make a return this year,” Jackson said. “Just whatever happens. We hope that he has the opportunity but we’re certainly not counting on it.” last_img read more
