Bias[edit]

Have to say this articles seem incredibly biased to me in favour of the conservatives. It failts to contextualize the conflict and it limits itself to naming the liberal and communist guerrillas as the sources of the conflict when most serious Colombian historians agree it was caused mainly by the violence sponsored by the conservative regime against liberal peasents in the countryside and the subsequent response of the liberals in revenge attacks. This is widely detailed in "Condores no Entierran Todos los Dias" or "Condors are not buried every day" which talks about the "birds" (armed conservative groups) which operated as death squads in rural parts of Colombia. --201.233.80.148 (talk) 00:47, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

I concur. This is a very biased article. The quote "anarchists, socialists and communists burned churches and murdered nearly 7,000 priests, monks, and nuns" is moreover highly contentious. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.205.103.209 (talk) 12:44, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
