Peru has captured the leader of the Shining Path, the vicious Marxist narco-terrorists responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people. He was wanted by both Peru and the United States.
The Maoist Shining Path is infamous for its brutality. Its leader, who was wounded during his capture, led one of two small separate remaining bands of the once sizable force that had been dealt a heavy blow twenty years ago with the killing of its first leader. It has still been responsible nevetheless for the deaths of 20-30 people per year. It is hoped that this capture will end the cause of establishing a socialist state that its leader admitted is impossible. The Peruvian government has been making gains against the rebels, as has Colombia against its Marxist terrorists who, like the Shining Path, also derive their income from the illegal production and sale of narcotics.
I congratulate Peru for its successful contribution to the War on Terrorism and the fight against the scourge of drugs.
