First, I would like to thank you for your visit. In Spaceship Harvey you'll find posts and links which interest me and, hopefully, you as well. This blog will mainly - but not always - concentrate on topics of general interest such as current events, sports, national and international political news. I'll also include off the cuff stuff which have nothing to do with anything and stuff that I just make up. This blog will also carry my personal opinion on a variety of subjects of interest to me, ranging from military history to politics, environmental wackos, dangerous animals and religious nuts. As you will see my opinions will sometimes be controversial, but I make a lot of stuff up. Profanity and abusive language will not be tolerated- that includes the use of gratuitous insults but no topic is off limits. Unlike many other blogs Spaceship Harvey will contain my views on the subject, not just a copy and link to a news item - unless I post a lifted article that I liked. This blog encourages feedback by use of the comment link.

Uranium seized from FARC guerrilas

More evidence that justifies Colombia's raid into FARC controlled area inside Ecuador was unearthed yesterday when Colombian police raided a FARC stronghold in the vicinity of Bogotá. 66 pounds of uranium was seized as a result of information obtained from a captured laptop computer:

"The government said information about the stash of uranium was found earlier this month in computer files left behind by top guerrilla leader Raul Reyes, who was killed in a Colombian bomb strike against a FARC camp in neighboring in Ecuador."

Besides information about the uranium stash links between Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and FARC were also confirmed by incriminating evidence within the computer files. Now that FARC is dealing in uranium it's time that a more serious approach be taken by OAS member states in dealing with the Venezuelan leader.
