Peru's Garcia: Let the narco-bombing begin

Peru to bomb Amazon cocaine labs

The Peruvian President, Alan Garcia, has ordered the use of warplanes to destroy clandestine airstrips and drug laboratories in the Amazon jungle.

Mr Garcia said drug barons must also be pursued and warned that Peru could face an insurgency funded by illicit drugs.

Peru must kill the drug-trafficking trade or have to deal with an insurgency like that of neighbouring Colombia, Mr Garcia said.

Peru is the second-largest producer of cocaine in the world after Colombia.

In a characteristically dramatic speech, Mr Garcia said Peru must do away with every last jungle drug factory and secret airstrip by either bombing or machine-gunning them.

Alright Presidente Garcia, time to roll up the sleeves and get tough.

This could get interesting.
