Colombia seizes $54m drugs cash
from the bbc:
The cash came from shipments delivered by the Norte del Valle cartel, which Washington says has moved more than 500 tons of cocaine to the US.
The first stash of $19m was found in vacuum packed blocks hidden behind a false wall in Cali.
Three other hoards were found earlier this week around the city.
President Alvaro Uribe said he wanted to congratulate the police for a "great accomplishment".
"This is a positive step toward having a Colombia without rebel organisations, without paramilitaries, without drug traffickers or corruption," he told reporters.
that’s complete bollocks, and rhetoric, mr. uribe. it’s impossible to stop a product from being sold that has a 17,000% profit.
that’s why nobody’s done it. including yours and the united states government.
