Please read this....I hate to make this look like a chatroom because of my response to the heat I've been receiving (I guess I deserve it as well), but I figured I just HAVE to respond, and thus let people know what I truly am.

To start with, I am sorry for my opinionism intruding when I was defining Colombia. By nature, Colombia is a beautiful country. Latin countries are beautiful generally. What I like about Colombia is their coffee, which is the finest in the world.
I am sorry that I said it's "the most dangerous country in the world". Iraq really is, but that's because it's under anarchy. I only said it was dangerous because of what it's going through, and that for Americans it's dangerous. The truth is, I only know what I hear & read about Colombia. What makes Colombia so dangerous is that the FARC has waged a decades-long war with the current government, and I heard about how American tourists are "held for ransom". The truth to this is that there are said to be bounties placed on American tourists, possibly by the FARC....and the rewards are high. I have noticed that there are lots of places in Colombia that are actually impoverished, and it is understandable that one would do anything for money, especially if they have a dying family. I just don't believe that Americans should be thee target to kill. I personally am fed up with how Americans are bashed left and right, and in essence, the reason they are hated and despised is because they exist.

Also, just so you know : I NEVER SAID I HATED COLOMBIA. I DON'T HATE ANYONE OR ANYTHING. HATRED IS A FOOL'S WAY.

If the FARC can be dealt with, Colombia would be a much safer country. The reason the US doesn't help is because we believe in freedom, and even privacy. Therefore we don't barge into a country without proper negotiations. America is NOT an empire like everyone loves to think nowadays.

So I thought I'd clear this up. Once again, I am sorry. And also once again : I DON'T HATE COLOMBIA (I love their coffee, and I'm certain that, like in other latin countries, their women are beautiful, but then again I am a lady-lover). You guys may hate me, but I don't hate you.
"If you don't want to accept my apologies, that's OK too. But take my advice : if you stoop to hatred, then you're no different from those who hate you & your country."

Colombia is not THE most dangerous country in the world, but unfortunately it is well up there. Is it a fact? Yes, but a sad one. However, there is SO much more to Colombia than the stereotypes of cocaine and murder (I for one don't remember saying otherwise), and its many virtues far outweigh its few faults, which occur to a greater extent in Brazil, Venezuela, South Africa, etc.

First of all, Colombia is rich in mineral and agricultural resources: coffee, emeralds, flowers, etc. The quality of its coffee and emeralds is world-renowned and makes them very desirable.

Second, it is one of the most geographically varied nations in the world: it's the only country in South America (I'm not including Mexico or Central America) with an Atlantic AND a Pacific coastline, three ranges of the Andes run north-south through it (Bogotá is built on a plateau in the Andes), the Amazon jungle comprises much of the southeastern part of the country, and Cristobal Colon, South America's second-tallest mountain, is at its northern end.

Third, Colombians have a reputation in South America for being very cultured and sophisticated. Bogotá is one of Latin America's great cultural centers, and is renowned and beloved by travellers who have visited it (I'm not one of them...yet). And its murder rate, as mentioned before, is a LOT lower than my own country's capital, Washington DC; though both cities are getting better year by year.

So don't take offense if some people are a bit ignorant of the facts; you think it's easy for me living in New York and having to tolerate the outdated, uninformed, nasty crap I've heard about my city? Laugh, inform them that they're wrong, and move on to the next.
Viva Colombia.

People who have never been to Colombia need to realize that their comments are only based on ignorance and what the media has fed them. Mr.Valdez and Mr.Escobar are not the only people to come out of the country. People, like the Idiot that came up with definition #6 of Colombia, were probably dumped by a hot colombian chick because of performance reasons, and now refer to them as stuck up. Colombia is filled with rolling green mountains, beautiful flowers, oceans, emeralds, culture, fantastic food and gorgeous kind men and WOMEN!
Nelly couldn't perform in bed so the hot Colombian chick told him to take a hike.

Bogotá D.C.
Country poorly portrayed in the film "Mr. and Mrs. Smith": helicopters bombing Bogotá, an apocalyptic scenario with houses on fire, illustrating the capital as a rural little town with no buildings or evidence of any urban development. Hotels with fans give the idea of an unbearable heat, even though Bogotá is 2640 meters (8661 feet) above sea level. No pavement on the streets and a bar filled with rioted chicken. The actors who play the part of the police men in this Colombia deplorable cartoon wear weird uniforms and speak with Mexican/Caribbean accents even though Bogotá is not anywhere near the coast and some Colombian regions are recognized for having one of the best Spanish in Central and South America, and are even criticized/made fun of by the rest of the country for having a somewhat stiff accent.

Less than four weeks after its release in Colombia, the General Secretary of the City Hall, Enrique Borda, sent a letter of protest to the director Doug Liman. In the letter he states that "It is evidenced, beyond any doubt, that the director and his production crew show a total level of ignorance by portraying (the city) as incipient (...), primitive, with scarce hotel infrastructure, dominated by poverty, depressed, disorganized, with high levels of violence; in conclusion, totally chaotic and not attractive at all". Borda also points out in his text that Colombia was awarded with the title of "City of Peace" by the Unión de Ciudades Capitales Iberoamericanas (UCCI) and was declared "World Book Capital 2007" by UNESCO.
Doug Liman should have done a Google search.
