Columbia is now the third-largest recipient of US aid, the justification for which is the War on Drugs. In a clear, concise and sometimes bitterly funny lecture, Noam Chomsky shows us who is getting the money, who is producing and exporting the drugs and what the war on the ground in Columbia is really all about. In an ongoing debate about whether Columbia will become the 'next Vietnam', Chomsky's analysis provides an eloquent introduction to the Columbian elite, the role of the US media, and how 'development' works in Columbia.
