An article about my people:
This holiday season, the Colombian military is trying a unique angle to get guerrillas to lay down their arms: It is creating Christmas trees deep in the jungle in hopes the holiday spirit will tug the rebels back home.
The first tree of “Operation Christmas” was decorated in the jungle of southern Colombia, the military said.
Two units in two Blackhawk helicopters dropped in on a supply path that the guerrillas are known to use and picked a 25-meter (82-foot) tree to decorate with sparkling blue lights.
Not sure that some of the nastiest rebels in the world will concede because of Christmas trees
