The Death of Miller Perdomo: The Beginning of the End for El Mono Jojoy

first_imgBy Dialogo April 04, 2011 This is an excellent article that should be read by military and civilians on the continent, since it describes interesting details of how Operation Sodoma began to thicken, and in addition it is written by a real expert on the subject. Colonel Villamarín is a highly respected intellectual and appreciated here in New York. I read all the books written by Colonel Luis Villamarín. I am absolutely sure that if the Colombian military read all the literature written by him they would have more and better tools to fight terrorism. This particular article is great and very illustrative of the reality of war that is bleeding Colombia. Do not understand why neither the U.S. nor Colombia have forgotten to write in their full context the history of the Colombian conflict, well the truth be told, besides the well-documented books he has written Colonel Villamarín with articles of his authorship like this, there is no other document to help us tell the good readers best of what’s happening to us Latin Americans with the communist narco-threat. For his invite to the journal Dialogue, the U.S. Southern Command U.S. Army and the Colombian Army so that they agree with Colonel Villamarín and write thousands of episodes of the war in Colombia that cannot pass the collective forgetting, but if they take into account that the actors or many of them are still alive. We do not leave it for tomorrow or never this possibility. And you Colonel Villamarín never fail in this endeavor that your tenacity and perseverance will take you one day to achieve the Nobel Prize for Literature. You have the makings for it. It’s remarkable there are those who publish the FARC’s barbarities and how Colombian soldiers protect us from the communists. Sincerely Francisco Sandoval Colombian leader in Washington, D.C. Clear and very true That was the beginning of the end of Jojoy. Colonel Villamarin is absolutely right. Brave, clear and on point. The writer is brilliant and his prose is very precise. Outstanding narrative. Written clearly and in full knowledge. Congratulations to the author who shows the context in black and white of a reality that others hide. That’s how it is and how it happened. That was the beginning of Jojoy’s trip to burning in hell. While the euro was coming into effect in Europe as the sole currency of twelve countries, the United States was trying to land on Mars with the Mars Polar Lander probe, and a financial crisis that caused panic in all the financial markets was breaking out in Brazil, in Colombia peace talks were starting in San Vicente del Caguán between Andrés Pastrana’s administration and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. Hundreds of businesspeople terrified by the FARC were moving their capital out of the country. Some analysts of the conflict were pontificating about a ‘war of position.’ The Eastern Bloc was carrying out part of the Strategic Plan with the expansion of its squads into Cundinamarca. The Armed Forces had their hands tied and were badly led by those who sugarcoated the surrender of a battalion command post at the terrorists’ demand in San Vicente del Caguán. Jojoy paraded arrogantly around El Caguán. A talkative man, he spouted the intimidating creed designed by the Secretariat. Just like now, foolish journalists said that Jojoy was the militant wing, while Cano was the thoughtful and moderate wing, without understanding that both were terrorists and that Jojoy’s loquacity reflected the FARC Strategic Plan. In those days, Squad 51, led by Miller Perdomo, was already up to its criminal pursuits in Cundinamarca. Anxious to take the “war where it hurts the oligarchy most,” the full Secretariat, not just Jojoy, sent the Joaquín Ballén Squad to reinforce Perdomo in southeastern Cundinamarca. Perdomo was incorporated by the Communist Party into the FARC in El Meta. He was trained by Vietnamese, Salvadorans, Nicaraguans, and Cubans in the camps at Casa Verde and by members of the González Perdomo family, the members of which belonged to the FARC. Hand in glove with Nelson Robles from Squad 52 and Romaña from Squad 53, Perdomo committed a thousand misdeeds in southeastern Cundinamarca and extended his criminal activity into Ciudad Bolívar and the National University in association with ‘Chucho’ and Carlos Antonio Lozada, leaders of the FARC’s clandestine militias in Bogotá. The arrival of the Ballén Squad, agreed in the La Marranera camp in 1994, in Guayabetal, with the complicity of the priest Camilo, meant a major reinforcement of the FARC’s terrorist capabilities in this region of the country. All the members of “the Ballén” had received special-forces training and were fighters skilled in “penetrating” high-level objectives, commando operations, and spreading the political line among the masses. The squad’s second-in-command was Felipe Bohórquez, alias “El Llanero” [“The Plainsman”], an Araucanian peasant, brave, intelligent, and rash. His lover was Nancy, a beautiful peasant woman. As soon as they arrived in Cundinamarca, Miller began to send “El Llanero” on missions in order to separate him from Nancy and along the way, make her into yet another of his own lovers. Around the same time, Silvio, “El Pastuso,” the second-ranking leader of Squad 31, who worked very closely with Perdomo in terrorist activities on the Bogotá-Villavicencio road, was arrested near Guayabetal. Silvio denied to the authorities that he was a terrorist, and as a supposed peasant from the region, made a lying promise to turn over information about the activities of Perdomo, Robles, Romaña, and Joaquín “Garganta” [“Throat”], leaders of the FARC groups operating in the region of El Sumapaz. As was to be expected, the judges let him go, and Silvio returned to the squad, where he remarked that he had been informed on by a peasant from Pipral. Miller then ordered “El Llanero” to kill him as a snitch. When he arrived at the victim’s house, the naive peasant, accompanied by three children and a pregnant wife, offered him lunch. “El Llanero” felt himself incapable of committing the crime. Instead, he warned him to flee the region, because the FARC was going to kill him. When “El Llanero” told Perdomo the truth, the latter, blindsided, rebuked him: “You have the heart of a chicken.” As punishment, he sent him with a special commando to murder the solder on sentry duty at the La Australia military base, located on the outskirts of Bogotá heading toward the highlands of El Sumapaz. The incursion failed, because at the moment of the assault, another soldier reacted and took out of action the terrorist who was trying to steal the sentry’s rifle. “El Llanero” returned to the hideout with the bad news and, as an aggravating circumstance, found Nancy in Miller’s arms. Furious, “El Llanero” kicked the woman. Perdomo aimed his rifle at him, and the aggrieved guerrilla did the same. Several terrorists intervened and calmed the pair, but Perdomo warned him that he would bring him up before a council of war, after consulting Jojoy. For obvious reasons, Jojoy agreed with Perdomo and ordered that “El Llanero” be shot, but the radio operator warned him about the situation, and the condemned man escaped from the hideout with a grenade launcher, which he turned in to the first military unit he found. He then took advantage of the national government’s Reinsertion Plan. To top things off, Rossi – Perdomo’s second-in-command – was arrested in Pereira. According to his testimony, Perdomo was on his way, on board the ambulance of the San Juan de Sumapaz health clinic, to higher ground where he could get a better signal in order to call the relatives of kidnapping victims, from ten different cellular telephones, to get them to pay ransom. In a commando operation straight out of the movies, the soldiers infiltrated the area by night and in absolute silence, hidden among the underbrush, where they awaited the terrorist’s arrival. At nine o’clock in the morning, the vehicle appeared. Distrustful, Perdomo scanned the neighboring sector. Nancy, the former companion of “El Llanero,” got out calmly and unworriedly and urinated very near the head of one of the soldiers from the counter-guerrilla assault team. Perdomo made the first call and terrified one of his victims. He stopped making calls, suddenly shot his rifle at a soldier, and tried to get into the vehicle to escape, but a burst of fire left him lifeless. Nancy and another bodyguard fell at his side. When reinforcements were drawing close to the scene of events, Silvio, “El Pastuso,” came out of a house with an R-15 rifle and confronted the soldiers, but he too died with his bodyguard. The death of Miller Perdomo was a mortal blow to the FARC. It meant the death of a front leader, the loss of the first pillar in which Tirofijo, Jojoy, and the rest of the Secretariat had put their trust for the plan to enter Bogotá, and the loss of hundreds of electronic documents, difficulties in contacting the relatives of victims of kidnapping and extortion, scattering of the Bogotá urban militias, and in general, a severe setback for the FARC’s Strategic Plan. Thus, the death of Miller Perdomo in the highlands of El Sumapaz marked the start of the weakening of the Eastern Bloc and the end of the myth of El Mono Jojoy’s supposed invincibility. Then came Operation Berlin in Santander and the removal from action of Urías Cuéllar, Buendía, and other leaders whose mission was to intensify the war in Cundinamarca. The writing was on the wall for El Mono Jojoy.last_img read more

Is it a gamble? Andrea Agnelli thought about this carefully. “I won’t say whether it was a wise move to sack Sarri, because it is always sad when one of our own is dismissed.
