The government must also urgently reintegrate some 25,000 FARC guerillas and their families under the terms of the 2016 peace treaty that ended a half-century of brutal civil war.Colombians have been sympathetic to their neighbors in part because many remember that during the FARC insurgency and related drug wars, Venezuela absorbed hundreds of thousands of Colombian refugees.Moreover, during Venezuela's boom years, when oil prices were high, and the socialist regime had not yet decimated production, several million Colombians were able to find work in Venezuela.More forward-looking Colombian leaders, including the new president, Ivan Duque, argue privately that humane and decent treatment of Venezuelan refugees will benefit Colombia in the long run, after the regime falls and Venezuela again becomes one of Colombia's largest trading partners.What is known is that after many years of catastrophic economy policy, starting under the late President Hugo Chavez and continuing under his successor, Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela's regime has squandered an inheritance that includes some of the world's largest proven oil reserves.In response to the domestic and regional crises generated by the Maduro regime, the U.S. has put in place severe trade and financial sanctions, and Trump has reportedly floated the idea of invading Venezuela.
