I mentioned last week the possibility that the phone tapping allegations against Colombia were intended to halt the slowly improving relations between Colombia and Ecuador. It appears that both Rafael Correa and Alvaro Uribe agree. That agreement is hopefully a good sign, as the two countries need to move closer if they have any hope of attacking the FARC along their shared border. Really, no good can come out of an indefinite break of diplomatic relations. It will certainly make Colombia less secure.
