Operation Continuing Promise in S. America isn't as safe as you believe.
I totally disagree.
Colombia is a prime example. They're currently engaged in fighting with FARC rebels (one of its helicopters was recently destroyed when it landed in a minefield) and the presence of US Marines on the ground operating with Colombian Naval Infantry (one FARCs biggest enemies) is going to put our forces into harms way in a place where many American's won't see it coming.
Operation Continuing Promise might seem easy, but it could easily go sideways if they're not careful. S. America is a dangerous place. You heard it here first.
