Colombians split on peace talks

Colombians have mixed feelings about the peace process and negotiating with FARC rebels.

    Colombia's FARC rebels have restarted their peace talks with the government and both sides are meeting in Cuba to try to put an end to a 50-year conflict.

    But while some rural Colombians in FARC strongholds hope the talks will lead to a less impoverished lifestyle, other Colombians believe the government should not negotiate with the rebels.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
