JOINT TASK FORCE  'OMEGA'

HISTORY

The philosophy of the Joint Task Force 'Omega' is given by its own name. It is baptized with the representation of the end which makes more praiseworthy the action and the work of each of its members. Each of the components was taken as the necessary resource to find the end of the largest armed conflict in South America. Every success and every mistake would directly contribute to the military defeat of the Farc taking it to a state of necessity for a negotiated solution. The building of the military victory was created from the strategic rearguard of the most dangerous threat system the Nation once had.
