Yes your right, Sands is an iconic figure, but do those who put him on that pedestal really know the history behind this man and his advocating of violence over peace.

He was an icon in Colombia until three people showed up and Colombians saw the type off people they looked upon as icons do not dersrve it.

Thankfully the internet is allowing people to get more information about this place we call home and the damage the various terrorist groups did to it. Information that tells how it is and was, to allow them to see the full picture not the blinkered biased views of what ever side.

All I can say prepare for a lot of icons getting dropped from their pedestal.
