Colombia is an important state in the trafficking of cocaine to North America.

Colombia is a nation state in South America. It has been termed a US bridgehead in that continent.[citation needed]

Drug trafficking

Full article: Rated 4/5 Illegal drug trade

Plan Colombia was officially intended to decrease cocaine production and export to the US. On its announcement, Peter Dale Scott predicted that increased involvement of the US military would have an entirely converse effect. His prediction, that the amount of cocaine produced and exported would increase, proved correct.

Since 2002, the second largest provider of military aid and training (after the US) to Colombia has been the UK.[1]
