Venezuela & Colombia make Peace 8.14.2010

Good news
The 2 neighbors in South America have made peace with each other
Colombia's new president "Santos" reaches out and after a talk with Chavez the two countries agree to quit the fighting and make peace.

[the new president, Juan Manuel Santos, has done something that seems quite unexpected: he made peace with Venezuela. In fact, he ran much of his election campaign only a few weeks ago with one of the main planks being how he was going to be tougher with Venezuela, with all kinds of rhetoric against Hugo Chávez, the president there. Now the two have met, and they seem to have reconciled.]
