New York Post:

“Congratulations are in order for the people of Colombia, who, in a democratic referendum, have rejected the peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces known as FARC,” say the editors of The New York Sun.

Though weary after 52 years of conflict, they rightly rejected “a compromise with a nihilistic Marxist movement whose entry into peace talks was one of the most cynical maneuvers in the history of the Americas.”

And yet the now-rejected deal “was hailed by nearly every liberal paper and politician in the world (including Hillary Clinton).” The Colombian people “turned out to be smarter than the elites who rule them” and are “prepared to risk [more] war over a false peace.”
