If Raul Castro as the new leader of Cuba will seek to link more to his country on the world market and to the rest of the continent and the European Union, Raul Reyes was the Chancellor of the FARC which sought to make that their movement is accepted throughout the hemisphere as a belligerent force able to be officially recognized. The FARC know that they lost one of their key boxes and this embolden Uribe and their armed forces. However, this will reset to new boxes in his replacement and will want to take advantage of the tragedy to turn Reyes into a martyr and a symbol of how Bogota has not hesitated to violate the sovereignty of another nation or affect the process of negotiations hostage pro-liberacion.
