If I thought the Biden Administration capable of sophistication, I might credit this as part of a carrot-and-stick approach with regard to the FARC and the so-called "FARC dissidents" who refuse to abide by the FARC's peace deal with the Colombian government. A carrot to the former militants who now work within the political system, with the stick of continued military support to the Colombian armed forces in the fight against the dissidents.

The "stick" would include 145 new M1117s being delivered from last month through 2022: https://www.ejercito.mil.co/with-us-...-capabilities/

I'm pretty sure the ASV deal goes back to at least 2020, so the only real credit to the Biden Admin is that they didn't derail it.
