The Colombian Conflict was a conflict in which Ghost Recon took part in 2010.
In the wake of the events of Island Thunder, Cuba settles into a fragile new state of normalcy. The victorious presidential candidate declares an amnesty, and most former FDG (La Frente Democractica de la Gente or the People's Democractic Front) members accept, laying down their weapons. However, all is not entirely well. Even as UN peacekeepers leave the island, former FDG operatives reveal in debriefings that their organization's links to Colombian narco-terrorist operations run deeper than anyone suspected. Ariel Priego's backers are unhappy with the turn of events in Cuba and are regrouping in anticipation of making another try at seizing power in Havana.
Meanwhile, the always-precarious situation in Colombia explodes. A fragile ceasefire between guerrilla groups and the right-wing paramilitaries collapses in a flurry of gunfire and car bombings. Explosions rock major Colombian cities,and government troops seem unable to stop the violence. The United Nations declares a humanitarian disaster as the entire country is caught in the crossfire, and at the request of the Colombian government, peacekeeping forces are sent in. Most of them are assigned to safeguard major cities and transportation centers and to ensure stability in populated areas.
The Ghosts, on the other hand, get something a little more interesting to do. Colombian intelligence, working with its Cuban counterparts, has discovered that the driving force behind the new wave of violence crisis in Colombia now has international implications. The Ghosts, with the blessing of the Colombian and Cuban governments, are tasked with a deadly assignment: Go into the Colombian interior, find the source of the uprising, and eliminate it.
