I believe that we should give guerrilla groups a place in the government for two reasons. Firstly by giving guerrilla groups a place in the government we see that we can reduce violence. For example right now in Colombia there is a peace deal going on with the FARC who have been causing lots of harm to Colombian citizens. This is why we should give them a government position because by stopping them using armed weapons we see that we can stop them from harming the population. And if you think that Colombian people would vote for the FARC party you are wrong. This is because they have hurt the people so much that it is impossible for them to get voted in. In conclusion by giving them a place in the government we eliminate their use of armed weapons and make it harder for them to have a significant impact on the country because they have hurt the country so much throughout the past.

So... You want a terrorist group to circumvent the will of the public with the consent of the government simply so they'll stop?

Please tell me how this can end well.
