    Very interesting and strange. I'm no expert, but it seems as if he had some sort of mental illness going on. Hiding in the jungle for 30 years? Decapitating farmers and killing and eating their cattle?

    I disagree about the mental illness. That's some serious dedication! It's admirable and awe inspiring. It's the same sort of laser focus and dedication seen throughout history. Like getting on a boat to sail across the ocean...to settle the west...or the people committed to colonize mars. All IMO

    All I know is I wouldn't want to be innocently tending to my farm 30 years after a war and have my head chopped off....I'd be seriously pissed! ;) I don't think sailing across the ocean is comparable to this guy! JMO
