So basically less than one percent effectively decided the country should remain plunged into a bloody conflict.

F**king great.

No. 51%.

Giving terrorists limited immunity is a necessary evil for ending the war, but it's hard to be enthusiastic about voting for a necessary evil. I think that's one of the reasons (in addition to the weather) why turn out was so low. A lot of people realized that "Yes" winning was the best outcome, but they didn't want PERSONALLY be responsible for voting to gift the FARC seats in Congress and whatnot. So they stayed home on the assumption that everyone else would go to the polls and vote "Yes".
