Ecuador's Coup That Wasn't

Ecuador's Coup That Wasn't

Commented Oct 7, 2010 at 11:51:37 in World

“This is another CIA classical coup, with long and careful planning, carried out by the local obscure power groups under the pretext of a supposed loss of laborer benefits of the least educated and formal institutions of Ecuador, a heavily armed unscrupulous police force, that serves itself all it can and when it can.... except for the elite SWAT teams that function with different spirit of service to society and are the brave ones that have saved the President from a clear assassination attempt.... reasons to kill the President could run in to the dozens, with such interest groups around that have a real power to be above the law, I'm so sorry to see a nation that has never really had the chance to solidify its democratic institutions.... due to these miserable and miniscules groups, that are of the idea and practice that only dumb people pay taxes..... President Correa has a tough job ahead, the ignorance and noncompliance to the law by the power groups is obnoxious.”

“The total police force in Ecuador numbers 40,000.... it's quite impossible to have a revolt overnight with such a military disciplined group, this shows that the obscure power groups aided by the Company has planned to hit and overtake a Democratic elected President.... but their mistake is that the President has over 75% support of the people....so now what is next? A stronger President who is going to come out hitting back.”

“Thanks to the stubbornest actions of the Colombian oligarchs, after 60 years of civil war, the FARC and paramilitaries operate their lucrative business (just like Al Capone did in Chicago in the prohibition) from countries of Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, and from Venezuela, since the Amazon jungle permits easy cover for their drug trafficking. If the present Colombian logic is true, from the supposed evidence presented at OAS, then all of the countries above are responsible of the FARC's existence and operation. How near sited is this assumption! Quite ignorant to the historic birth of the FARC and to the real logistics that are necessary to control this problem on the ground, I should say that problem lies in the consumption side of the market, which is confirmed by the barbaric internal war that Mexico carries on with the final distributors of the drug to the US. Accusing Chavez is the back side for another dilemma, he sits on top of the world's largest oil deposit, which he knows it, and the US is trying to recuperate after it lost it when the Venezuelan oligarchs where kicked out of power by Chavez. Why do you suppose the sudden need for new seven US air bases in Colombia? This is the real reason why Uribe, a Bush and lately an Obama puppet, is giving his last and final strike at Chavez. But everybody is into a surprise. Chavez is no dummy! He is a lot smarter that any of the puppeteers around.”
