Discussion in 'Ecuador' started by Manolo, Sep 30, 2010.
I read that article and still had no idea what was going on and why.
This one provides a better background: http://www.eluniverso.com/2010/09/3...estar-sometidos-presidente.html?p=1354&m=2766
Damn this is no joke. Front page of CNN.
thanks to this bullshit my dad is stuck in Bogota right now and not able to catch the flight to Quito
Yeah in manta a few banks got robbed and a supermaxi, everything is shut down, shiz crazy :O
how long can this possibly last
I am really worries my Mom went there and was supposed to back tomorrow after only a week and they have cancelled her flight... sucks
at least she's in Ecuador. my dads in Colombia stranded and I haven't been in touch since this morning
Reminds me of September 11th. My dad was in Ecuador for my grandmother's funeral and he was supposed to fly back that morning. He was stuck in Guayaquil for another 4 days before he could come back.
I dont kno bro, but la policia nacional want to kill correa. I seen on the ecua news that the military was at the hospital where he's at and they're protecting him there. And a few militares got jumped by the police that were outside the hospital thats how crazy it is over there :O.
I bet Lucio Gutierrez is behind this..
Me and my dad were just talking about that. Supposedly he's in Spain right now so thats kind of suspicious. They also said the police were screaming "Viva Lucio." Correa will only gain popularity after this and I am really happy that nothing happened to him.
My dad shut the office, located in downtown GYE, today at 11am and sent all his employees home before things got out of hand. On his way home people threw rocks at his car.
That has nothing to do with correa just ppl being dumb thats all.
Well I'll let you guys figured it out who's behind this. this was an attempt to break the Venezuela/Bolivia/Cuba/Ecuador/Nicaragua alliance and bring back real Democracy back into the region. or should I say "Get their grip back on the region". Everyone knows that Correa is a Communist or should I say a socialistic communist? This might end up badly for the Big Good Cop, Bad Cop of the region. I guess everyone in south America is flying to Buenos Aires for an emergency meeting. Well, This might be the last attempt at a Coup in South America.
You cannot be serious. It has everything to do with Correa and his control of the country. Do you know that the TV stations were not allowed to show what was going on? Where is freedom of the press?
Correa's goal is to keep everything to himself and just release what he wants so the masses can continue to get brainwashed.
Is that the kind of country you want Ecuador to become? A North Korea? A Cuba? A Venezuela undder the power of Chavez? I don't.
Anyone surprised that the United States condemned the incident and supported Correa?
Not really, what else are they going to say? That they support the forceful removal of a nations leader? C'mon, that only happens when US Marines are involved.
Of course they would condemn the action.
All of these golpes or sacudidas, whatever you want to call it, it's just getting out of hand. For the police to do what they did was absolutely despicable. Above all else, there's a sacred trust between the citizens of the nation and their security- the cops. Just awful. That's why there's things like ongoing negotiations and collective bargaining to overcome these issues diplomatically. As for the issue with Correa, the dude was bound to face some issue like this at one point or another because of all the sectors that he's alienated or turned his back on during his tenure. On the other hand, the fact that Correa survived this whole thing means he can use it to his advantage and nobody can blame him for it. The game is politics! It's just as ugly here in the US and elsewhere. After a crisis, there will always be a 'rally around the flag' movement. Of course Lucio had his hand in this.
For our nation to progress, we need to have the democratic institutions and rule of law dictate how presidents come and go------through transparent elections!
My father said the same thing - that, unfortunately, this failed attempt will only make Correa stronger.
That and he met with Secretary of State Hilary Clinton in June.
He was American educated, so how did he become a Castro/Chavez Socialist?
The fact that he met with Hillary Clinton just means both countries were going through the political motions.
The fact that he studied in the US doesn't mean jack shit. There are plenty of Americans, born and raised, with higher levels of education and that have never left the US for extended periods of time and believe in the socialism/communism system too.
It's not even like believing in some sort of socialism is a bad thing
Of course not...just look at Obama!!!
This stuff happens every 2-3 years. Bucaram being overthrown is still in my memory even though I was pretty young.
