Rafael Correa – Hugo Chavez’s Political Successor
December 18, 2014

…Many in Latin America believe that after Hugo Chavez, Rafael Correa became America’s main target. Correa’s decision to close the US air base at Manta was taken particularly badly by Washington. The agreement on its use expired in 2009, and Correa announced that the contract would not be extended. Washington was asked to open an Ecuadorian base in the US on a reciprocal basis. «That’s not how we do things», replied the US State Department. Ecuador’s response came immediately: «In which case, there will not be a US military base in Ecuador either»… Rafael Correa has no intention of changing his country’s foreign policy, which is geared towards Latin American integration, the development of a multipolar world, and the maintenance of close relations with countries like China and Russia. For these reasons, John Kerry’s visit to Ecuador, which has been rumoured in the media all year, will not take place.

December 28, 2013

Rafael Correa is one of those Latin American presidents which ruling circles in the U.S. consider uncontrollable and thus especially dangerous. To get rid of such politicians, Washington makes use of a wide arsenal of means, from interfering in election processes to physical elimination. After the strange death of Hugo Chavez, who led Latin America's resistance against the Empire, it  is Correa who is increasingly seen as his successor, the leader of the "populist forces" on the continent…

Ecuador and US Fake Peacefulness

…Washington surreptitiously spreads around the idea of the Ecuadorian President being unacceptable. Let it be anyone else but not him! The State Department and special services Correa as a probable political and ideological successor of Venezuelan President Chavez on the continent… Ambassador Namm and his team of provocateurs may be in the midst of events. Domingo Paredes has not called the names of those who are behind the attempted subversive actions aimed at frustration of the elections. But Ecuador is not kind of a puppet on a string. Namm should be ready for unexpected turn of events.

 

Ecuador: US intelligence against Rafael Correa
October 13, 2011

After a scandal following disclosures from WikiLeaks, the relations between Ecuador and the US got strained… I can imagine US spies reading Philip Agee`s 'Inside the company: CIA Diary'. Agee used to work in the US embassy in Quito in 1960-1963 and later fled to Cuba. His book provides an 'insider' knowledge of the CIA and shows us what a huge gap there is now between the CIA of the late 1960s and the 2000s. Meanwhile, the number of US agents coming to Ecuador keeps on increasing, promising new challenges to the Correa government…
