I think the the policy of the ecuadorian government should be looked at real close. the people are not getting the share of the money that the government is getting. from companies out side the ecuadorian borders. Why is the presedent holding information. Banks are closing and account holders money are not being returned. Were is the money? hmm. We have oil,diamonds,produce,suger,tou rism,minerals that othere govrnments pay millions for including the U.S.A and why is the ecuadorian government running them out? hmm. So why do we have colombian killers in our soil? hmm.

If Correa bans the U.S. and any other foreign bases, then by law The FARC has to be banned from Ecuador. What is good for the goose, is good for the gander.

Very good comments Marco and Puchurunga! I hope more people like you keep asking these questions. Especially in Ecuador itself. The Correa government no doubt won't like these type of questions. But they must be asked.
