Ecuador - Attempted Right-wing Coup Defeated

Today there was an attempt by the police and parts of the military to overthrow the reformist government of Rafael Correa. It was defeated by popular mobilization and the refusal of the lower ranks of the military and a top general to support the plotters. The American corporate state and the Ecuadorian oligarchy must be scared if they are willing to attempt something like this. Mind you, they were successful in Honduras, but this time it looks like the psychopaths bit off more than they can chew. Correa promises to kick fascist ass (not in those words exactly, but he seems to be serious) lets hope he is and doesn't wimp out like Chavez did with his would-be killers. For more info see;
