Correa suggests base in Miami
NAPLES — Ecuador’s leftist president, Rafael Correa, said Washington must let him open a military base in Miami if the U.S. wants to keep using an air base on Ecuador’s Pacific coast.
Mr. Correa has refused to renew Washington’s lease on the Manta air base, set to expire in 2009. U.S. officials say it is vital for counternarcotics-surveillance operations on Pacific drug-running routes.
“We’ll renew the base on one condition: that they let us put a base in Miami — an Ecuadorean base,” Mr. Correa said during a trip to Italy.
Good job Ecuador!

He’s visited Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Germany and France already. I probably missed other countries as well. The people of all those countires and their leaders greeted him like he was the President of the United States. Look at the pictures below. Do they look like a senator visiting or a President visiting the country?
