Why this hero worship

of Ecuador? Is it because, verbally, they are sticking it to the States?
Is it the crowd cheering the "underdog" who pokes sticks at the bully, because they themselves are too chickenshite to do it?
Ecuador never has been, and never will be, a bastion of human rights.
No Human Rights for those who speak out about the hand picked judiciary, and are then punished by them, fast diminishing Rights for journalism, and screw anyone who gets in the way of PetroEcuador...you are less than human, and have been for a long, long time, the ignored,endangered, tribes of the Amazon. A Human Rights catastrophe.
The involvement of Ecuador is not an accident...it is a strategy.
