Ecuador -- Gutierrez in crisis -- El Loco returns

Publius Pundit has an excellent series of posts documenting the latest series of crises in Ecuador.

President Lucio Gutierrez’s ineptitude and the overt corruption of government institutions have sparked nation-wide protests against his regime. The military, after initially expressing support for the president, has withdrawn. Meanwhile disgraced former president, Abdala Bucaram ["El Loco"], has returned to Ecuador and is promising to "rescue" the country. Neither man has any credibility with the public. The entire situation seems to be spinning out of control.

Read Publius here. This is one of the best blogs out there -- worth visiting daily or even more frequently if you want to keep abreast of revolutionary movements throughout the world.
