Ecuador wants a military base in Miami

Maybe it's close to where Anthony lives

Quote:
NAPLES (Reuters) - Ecuador's leftist President Rafael Correa said Washington must let him open a military base in Miami if the United States wants to keep using an air base on Ecuador's Pacific coast.

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 counter-narcotics 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," Correa said in an interview during a trip to Italy.

The US Embassy in Quito has a different POV.

After reading the US Embassy page, president Correa's demand takes on a kind of humorous angle.
