In other words, Correa, like Venezuela's Chevez, is the rare foreign leader who represents the interests of his own country instead of Washington's interest.

Washington uses the various corrupt NGOs and the puppet government in Colombia as weapons against Correa and the Ecuadoran government. Many believe that it is only a matter of time before Washington succeeds in assassinating Correa.

American patriots, who feel that they should be on "their" government's side regardless of the facts, would do well to remember what true patriotism is. For Americans, patriotism has always meant allegiance to the Constitution, not to the government. The oath is to defend the Constitution against enemies domestic and foreign. The Bush and Obama regimes have proven themselves to be the Constitution's worst enemies. It is not possible for a true patriot to support a government that destroys the Constitution. The United States is the Constitution. Our country is not the Obama regime, the Bush regime, or some other administration. Our country is the Constitution. The Constitution is our country.

Beyond obligations to one's own country, all humans have a responsibility to human life itself. Washington's puppet states, such as the NATO countries, Japan, and Colombia, by providing cover and support for Washington's aggression are enabling Washington to drive the world into World War III.

The temptation of Washington's money easily overwhelms weak characters such as Tony Blair and David Cameron. But the governments of NATO countries and other accommodating states are not only selling out their own peoples by supporting Washington's wars of aggression, they are selling out humanity. Washington's hubris and arrogance grow as Washington bumps off country after country. Sooner or later Russia and China, will realize that they themselves are targets and will draw firmer lines. Arrogance will prevent Washington from acknowledging the lines, and the final war will be launched.

Washington's hegemonic impulse is driving the world to destruction. The peoples of the world should realize this and force their governments to stop enabling Washington's aggression.
