Ecuador grants a certain person political asylum: http://www[dot]bbc[dot]co[dot]uk/news/uk-19281492
This has earned Ecuador the wrath of the "free" nations of the West.
Recall, Sweden wants him extradited from the UK, where he now is, on a dubious sexual assault charge. He has been hiding out in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London-- hence the asylum application, now granted.
The UK has threatened to revoke Ecuador's Embassy in London of its status and will just go in and arrest this guy. Watch for every bought and paid for analyst in this country to tell you why that is so much different from the Iranians violating our embassy's sovereign territory in 1979. After all, this guy embarrassed the United States.
Ecuador should be nervous. We might bring democracy to their country, too.
