Ecuador President Accuses Police of Coup Attempt

Military vehicles patrolled the streets of Quito, the capital of Ecuador, over the weekend, but there have been no further protests since last week when army commandos rescued US-educated President Correa. Correa has embellished his rescue by accusing the police of attempting a coup. Correa is milking the crisis as a victim; he was in danger from an escalating street encounter that he provoked, which got out of control. The police had guns, a complaint about pay cuts, mobility, and an opportunity, but they had no plan - otherwise Correa would be dead. The police had Quito in their grasp, but no one took charge of the mutiny to convert it into a coup. There was no coup attempt.

North Korea Cites US Threat as Reason to Expand Nuclear Arsenal

At the United Nations last week, Vice Foreign Minister Pak Kil Yon said that North Korea would continue to expand its nuclear arsenal in order to deter what it perceives as American and South Korean aggression in the region. He said North Korea has vowed to strengthen its nuclear arsenal because of the threat from the United States, and that as long as U.S. nuclear aircraft carriers sail around North Korea, the country's nuclear deterrent should not be abandoned but strengthened further. Pak's statement is somewhat discordant compared to recent North Korean behavior that promotes an international environment of reduced tension while leadership issues are deliberated in Pyongyang.
