    ...not in Ecuador at large but within the national police force (and to some extent the Air Force).  The enlisted personnel want the leadership sacked, which Correa wouldn't do because (a) that's how you really get a military coup, and (b) it's his government that eliminated the benefits that the police are now protesting about.  

    I know that I'm a "move along, nothing to see here" guy when it comes to these stories, but that's from years of experience.  We didn't get war between Colombia and Venezuela and I don't believe we will get a coup in Ecuador.
