How To Implement Ron Paul’s Foreign Policy?

I received an e-mail the other day concerning our military base in Ecuador (Manta Air Base). The sender was informing many about an excerpt from Reuters. Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa said in a statement the other day that the United States must allow Ecuador to build a base in Miami, FL if we wish to renew the lease of Manta Air Base in 2009.

Many people will probably sit back and laugh upon reading this news. The American people would not allow this to happen.

So how does this work to Ron Paul’s advantage? Dr. Paul has said on multiple occassions that we need to reduce the size of our foreign empire. By denying Ecuador’s request, we will shut down the base in Ecuador. Immediately, countries who are dissatisfied with our precense could apply the same methodology. Eventually, a large majority of our international military bases could be shut down, effectively implementing Ron Paul’s foreign policy.

The base is scheduled to close in 2009, so President Bush and Congress would have to make a decision on whether or not to accept or deny Ecuador’s request. Could it be that President Bush would help implement Ron Paul’s foreign policy?

I guess the true question would be whether or not the other nations would make the same proposal to the United States?
