How predictable can you get? So much for outrage and indignation, eh, Evo? I’d say it was all a pretty slick setup in the first place. Morales is in Moscow, Snowden is in Moscow, get the picture? Well, I hope Snowden enjoys his time in Ecuador, Venezuela or Bolivia, because, to quote Gollum, “you can never go home”.

I love it… He’s so hurt and upset that we would accuse him of helping the guy, then he offers to help him. LOL

Snowden is just a tool at this point. None of these people really want to help him or have any real intention of doing so. They’re just using him to try and get under our skin. Bottom line, the guy isn’t worth the trouble. Not even Saddam would have been crazy enough to take him.

One has to wonder about the leaders of these small countries. Wouldn’t they think that if they give asylum to someone the US doesn’t like that the US might reciprocate by banning travel and trade to and from their country, shutting down their embassy and consulates, impounding bank balances, stopping bank transfers, increasing tariffs, etc.?

Or are they just trying to get their names in the paper as being “progressive?”

I consider Snowden no less of a patriot than those who founded our Republic.

And by the way, the principles upon which our Republic was founded have no relationship to what our country is today.

A Republic it is not. An Oligarchy? I suspect that’s the closest description.
