Hyperpower ≠ Smart

It's shocking how little of this story appears in American or Canadian 'journalism'.

I am glad to see the US making everyone pissed off at them together. I'd say the US should let Snowden go, as what they're doing makes them look even worse than they do. The only reason to take this course is if they think there's something worse they can stop getting disclosed; or stupidity.

South American nations furious over diversion of Bolivian president's plane

In Snowden's shoes, now that we've a taste of what the US will do, I'd publish all the files.  The US is responsible for the crimes he's gotten evidence of, and would be responsible for any collateral damage of dumping all of the files on the Internet and with multiple news sources.

Fuck America. A view getting more universal on this planet.


  1. Publish and be damned. For Snowden, there can be little hope of a happy ending. Best he could hope for is winning the moral argument, which the US government’s actions seem intent on proving. Happy Independence Day.

  2. I saw this on the morning news today while at the gym. I just had to shake my head... what the hell is going on? We (the US) are (have been) acting like a bunch of assholes. It's ridiculous and will only get more preposterous. How many planes have to be stopped in search of 1 man? And how long is this non-sense expected to continue and be tolerated?

    If I were one of the countries that Snowden has applied at for asylum I would take him.
