If there was ever any doubt of the U.S. being the bully of the world there should not be any doubt anymore.

We can torture captive's for info and its fine, how dare you talk down to us but when someone leaves the country with info that implies the corruption of the U.S. government we punish the whole damn country and multiple country's if need be.

Considering a Senate controlled by one of the most corrupt Senators there is and full of RINO Republican's this does not surprise me but it sure embarrasses me.

So far I've been a bit impressed at our House of Representatives at least taking votes to attempt to remedy or eliminate the intrusions we now know of by the NSA. The representatives seem to understand and at least ACT on the perceived will of the people

The Imperial Senate, on the other hand, isn't bearing too much difference from its' precursor in Ancient Rome.
To hell with the Citizens' preferences, we're the Senate and by the time 2/3 of us are up for re-election, Snowden will just be a faded memory.

I await what transpires in the judicial branch regarding the Snowden situation, with the exception of the secret FISA court, for which I have absolutely NO respect, primarily mirroring that court's attitude towards American citizens.

POTUS and Biden are as always less than above board in their dealings on this matter (IMHO).

I wonder if the Senate Appropriations Committee looks as similar in their receiving of campaign contributions from defense contractors as their counterparts sitting in the House Appropriations Committee of whom nearly all of them voted against the Amash Amendment.

Democracy in America is DEAD! Ok it might not be North Korea but like here in the UK you have to be careful of the PC Police. I think America now is much like what Germany was in the late 1920s with the onset of the Nazi's rise to power. The USA is very much in danger of sliding toward a de facto Faschist state. The slow erosion of rights is a good indication of that. Short of the Enabling Act this will continue.

I think Snowden does have something the USA is trying to supress. My romantic and wishful thinking heart would place money on a Cosmic Watergate ie the proof of ET existence. However I think it is more likely he has information about the corruption at the heart of Government and in particular the role of the shadow government and various black ops stuff as well.

OH heaven forbid we do something like that?

If you think china, russia and the us are enemies ...,you are wrong.

Russia want's Snowden. They are just using their acting skills... Which are not that good. They want him so they can get access to his info.

Russia will give Snowden a ultimatum, "give us the documents or we'll deny you asylum". Pretty simple. Snowden, under pressure will prolly crack....


So, what is this snowden guy gonna tell them ... Everybody knows about us spying in europe and china. Its never been a secret. Truth of the matter is, wikileaks, bin laden, snowden ... All of them look like us assets to me. What better way to get information about your enemies, than to have your own traitor seek assylum,and see whomtakes the bait.

If you think china is gonna come or,russia and save rhe poor syrians ... Then all i can say is pfffft, sorry that fart left a skidmark.

With an economy in tatters like the usa one, i would stop harassing the world for my mistakes. I don't know if usa realize but they need the other countries more than those need usa. Suck it up, accept you fu$$ed up, say sorry, leave snowden alone and go on with the tyranny. Usa u are not the be all and end all of this world.

US has every right to put sanctions on countries giving asylum to Snowden. Will that be a wise move for US? not likely!

Another act of violating Snowden's rights. Taking away his ability to seek asylum. Shameful.

On the up side... all those people who think the US needs to be more isolated (although I don't exactly agree) ... they will finally get what they want after the US gets done sanctioning the entire world, blocking itself off completely.

Sanction, sanction, sanction.

Sanction yourself US. You'd save a lot of time and effort.

Well let see how can US have on Russia that can damage their country, hum, well the last thing I check the stores everything comes from China, so what else could be out there to hit Russia with.

Let see,

Russia's Economy Is Important to the U.S.:

Russia is a $4 billion export market for the U.S. in areas such as agriculture, aircraft, and information technology.

Russian Is the Energy Supplier to Europe:

Russia supplies 30% of Europe’s oil and 50% of its natural gas. Gazprom, is Russia’s state-owned gas company and Rosneft is its state-owned oil company.

So can the US cut all ties with Russia and force other nations to do the same?

I don't think so.

let see again,

3 ways the US can start an economic 'reset' with Russia

Well it seems that Under Obama he has actually worked hard to cement the relationships with Russian than trample them in any way.

Why? because like China Russia is a big country, but they have oil and natural gas, the have partnerships with other European nations and Russia like China Do not belong to the WTO and that exempt them from many things that US may want to impose on them.
actually Russia like China are very much independent when it comes to political manipulation from the US, in other worlds they do as they seem fit for their nation.

It seems that while we have a nation been run by morons in congress that power and private interest money has corrupted Russia and China still keep it grounded, yes they have corruption but still they look for their countries best interest

These guys aren't the sharpest knives in the butcher block, are they? We need better people in Congress. It's almost embarrassing.

That about sums it up.
