The World Bank needs to be spied upon! It is responsible for stealing from underdeveloped countries by charging them interest payments they cannot pay. These poor countries are left with the choice of being bombed if they don't pay, or they have to give up their resources to the USA.

Look at that picture. Hiding behind your idols of silver and gold with no fear of your God in your hearts. You have turned from your creator and worship your selves. Penance penance penance

Unfortunately that just means the UK'll be doin' for 'em.

But they're all at it.

Any day now Merkel'll be exclaiming "Mein Gott I was not having realised the Barack Obama we spy on was THAT Barack Obama!"

Even if Snowden's genuine there'll still be those using him as an excuse to plow even greater amounts o' dough into even more arcane research and even more surveillance.

Put it this way it wouldn't surprise me in the least if Snowden gets offered a Russian based directorship of this new news corp Greenwald Poitras an' Scahill're settin' up especially if he decides their main collateral's his rep and his info.

Oh well if Obama says they are going to stop spying then they are. Surely the intelligence services and the government wouldn't lie to us?

Another articulation of the problem of which they are nearly endless. For solutions learn about the United Front Against Austerity, UFAA!!!

Take a good look at the people in the photograph. You will not see a more useless, arrogant band of inbred idiots and elitists anywhere.

It is time to move the UN, IMF and the world bank out of america.

Telling them is one thing. Them actually doing it is another matter entirely. Should of also stated that it would be permanent.
