Russia vill rule de vorld.

We do not want to see Snowden handed over - it seems too puerile. Too simple a solution - all too obvious.

Bu t quite practically, this is precisely what Russia will be doing very soon. Mark this space, Mr Snowden is going home, earlier than later, and the evening parties will begin again at the White House.

Well done, Mr President.
Compromise truly is the only game in town.
Soon the whistle blower will need some great lawyers.

Martin, I don't see a mass murder of reporters, but do see solitary confindment for life as but a heartbeat away. For Obama has to keep our Empire locked in absolute darkness or else.

Give the man a hundred Passports and make him a citizen of a hundred nations, that should stupefy those pesky Empire builders.

To be fair, Putin, Snowden is not harming America. America is harming itself with its actions.

Speaking as a 100% disabled veteran of USA, also as a past intelligence analyst, my govt. has left me no option but to fully support Snowdon and all other whistleblowers.
It disgusts me to watch the USA become a fascist empire, based on selfish greed.
I am the 99%.
My only fear is the CIA will kill all whistleblowers soon.

Good for Snowdon that he is getting support for he has showed immense courage and fortitude.

Not military, money and corporations control it

The US military establishment has been running he US & the world for years. Is that not a coup?


Frank Naidoo 13.07.2013 08:41

Maybe if US citizens went out in the street in their millions to express their dissatisfaction at Obama selling out on his promises then a coup will be justified.

You captions cover your photos, what art major made that FAIL?

The USA needs a military coup to rid itself of zionism and bring in democracy. Expel the zionists.

Does Snowden plan on spilling something original or just more incessant banality?
