Now the Whitehouse knows how we fell about them.

Wow. I did not realise that so many people had started waking up in the US. I though you were all completely passified and brainwashed by your government and media.

This gives reason for optimism. Some people talk about the American Spring!

You r government is not democratic, it has rotted from the inside. They lie, they manipulate and they pretend it is all democracy. They falsify, they steal, they kill and pretend it is for freedom, but it is not. They imprison you in your own country, dominate you, trap you and surveilance you, to protect you from terrorism, but it does not!

Free people of America, rise up!

The world will be so much better off if our US Muslim Drone Droping Dictator does not have a seat at that table..

PAM...I so agree /w U on thoughts expressed. US badly needed this as a reminder ... They're NOT the almighty power of this globe.

What is so harm if USA and RUSSIA cannot go along. USA can go it's way and Russia can go it's way seperately.

Senetor McCain is making strong public wooing coments in Snowden case. I think he is eying to take another shot at Presidentship. In the last bid he lost because public came to know that he abandonned his wife when she lost her beauty in car crash. I hope no other negative information come out from his closet.

I think Americans believe that by voting in 2014 and 2016, we can elect people who will give America back to the people. It is engrained in Americans to believe that our right to vote is what will win the day for all of us. But...I think this President, government, and NSA have gone far beyond what voting can correct. Voting can't get our freedoms back now that they're most certainly gone. The fox is in the hen use voting on what brand of lock we want on the door now.

No they standing up to a bullying country "Good one Russia" .It seems Russia are more open and USA are restricting the peoples rights that's how Stalin took over...ha ha whos communist now

Reverse Russia and USA in McCain's comments and then imagine Kruschev saying it. This government is now employing KGB tactics that it once railed against.

Oh Dear, didnt the White House get the servile trembling response they hoped for by threatening financial and business sanctions against Russia, Russia has news for the over inflated self opinionated white house puppets, Russia can do and IS doing very well without Amerika, that must really upset the Zionist top lot tremendously, Such inflated egoes, from silly little poeple safely threatening from behind thier guilded cages.

"White House 'extremely disappointed' with Snowden asylum".

I think this statements would be said with a lot more vigour, passion and possibly re-phrased in the White House.

"The White House is disappointed" .... more and more the gap between the wishes and aspirations of everyday citizens of America and their political leaders is widening , to the point that there is very little democracy left ... much like Russia , Iran , Syria , etc. etc. .

What a show. Russia does not have to do anything but let events take their course. Meanwhile Obama is playing Wile E. Coyote to Snowden's Roadrunner. And as happened in the cartoon, Coyote's dastardly plans to catch the Roadrunner have boomeranged. Now Obama is stuck - if he goes to Russia as originally planned then the warmonger dinosaurs in Congress will say he caved in to Putin. If he stays home, the world will view that move as a childish temper tantrum. The White House just got flattened by a PR boulder. We should give Obama a sign that reads "Oh No Not Again."
