    The US government doesn't give a damn about Snowden. The US government wants to make an example out of him just as they are doing with Manning. Whistleblowers will be hunted down like dogs and punished unmercifully. That is the message Leviathan wants to send and it doesn't care what it might damage doing it, including foreign relations or domestic laws or international laws or trade agreements.

    OK, let's go to war. Should take about 10 minutes.
    could you imagine what would happen if anyone forced Air Force One to land?

    It's really easy. The U.S. simply needs to stay out of the business of other countries. If you are the most powerful country in the world, that should eliminate the need to fuss with the internals of other governments. We aren't a good choice to take on militarily so there shouldn't be a lot of fear. It's ridiculous. Live and let live.

    I don't imagine that a U.S. president would be stupid enough to say or do anything that would make a country suspect he had a fugitive (hero, patriot, second coming of Elvis, whatever) aboard Air Force One.

    The U.S. doesn't need to posture like that.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Do they have any evidence that he may have been on board the plane? (Second coming of Elvis )

    What exactly did they say or do that would lead the US and its allies to believe he was on the plane? What's that old saying about assumptions?

    I think that is asylum from persecution, not prosecution.

    Yeah, we'd blow them into a bajillion pieces.

    But we wouldn't harbor someone like this in Air Force One. That's why Bolivia is....Bolivia.
