    We keep 80 percent of the planet afloat singlehandedly, and they don't appreciate it one lick. So why should we care what they think anymore?

    Never caring about intervening in the business of other countries would be a good start

    We keep 80 percent of the planet afloat with our flimsy currency, military threats, and illegal covert action singlehandedly, and they don't appreciate it one lick. So why should we care what they think anymore?

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

    Since they would need to down the escorts first in order to force it down I would suspect a small retaliation would be in order.

    Spain and other European countries were told that US whistleblower Edward Snowden was on board the Bolivian president's plane earlier this week, the Spanish foreign minister has said

    The incident has been widely condemned by President Morales and several other South American countries, who have demanded an apology from the countries involved.

    The Bolivian president blamed Washington for pressurising European countries into refusing him passage, and threatened to close the US embassy in La Paz.

    "We have dignity, sovereignty. Without America, we are better off politically and democratically," he said.



    Bolivia went as far as saying that if this had been done the AIR Force One it would of been seen as an act of war and that they will not hesitate to close the US embassy if this aggression continues. How many more toys are the US going to throw out of the pram before this is over?



    While I don't pretend to know all of the facts, I do believe that this kerfuffle didn't have to happen.




    What would the USA's response have been if this had been Air Force One in La Paz,Bolivia?
