    Bolivian Presidential plane re-routed by EU countries.

    BBC News - Spain 'told Edward Snowden was on Bolivia president's plane'


    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?

    I can see the American Government throwing a Massive tantrum over this if it keeps going on. I side with the Bolivians on this issue, the European countries have no right to have their aerospace policies dictated by America, just because the US Government wants a man and they thought its only thought that he was on the plane, they had no reliable evidence that he was on the plane and they interrupted the flight of a sovereign leader who has the same right to complain as the US does. They're right in saying that if it had been air force one that had landed the Us government would have thrown a tantrum of unbelievable proportions. I'm thinking that the US will end up tipping over the pram and need its nappy changed since the amount of crap that has been released will be phenomenal (bit graphic? )

    exactly and they are infringing on his basic right to seek asylum as well as breaking international law. They look like the school yard bully who got a bloody nose from the little skinny kid.

    I think a lot of times the US is caught between a rock and a hard place, constantly trying to find the right balance which when your the most powerful country in the world is hard as many other empires have discovered. However is this case they are def playing the bad guy very well and Snowden will continue to gain supporters.

    An act of war? Really, Bolivia?

    OK, let's go to war. Should take about 10 minutes.
