LasersHurt: So they continue to say "THE US DIVERTED THE PLANE" even though there is, as of yet, no evidence of that?
LasersHurt: International law exists. Multiple Nations decided they didn't want him in their airspace, and diverted him.While it's because of Snowden, that's a far cry from "The US diverted the plane."
sheumack: In the early 2000s, the USA provided the conservative Bolivian government with a lot of money on the proviso that they went into the coca field and start chopping down and burning the plants. The peasant farmers saw their livelyhood going up in smoke, and started blockading the roads connecting various cities - Cochabamba to Santa Cruz in particular. Evo Morales was one of the senior leaders, and the profile that he obtained through the protests led to his election as President, where he's stayed ever since.
rocky_howard: They don't need proof to make the accusation. It's ridiculous to even suggest otherwise. Imagine if cops couldn't arrest you unless they had proof.
SpdrJay: Glass. Parking. Lot.
studebaker hoch: France has decided to apologize rather than fight over what happened.
aardwolf: Do you Americans on FARK actually read your posts? To the whole english speaking world FARK seems entirely composed of NSA sock puppets, fascists, nationalistic racist, religious nut cases and warmongering hate filled retrogrades... as a reader for 10 years from London UK, FARK used to have an attractive freedom loving, progressive commentariat. However, the events of the last few months have shown FARK and by extension the rest of the US population as deeply ignorant of the world, the nature of freedom and having completely sleepwalked into fascism.... My country the U.K. is obviously just as bad, however, at least our Guardian newspaper reveals, that whilst our politicians are lapdog slaves to the US, at least some of our people still believe in freedom...FARK's readership appears to have deteriorated very rapidly...However, I at least hold some hope for the US as at least it was an American journalist Glenn and an American spy Edward that revealed the totalitarian world we live in...even if they needed a British newspaper to tell the world...FARK I am disappointed...
LasersHurt: What am I apologizing for? I'm asking if they have proof of the claims they're making. Bolivia might blame the US if there's a bad storm, you know?
"We have altered your flight plan. Pray we do not alter it further."(Special thanks to GIS and whatever right-wing derp-site hosts this laughly bad photoshop)
To The Escape Zeppelin!: SpdrJay: Glass. Parking. Lot.I don't like Austria either but that seems a little extreme.
