SpdrJay: Glass. Parking. Lot.

I don't like Austria either but that seems a little extreme.

studebaker hoch: France has decided to apologize rather than fight over what happened.

Looks like we can add most of Latin America to Russia and China in terms of the nations we've pissed off over Snowden. Who's next, I wonder?

I'm thinking one of those one-way trips to Mars is about all he has left.

Besides, the whole "glass" bit is predicated on the prevalence of sand.

Yup. Not much sand in the Outback.

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.

If only there were a way to turn coca leaves into pharmaceuticals that could be beneficial and that trade restrictions on the plant be lifted to allow those farmers to export their product to legitimate markets.

....but that's just crazy talk

rocky_howard: LasersHurt: So they continue to say "THE US DIVERTED THE PLANE" even though there is, as of yet, no evidence of that?

Don't be glib... Are you 4 years old? The plane was stopped because of Snowden. Who's the one interested in Snowden? United States.

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."

Why don't we turn YOUR house into a glass parking lot? It'd be an improvement over the cesspool that it's currently there.
