The CCP is DYING wrote:
<quoted text>
It seems far more plausible that he is a Wu Mao Dang fake.
After all, he was not educated in CCP China where most people (over 80%)drop out before finishing high school. He is American (where over 85% of people DO complete high school)and a University graduate.
So, as an uneducated CCP swindler, the fake Edward uses crude "Chinglish", stupidly exposing his deceit.
Get it?
Just converse of your statement. Most of chinese students finish their high school lessions and enroll into colleges. From the data have just been announced by local authority that there are more than 92percent students this year who will entry into colleges to continue their education.

and back to usa, most of high school students are fear of math, physics and so on. they have not finished these subjects learn.
that's why usa admire chinese, russia and japaness' education.
The CCP is DOOMED

That is absurd. I lived in China and I am well aware that MILLIONS get no education at all, and only a tiny fraction of mainland Chinese ever finish high school.

Your lying about it only humiliates China, as there are people with eyes and ears who have been to China and are unafraid of CCP political terror, and so can and will speak their minds.

You just make your self look as stupid as a CCP member when you do that.

China has ALMOST A MILLION ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DROPOUTS EVERY YEAR, dummy!

Here:
"In 1997, China had 630,000 primary schools; in 2011 it had 254,000, with average class sizes soaring, says education expert Yang. Primary schools are now more than five kilometers away from home on average, says Yang, so children face long commutes on dangerous country roads.

Rural families pay up to 2,000 yuan annually in education costs, due in part to higher transportation expenses or dormitory fees for students who opt to board. To secure desks near the teacher, families pay 300 yuan per month, says Liao Ran, who runs programs in Asia combating graft for Berlin-based Transparency International. While a few years ago the youngest students almost all went to school, now as many as 900,000 6- to 8-year-olds drop out every year, says Yang."

They may know where he is but what are they going to do, send a rendition team into russia to get him? If so, i take it you are fine with Russia sending rendition teams to the USA to "pickup" their enemies as well? Yes? Now sub any other country with Russia and do you still agree?

The US has been setting new precidents in the world; Drone Assassinations, state sponsored cyber attacks against critical systems, kidnapping their enemies from other countries. It's all fun and games until other countries join in on the fun. USA leading the way...

I am not a Snowden loyalist, but obviously someone had to point out what our government was doing in violation of the Constitution they all swear to uphold. They will catch up with him, but most world leaders have nothing but contempt for our leadership so they will make it as embarrassing as possible. In the meantime we can drag these scandals out until next year when all these cretins have to come up for re election. They will be changing their tune by Christmas.

So true!

Apparently, to Snowden's thinking (or lack thereof) governments snooping on communications is AN OUTRAGE unless it is done by a dictatorship that does exactly the same as well as engaging in censorship, mass-murder for political terror, torture, organ harvesting, massive theft, a history of murdering tens of millions of its own people, and of course secret concentration camps for its own people before they are murdered. Then snooping is JUST FINE according to Snowden, it seems.

Obviously he has been bought by CCP China, and timed his thefts and betrayal to coincide with Xi's visit.

Either that, or he is the biggest most naive idiot on the planet!

Did it ever cross your feeble mind that Israel and Co are the communists spying on us? Israel is in the organ trade and prostitution rings as well. They are disgusting and they are destroying this nation with depravity and a private central bank drowning us with usury, taxes, and shackles. Grow a pair.

Last week the U S said Snowden was in Russia, but then went to Cuba, and on to Ecuador. The truth is we have no idea where little Eddie is, or what is on his 4 laptops. So to get our incompetent President off the front page today President DumDum announced he would go around congress, and legislate his own global warming laws. Won't work. We will still pursue the scandals, and Snowden, and all the other messes Obama has gotten us into, This is really getting fun now!!

If it is true Snowden did help out the Russians with intelligence I have no compassion for him after that point. In my opinion he deserves a traitor's fate from the U.S. government.

Why should he be a martyr if his own government is hellbent on prosecuting him for exposing the government's massive violation of our constitutional rights? He's got to trade something for protection especially when most countries of the world would not be able to withstand U.S. bullying. If he wanted to be a traitor and capitalize on the information that he has, he would have done it quietly without ever exposing himself. That information would have been infinitely more valuable to Russia if the U.S. didn't even know it was missing. Now that it's in the open, the great powers can at least have an honest discussion about what limits if any they are willing to set on hacking and spying and wether those limits can be enforced. The damage that unlimited cyber warfare can cause is conceivably just as damaging, at least economically, as a conventional war. The story of Snowden is not yet over and if our governments can come together and set some rational limits to the use of their cyber weapons, he'd have my vote for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Excellent, give snowden the Nobel peace prize for preventing world cyber war. It will bring some meaning back to the prize again. Last time they gave it to Obama and EU for essentially doing nothing, this time they should give to Ed at least for putting his life on the line to expose the world largest state sponsored cyber attack
