The U.S. "helps" the Falun Gong - the same group that claims they can walk through walls and communicate with aliens. Not to mention, it's revered leader believes mixed children have no soul and will go to hell.

He's not a "whistleblower". He's a loser and thief, who only worked for three months and was about to be fired for laziness.

What if Edward Snowden is a Chinese man and worked for China’s Public Security and did the whistle-blowing of whatever China has been doing?
Two things can be certain: 1, He would become a HERO, a paradigm of humanity and freedom; 2, He would be nominated for next Nobel Prize for his contribution to world peace!

" The greatest danger we have now is militarism in America. We have this huge, overpowering, unbelievably expensive military establishment... Seasoned U.S. Ieaders have warned against the threat of a huge military establishment to the liberty of our citizens. I fear that from this we are going to get even more militarism. That is, more and more functions-including domestic police functions-will be transferred from civilian institutions to the military, and the military will have ever greater authority in our society."

At what cost?

Stupid Chinkmen in PRC and Hong Kong will find themselves in big trouble when USA attacks them.

Then we will take Scarborough Shoal back.

Congressman McCain already wants the govt to bomb Hong Kong if Edward Snowden is not deported back to USA.
