Three countries are accepting him, it is all up to him now to choose one. Hopefully Russia together with the international community will get him to the destination.
You were probably eating shit when the news broke.
Yes, no country on earth will give him travel documents but three make phony offers that cannot be accepted without the travel documents they refuse to provide, and so he is STILL sleeping in an airport toilet and STILL eating out of garbage cans for WEEKS now.......

I see that you must probably eat out of the trash as well, and so identify with your fellow loser.

Yum! Eat up boys!

ridiculous, no matter how he likes dim-sum, he can not get away that airport in russia. he can only enjoy sweet dim sum in that small free zone by himself.
it is impossible for him to stay in S.Korea, and S.Korea can not allow his entry either.

only N.Korea could take him in, but he must not like such country.

he can not return HK either. poor man. he pay much cost for his ridiculous decision.

But that belongs on one of the many threads here about the disgusting quality of food in the CCP China slave-state. Get with it!

spamming the same things over and over doesnt make them any more fact. 3 countries have granted him asylum thus far. They have not gave travel docs because he has not said which country he is going to accept. It was just yesterday that the russian media said he accepted Ven. offer but then turned around and pulled the story. Seems to me that you dont have a clue what you are talking about.

My thoughts are confirmed when you still think hes living in a bathroom and eating out of garbage cans.

Yes, if we just ignore the facts that he is still in limbo living in an airport and has no place to go, we can posit that his confusion and indecision is what is in fact making this thief and traitor the laughingstock of the world, and not the fact that nobody wants him.......

But of course, that is for deluded idiots only......

facts? show me 1 fact you have posted? No one wants him? Then why is he getting granted asylum by 4 countries now? so again, you are the one ignoring facts and making things up as you go. Your hardly an intelligent person as is obvious by your posts. Laughing stock of the world? Seems more people are laughing at the US' ineptitude than anything snowden has done.

Why is he STILL sleeping in an airport toilet and STILL eating out of garbage cans?

Because "he is getting granted asylum by 4 countries now"?

Seems pretty stupid.

If he had a single real offer, he would have gone there by now.

Obviously HE has nothing to offer anyone but what he has stolen from his former employers.

Face facts; he is no "hero", he is a LOSER.

He has no way to go to another country at present as a "free man".
China expaled him in a deft political footwork.
He can not stay in Russia, unless he has to keep all to himself to avoid hurting usa, Putin said.

no support from Russia, China and europe, which country dare to adopt him?
no good to the coutry he will stay in.

N.Korea may be able to accept him, but he can neither go to, nor he will like to go to. for he knows some day he will be in that country's special house.

he is staying at a hotel at the airport retard; if he is even still there. If that part is too hard to understand, then the rest of it is going to be way over your head. You obviously do not understand that these asylum request can take a very long time; especially if you are being actively hunted by the most powerful country in the world.

That It is a democratic country or not depends on it's own citizens instead of people who never go and live there. Any forejudge without personal experience will never holds water!! I am in China and I think it's much more safe and at ease than most of countries in the world.

Yes, that is why he is STILL sleeping in an airport toilet and STILL eating out of garbage cans! No place on earth is dumb and isolated enough to want him except maybe North Korea where nobody wants to go; airport toilets look good in comparison!

But I doubt the OBVIOUS WEAKNESS of the Chinese Communist Party regime after DECADES of anti-American rhetoric is "deft political footwork", rather it is weakness and confusion that illustrates the false nature of what is constantly told to the Chinese people!
