Edward Snowden has made a public statement to the China Post.
“I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality,”
“My intention is to ask the courts and people of Hong Kong to decide my fate. I have been given no reason to doubt your system.”
It is a shame that Snowden has faith in Hong Kong. They will put up a show that they are independent. However, there is no country other than China or Russia who will not do what the USA orders them to do. He who has the nukes makes the rules. Behind closed doors in various meets with other governments, the number one complaint is that the USA has become the bully in the schoolyard. They respect no other system of law and threaten everyone. They tore Switzerland apart to the point the Swiss removed all their gold from US vaults realizing the USA would just seize all their assets if they did not comply with the USA orders.
Snowden’s only hope is Russia or China. Nobody else has the guts to stand up to the USA. This is one of the reasons why the USA remains the reserve currency and there is zero chance of hyperinflation and 110% chance of further draconian seizure of assets. This is why Americans are moving wealth to Asia – Europe bows to the USA and asks how high should it jump.
