Well of course the US wants Snowden returned. I mean, let's look at the facts.
1. The US is 78% pro-life Christian. (US religious demographics ) Which means that 78% of all the killing and all the murders and all the 6.6 women who are beaten or raped or murdered in the US every single year, are beaten, raped or murdered by pro-life Christians. (US domestic violence statistics ). It's just numbers people. And while the base line philosophy of the Christian conservatives is to "lie" as much as possible to everyone about anything and everything. Numbers don't lie. People do.
2. So, given the fact that 78% of the United States is pro-life Christian. And given the fact that Snowden did a very bad thing. He obeyed completely the legal language and fulfilled the legal requirements under the "federal law" regarding "whistleblowers". And given that he did that. It makes perfect sense that the right wing white Christian conservatives, who hate the Constitution, and are demanding that the US stop being a "free" nation, and become a "Christian" nation, so that the pro-life Christians can then go through the country fulfilling their mandate that they believe Jesus told them, which is to "kill and murder every single child, and kill every woman and kill every single American who is not white and Christian. Because the Christian conservatives don't want America to be a "fee" nation, with liberty and justice for all. They want the America to be a "Christian" nation. Where all non-Christians will be shot on sight. Their families murdered and women will be treated like the family dog.
3. So given all of the above. It makes perfect sense that spending all the money that the entire country has, not on helping the poor. Not on saving the lives of children who are going hungry. Not on women who are being mass murdered by the republicans and their open hatred for women. But on chasing one single man. Who by virtue of the Whistleblower law, did not break a single crime. Yes, America. That's exactly the direction and the mentality of the "I'm dumber than a tree stump" assholes of the Christian conservatives who keep yelling and screaming that America is a "Christian" nation. Even though there is not one single document in the history of the world, regarding the founding of the United States of America, that shows that the United States was to be set up "not" as a "Free" nation. But as a theocracy, where anyone who does not bow down the white masters of the Christian conservative movement will either be immediate killed or perhaps just burned alive and fed to dogs.
Yeah... it makes sense... but in what the hell kind of reality are we talking about here?
