Snowden should sneak out of Russia, find his way across the Ural mountains, in to Mongolia and head south in to southeast asia like Thailand or Vietnam, find some sleepy village where nobody cares about world politics and settle down in a little house in the hills, it would be suicide or at least a long prison term in Leavenworth by coming back to the USA
