In many countries around the world, that would probably be easily doable. But it probably has a higher level of difficulty in China and Russia. For the short term, Snowden is probably very safe in China. They're probably going to take... steps... to ensure this PR gold mine remains at their doorstep for now while they figure out how best to use him.
Think about it, the USA loves castigating China about their human rights record. Snowden "disappearing" would mean the shoe would be on the other foot when the HoS of the two countries meet.
He (Snowden) worked in Intelligence, and probably knows a good deal more about the diplomatic relationship between China and the USA than most of use commenting here. There's always a chance he might be wrong, but there's no chance he didn't choose Hong Kong for perfectly rational and logical (albeit to him) reasons.
This doesn't mean that the user hates womankind, just that they are expressing disdain for a certain woman.
Listen up Captain Clueless, when someone uses a word for a woman's genitalia to insult a certain woman, they're definitely not doing it because they think woman as a group are wonderful people. It's like when straight people say "I don't care if you're gay, just don't be a faggot!", or when white people say "I don't care that you're black, just don't be a nigger.". Whatever their justifications, it's obvious that this person is not your friend, they imagine themselves above you, able to judge you as a representative of your group, and will move against you or hurt you if they think they can get away with it. A woman/gay person/black person that agrees with this line of thought ("don't be a "), has internalized a lot of self-hatred.
Do you get all huffy when somebody calls a guy a dick?
Yes I do. Like I said, using gendered insults says a lot more about the person using them than the person being insulted.
You haters ought to get together and discuss what FUD you're going to spread. I pays to be consistent.
Stop playing semantic games and just admit that there are no real alternative browsers, only wrappers around Apple's version of webkit, or some Frankensteinian monstrosity that offloads processing to the server.. Anyway, I joined this conversation to make a point and now must leave it point made, whether or not the recipient of my words understood them.
