  •  i'm thinking venezuela... (1+ / 0-)

    is probably the best bet at the moment, it is more economically independent than many of its neighbors because of its oil reserves.  the us currently purchases some part of venezuela's production, but us demand could easily be replaced by some other country's (china?) demand.

    i suspect that regardless of whether they have the nerve to offer snowden asylum, the way that obama has bullied them is going to have long-term effects on relations with our southern neighbors.

    i would imagine that the european countries don't like being leaned on either, but i suspect that the governments of those countries are in it up to their eyeballs due to their cooperation with the us.  they probably haven't mentioned a lot of these activities (which are illegal in their countries) to their citizens and the leaders of those countries are likely feeling a little trapped and desperate about now.

    i'm part of the 99% - america's largest minority
