Watching Edward Snowden skedaddle from Hong Kong to Russia and possibly next to Ecuador or Venzuela by way of Cuba has made me realize one thing. The United States sure has a lot of enemies in the world! Wasn't Obama supposed to fix that, right after he shut down Gitmo?
On a personal note, Ecuador is one of only a couple exotic, Third World nations that I've visited -- it's a fantastic place with the majestic peaks of the Andes, the Amazon rain forests and the marvel of the Galapagos Islands. There are worse places to live out the rest of your life.
