Blatant political trolling by Americans.

    Not talking about what happens in the War Room, but the latest story to pop up in my news feed.
    Must admit it made me chuckle though...
    Apparently it's even something of a cold war tradition.
    Do you think this sort of statement is worth making?

    This warrants a single yellow, imo.

    Well there's no stopping China from naming a street after Edward Snowden or Bradley Manning.

    Until China gets their Human Rights shit together, I will consider their laws ridiculous... therefore anyone that breaks those laws and comes out against them is deserving of such an honor. This is not trolling...

    This. Liu Xiaobo is a great human rights activist, and is being held in prison for it.

    I love it. The only way China can top this is if they name one of their streets "Edward Snowden".

    This is like WWE provoke and conquer. :icon_chee Americans take free will past our borders and China is the more strict. It's like a love, hate relationship.

    Are you seriously comparing the current USA and China's human rights issues? Thats pretty stupid.

    I see it as a Win Win if China renames the street the US Embassy is on as Snowdon St/ln/dr . Cause you got an American street named after a Chinese activist who took on an authoritarian behemoth and you got a patriot for the common man (Snowdon) exposing the US government's anti freedom practices.

    Hmm. Doesn't seemed aimed at the the US from that report.
    More of an internal dispute.

    Yeah, I was about to say...this is child's play compared to the fact that China protected a known official traitor (I think Snowden's a hero of conscience, but that's his official status).
