[quote:superflyscot:MV8yMjc2NzIyXzM4NzE2NTc3XzE3RDc5M0RG] [quote:Anonymous Coward 41052716:MV8yMjc2NzIyXzM4NzE2MjU0X0I5QTdCNjYy] There are news about this today!!! http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message2276756/pg1 The government of leftist President Rafael Correa came up with an angry response on Thursday after an influential US senator said [i][b]he would use his leverage over trade issues to cut preferential treatment of Ecuadoran goods at the US market, should Ecuador grant political asylum to Snowden.[/b][/i] [/quote] So, in other words, blackmailing Ecuador financially? Funny that. The trade agreement the USA came up with, ATPDEA, has had little impact after 10 years. From Wiki; [i]ATPDEA has had a negligible effect on the US economy and consumers as well as a small positive effect on drug-crop reduction and export-related job creation in the Andean region.[/i] In other words, we probably wouldn't miss your help, USA! And possibly also, so long for your insidious means to promote the importing of coke. https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/fields/2086.html USA...[i]world's largest consumer of cocaine (shipped from Colombia through Mexico and the Caribbean), Colombian heroin, and Mexican heroin and marijuana; major consumer of ecstasy and Mexican methamphetamine; minor consumer of high-quality Southeast Asian heroin; illicit producer of cannabis, marijuana, depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, and methamphetamine; money-laundering center[/i] The USA needs to stop being so righteous, and close its gates, and focus upon its own citizens needs... Can I get an amen? :moshpit: [/quote]
Defiant authorities in Ecuador say they won't bow to U.S. pressure as they weigh former NSA contractor Edward Snowden's request for asylum.
Ecuador's president and other top officials said Thursday that they're turning down the trade benefits the United States gives them as part of the Andean Trade Promotion and Drug Eradication Act.
"It is outrageous to try to delegitimize a state for receiving a petition of asylum," Correa said.
