He'll Be Crying To Come Home In Six Months

"Putin Says Snowden Can Stay in Russia ‘If He Wants To’ – But Only If He Stops Damaging US."

I've seen this sort of narcissistic behavior before, back in the mid-1980's when I was living in Spain. During that time period there was a soldier in Germany that defected to the USSR - - the dumbass couldn't cope with military life and, rather than accept the options available - - serve out his time and get an honorable discharge, or be a shitbird and exit under a general or bad conduct discharge - - he decided that a third option was available, to defect to the USSR as a victim of oppression. The Soviets obligingly accepted him, and ran tests to see what sort of work he was suited for. Since he'd had pet reptiles as a teen the Soviets sent him to a venom lab to spend his days milking deadly snakes to make antivenin. This not being what he had envisioned when he defected - - he apparently thought he'd be given a Black Sea dacha (estate) and a pension of some sort - - he soon began clamoring to return to US custody and a nice Army jail cell. He was obligingly turned over by the Soviets to the Army, where he served a term in the brig and was given a Dishonorable Discharge.

I fully expect Snowden to be treated the same way - - once the interrogators in the FSSR (KGB's current title) extract all the information they can, of course.

Yep... but I'd only give him 3 months...

@Rev. Paul: Thanks!

@Old NFO: He's probably regretting it already, since he's doubtless being interrogated by FSSR agents.
