The US is no longer a superpower, in part thanks to Edward Snowden.
There is one aspect of the Edward Snowden saga – above and beyond any “revelations” of PRISM, etc. – that has signaled the world has moved beyond the post-World War II Breton Woods order: the utter disrespect shown the US by the international community. Ecuador’s government, with President Rafael Correa as its’ head, has continued in the steps of Hong Kong and Russia by telling Washington it could not have what it wanted. The South American country renounced US trade benefits, but offered to pay for human rights training in America in response to pressure over intelligence contract Edward Snowden.
“Ecuador will not accept pressures or threats from anyone, and it does not traffic in its values or allow them to be subjugated to mercantile interests,” government spokesman Fernando Alvarado said at a news conference.
