Yes the U.S. behemoth exerts economic pressure on the likes of Correa in Ecuador threatening to suspend trade. However the masses in most Latin American countries want their governments to defy the U.S. again shown clearly in their overwhelming support of Snowden.

The days of the U.S. "Talk softly but carrying a big stick", with all of Latin America being easy prey for U.S. invasions, assassinations and coups, are over.

Openly defiant leaders in Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador are harbingers for what is happening politically in Latin America. Add in Brazil that took umbrage over the NSA revelations and condemnation of U.S. imperialistic practices is spreading where once it was only Cuba's Castro and Venezuela's Chavez that were the only ones openly defying the U.S.

Yet the populations of people throughout the world, not just in Latin America, are "onto" U.S. imperialist and hegemonic practices and starting to elect governments that side with the people's attitudes that want resistance to U.S. domination.

Only in Europe have the people been way ahead of their "poodle" leaders who cow- tow to Washington.

But the revelations of NSA worldwide snooping and surveillance of their European "allies" and its people isn't sitting well with legislators and high government officials in a furor, particularly in Germany over the NSA's "Stasi" like operations.

The NSA criminal genie is out of the bottle and the black eye that the U.S. has received from the Snowden revelations is well deserved.

The real fear is the U.S. government will have no remorse and the NSA won't miss a beat in continuing its clandestine snooping operations as if the Snowden revelations never occurred.
