Given that Snowden revealed that the US has been spying extensively on some of our closest allies like Germany, you'd think there'd be plenty of offers for asylum.

Not really. Those closest allies spy on us too, and they're all squirming and trying to stay ducked down behind cover, before someone reveals that, hey, they do it too. None of them want to stand up and offer Snowden sanctuary for fear of getting in the spotlight. (Plus, of course, the US will just play hardball and threaten sanctions.)

I understand why people are angry at the NSA bullshit, but I seriously don't get why people are so shocked over the idea that the US spies on other countries. Every country in the world spies on other countries. They have been doing this since the dawn of time. They all KNOW that they're spying on one another.
