    Screw that. As long as these wikileaks scum do not know what its like and are not concerned with anyone leaking stuff on them then they will have no reason to stop.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    There is a huge difference between leaking information to expose abuses by the state or business and another entirely to leak information simply to demonize and smear the person exposing said abuses. Different motivations imply. The former is usually motivated by a desire to do good, while the latter is all about ill intentions.
    And Assange's intentions are much more in line with the latter than they are the former.

However, I can't deny that I really like seeing that his info was leaked regarding his promiscuity. I big dose of hypocrisy on Assange's part tastes very refreshing.
    You can certainly be against it in both cases yet still enjoy the gander getting the sauce poured on the goose.

    Damn Harshaw, you and I can argue over what color the sky is and whether the sun rises in the east or west. How did we end up saying the same thing, albeit with you saying it better?

    how's that? Look, I've been around long enough to see it first hand.....Snarky comments, and outright smears are just fine in most liberals minds as long as they are the ones delivering the shots. And just like Assange the asshat cryin' over how his personal info is released, I for one find it not only amusing, but a taste of his own medicine.....How's that?

    Just because you may not like what he did does not mean he did not do it for the right reasons.

    Really? If a company were dumping chemical waste upstream from a town it would be no one's business? I am sure you will say that is different, but if it is really so horrible to leak information from them then such an incident would only be exposed after it has done sufficient damage to be noticed. Were a car company cutting corners to preserve profits by using inferior equipment that is certainly something one would want to know about before there is an incident and that would likely require someone leaking said information.

    And Assange's intentions are much more in line with the latter than they are the former.
    How so?

    Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.

    There's no indication whatsoever that said information will be incriminating in any respect. Pretty much none of these diplomatic cables were.

    You assume wrongdoing with no reason, at all.

    And by THIS standard, he's really got NO cause to complain here, because it's specifically about criminal wrongdoing. So, as you say, why shouldn't we know about it?


    How so?

    Honest answer: it really depends on what I disagree with them over. If it's someone who's constant gripe is that the US is just evil and exploits 3rd world nations, blah, blah, blah, then yes, I do question their affinity for this country.
