    I think even you could win a NPP these days.

    So how did that cause peace?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Wikileaks released the emails from the fraudulent scientists working at East Anglia University and Penn State University that destroyed the Global Warming movement. This was instrumental in discrediting global warming policies.

    For this yeoman's work Julian Assange and Wikileaks are heros who deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. Good on you Julian.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Perhaps you guys are too brainwashed with Fox News nonsense to realize this, but promoting transparancy is actually a peaceful thing to do. It's funny, you guys are the same people who go with the whole "if you have nothing to hide then the Patriot Act won't affect you" attitude, yet you are offended by government document leaks?

    I am not a fan of Julian Assange, but Wikileaks serves a noble purpose, especially since journalism in this country has become so spineless.

    I take it you missed the 60 minutes piece. It was very informative, makes you think twice about what they do.

    State secrets are only 'secret' because the people running the state want it that way, it's more about power and control than it is about public safety.

    Had there been a wikileaks back in 2002-2003, would we have gone to war in Iraq?
