    Of course, everyone who has spied against the United States needs to be assassinated.

    However, if you want to make an example and send a clear message, Assange needs to be first.

    Guess it is time to start assasisnating US citizens.. lets start with Bush and Cheney and work our way through the conservative supreme court and then through the bankers and backers of the Tea Party .. that would be a good start! They all are a clear and present danger to the planet after all..

    Why? Legally (from a certain pov) he has done nothing wrong. Morally he has done no more wrong than any other news media has. So if you're going to condemn him then you should by rights condemn the news media also. Should they be assassinated also?

    the problem with banning guns is that those most likely to commit crimes using guns are also those least likely to obey a ban on guns.

    He's pissed off just about everyone, is in hot oil up to his eyeballs, and he fears for his life; rightly so.

    This man has complaints, would it hurt us if we were to listen and do something?

    Then, WHY, Zimmer are the more advanced nations on this planet so against the death penalty?
    Sadly, we are not in the group, and may never be ,with the tea bagging republicans that we have in power.

    You're right by that.

    I'm fine with murder. Torture's a different story.

If they line up the kid that stole the documents and fill him full of lead, you don't think the next potential idiot will think twice? You betcha.
    Do you think this is the first time US secrets have been leaked?

    If this is not the first time, why haven't any other actions against leaks (e.g. how did Russia or anyone else develop nuclear weapons or gain any other US technology) prevented Private Manning from doing what he did?

    I think you are misjudging these individuals. Some people are more than willing to accept the risk of death for a cause they believe is just. What it would most likely achieve is emboldening those true believers. Of course, I see no problem with emboldening dissidents against the State, but still I would rather not see anyone killed.
