    How long will he live?

    Julian (Fries) Assange, the wiki-wacki-leaker?

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

    How long will he live?

    Julian Assange, the Australian who heads the secret-sharing Web site, told ABC News today he believes his safety and freedom are in danger.

    This thread must be an example of those superior conservative morals I keep hearing about.

    And what, exactly, is morally suspect about killing a man who is a clear and present danger to our national security?

    He's not, killing him won't change a thing, the clear and present danger to your national security are those leaking the info, he's a mere figurehead, and killing him would do more harm than good, he would be elevated to martyr status.

    Okay, so it wouldn't be very effective. I still don't see how it's morally dubious.

    Because it's pointless. Killing him, for no good reason, is murder, which is morally dubious.

    i thought murder was the unlawful killing of an individual(thank you anti-life). if the state sanctions it, it's not unlawful now is it?

    Tell me how this contravenes "superior conservative morals"?

    I think it is a fair question to ask. He hasn't only pissed off the United States, but barbaric regimes that snuff people without much problem, and those that have done far, far less.

    I wasn't thinking about our government doing it, but he should be labeled a terrorist.

    Indeed, but state sanctions assasinations (under US law) are illegal, so it's still murder.

    He's not under our jurisdiction and would never be so foolish as to place himself there without getting himself abducted. There will never be a trial. So if the State sanctions killing him, it will do so by violating both our laws and the laws of whatever country we catch him in.

    Thus murder.

    Still don't see the argument that it's morally dubious. Contrary to spud_meister's assertion, it's hardly pointless because if he comes down with so much as a hangnail others will understand that they **** with the American government at their own risk.
