“There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.”
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
In case you haven't heard, the website wikileaks recently published over 90,000 classified and secret US government documents relating to the war in Afghanistan. Julian Assange (the founder of wikileaks) claims to have published the documents to "shine light on the everyday brutality and squalor of war."
Is this guy narcissistic or what? I find it hard to believe that anyone in this day and age doesn't understand the "brutality of war." In the interview I linked above the aforementioned ignoramus also said: "I enjoy helping people who are vulnerable. And I enjoy crushing bastards."
Really Julian? Since CBS is reporting that this leak has endangered the lives of hundreds of Afghan civilians and the Taliban has announced it is reviewing the documents and "hunting down informants" all you've really done is bring more suffering to people of Afghanistan. Nicely done jackass.
But wait there's more! WE ARE STILL AT WAR PEOPLES!
Julian Assange may not be an American citizen, but he's thrown in with our enemies by knowingly publishing these documents. At the very least he should be arrested by the FBI and tried for aiding the enemy.
US Code § 904. Art. 104. Aiding the enemy
Any person who—
(1) aids, or attempts to aid, the enemy with arms, ammunition, supplies, money, or other things; or
(2) without proper authority, knowingly harbors or protects or gives intelligence to, or communicates or corresponds with or holds any intercourse with the enemy, either directly or indirectly;
shall suffer death or such other punishment as a court-martial or military commission may direct. This section does not apply to a military commission established under chapter 47A of this title.
Will this assclown actually get his due? It's doubtful. We are a nation at war yet we still do not act like it. That's the truly pathetic part...
