^ They are glorified mercenaries, I was just trying to use neutral wording :razz:

 

Ah.

 

Why would you feel the need to do that?

 

I've learned that no matter how despicable the person/company/whatever, there's always someone willing to stick up for them -.-

Although I think it is great that stuff like ^^^^^ get's uncovered I do wish that some things weren't put up that compromised military personnel. Other than that, I'm fine; this will make a nice section in a history book in the future.

In reference to the cables, nearly every one of the cables released so far were first released to mainstream news organisations. Wikileaks then published the ones that those news outlets requested. On top of that the cables were redacted as journalists deemed appropriate. The US was also given an opportunity to help prevent compromising those people too, but they declined.

Yes, because every single Christian condones the use of young boys as sexual playthings for mercenaries. Just like every single muslim is a terrorist.

 

God, if only the atheists and religion bashers could see their own bigotry.

Word.

 

Also, Sceptical, in some cultures it's considered polite or even intelligent to be careful how you word things. You know, because being unnecessarily offensive is unnecessarily offensive.

I think you're drawing unnecessary conclusions there. No one even remotely said anything like that, unless I missed it somehow.

It's Skeptical.

 

Did I say that he should be careless in his wording? I didn't say that he needed to be offensive, and it's his choice how he words it, but if he agrees that they are mercenaries, why not say so? Softening words is something that you do at the enemy's request, not something that you should offer out of concern for offending someone. My opinion though: freedom of speech governs your right to phrase it as you wish.

 

in response to Dupin & Yguy:

"I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful."

 

People have stopped even reading what I post, which I take as a compliment. Did I say that Blackwater (or even the United States government) had unilateral support from Christians residing on American soil? Absolutely not, and it would be ridiculous to suggest that either organization did. However, Erik Prince founded and runs Blackwater on a platform of supporting Christian ideals. If you wish to respond to Scahill's work, I would be very interested to read what you produce. More likely, though, I think you will find yourself disgusted by the corruption, murder, and blatant violation of both US and international law that follows Blackwater (and to be fair, the majority of other mercenary forces) around the world.

oh heres my sauce:

Romans 13:1-8

 

God didn't appoint these people, so they have no authority in His eyes. Of course, you wouldn't understand that passage because the only bits of Christianity you understand are the ones that Hitler liked to quote, or any of the left blogosphere.

You'd think that Paul, the person that wrote that passage wouldn't have been beheaded by the Romans. But he was.

 

I don't see how Christianity applies to Wikileaks. How about you create your own thread instead of derailing every single other one?

Not that I have a problem with Obama...

So true. That nobel prize was ridiculous.

 

Well, he didn't start any new wars... but then again, he didn't really do anything to end the ones that they're fighting.

Well, I think the intention of the "surge" in Afghanistan is to hopefully push the ending of the war sooner...

 

My issue with it is that he hadn't done anything - I'd much prefer if the nobel prize was awarded for an accomplishment rather than in lieu of such.

All I can say is in the above picture, Assange looks like a 007 bad guy.

 

I thought that it was pretty much the classic hero portrait: staring above and beyond the comprehension of mere mortals.

Assange looks like he's thinking,

 

"How bad will my butt hurt when I get jailed and drop the soap in the shower?"

Rape is never funny. I'm completely serious right now. Sorry, I don't mean to flame, but just no.

I have to agree with this, particularly due to the number of petty criminals who are turned into something much worse from abuse in jail.

Other inmates at the jail Julian is being held are actually slipping notes of support under his door <3:

 

Also, there were some good posters about prison rape

At this stage WikiLeaks has breached no international law and no laws of any country, but Mastercard, Visa and PayPal have all blacklisted it. Yet all three continue to enable the support of settlements that are in breach of international law, in some cases of Israeli law, and in defiance of US policy on settlements under successive Republican and Democrat administrations.

edit: THANKS, BLOODSTAIN for that post. Prison-rape jokes need to stop. It's a serious issue and a serious problem in America.

Did you know what "dropping the soap" meant when you used it...?

In Soviet Russia, glass eats OTers.

Well, he drops the soap, which makes a slippery spot, so he falls and hurts his butt.

 

...right?

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

[hide=Tifers say the darndest things]

I told her there was a secret method to doing it - and there is - but my once nimble and agile fingers were unable to perform because I was under the influence.

I would laugh, not hate. I'm a male. :(

Since when was Ireland an island...? :wall:

I actually have a hobby of licking public toilet seats.
