    How about I show you videos of white phosphorous or flamethrowers or depleted uranium shells or the ******* h-bomb while we talk about your goddamn "morals". They think they're doing the right thing as much as our soldiers do, dumbass. But they don't kill civilians.

    One thing about Wikileaks... They themselves don't leak this information, people within our government and/or military leak them this. They are just a central hub for this information. Censor what you want, but this information is already out there and easily obtainable. Don't hate Wikileaks, hate the whistleblowers.

    Good thing sisqo is against the government singing the thong song and keeping is informed of what the gubment is hiding

    I guess that tells you something about employees working at trendy Apple.



    His point still stands. This information was collected against their will for nefarious reasons -- it was intended to hurt, plain and simple. Oh, sure, they try and spin it like information will set us free, but that's not their ideology.

    Assange is a henchman of the anti-government/ anarchist agenda, and he's certainly not motivated by giving the world a helping hand - he wants to topple regimes based on his own twisted political ideology.

    I'm glad America doesn't stand for these underhanded tactics. We enjoy our freedom here, even at the cost of ignorance regarding classified information.



    Hey, I'll send you a video of a soldier getting his head carved from his body with a kitchen knife as he screams (you can hear the knife grinding through his spine), then we'll talk about morals.
    +15, good response. I agree completely

    The government is a lot like your mothers room, there a lot of things that happen in there you shouldn't ever know. Wikileaks isn't a way to let knowledge be free. Its a way to attack America.

    You dont understand what a DDoS is do you? Its dozens of GIGABTYES of data running through into ONE websites servers every SECOND. Far as I know the biggest attack ever was a whopping 3.5 TB/s accumulated during Obama's presidential inauguration. Thats about the same amount of data traffic the U.S. produces every second. The WHOLE damn country. A DDoS isn't something you can block. Only hope to god you have enough servers and bandwidth to survive.

    No one likes an anarchist. Just because the U.S. is the biggest superpower doesnt mean they should be brought down, in fact if they suddenly disappeared you can bet the rest of the worlds economy would disappear too. Face it, making America go away isn't how to solve whatever sociological problems you may have.

    Hey, you wrote it. Not him. He didn't misquote you. He simply showed that what you said shined through with some genuine ineptitude.

    Never really knew what WikiLeaks is, I guess it's a good thing and a bad thing at the same time.

    What's your problem, Messany? You thought you could write an article even MENTIONING WikiLeaks without an utter flame war occurring? Take it down, this site is for the community learning what's new with Apple and the jailbreak community, not for heated free-for-all political debate that explodes into conspiracy theories and God vs. atheism (even if that hasn't happened yet, it happened on the article about the apple.com splashscreen, it's going to happen here).
