Step away from Assange hes just a dick head public figure, Its an entire team at wikileaks. They often do show care by leaving names out of particular documents. The idea of wikileaks does not lend its self to putting out just some of the documents, for it to make sense they must release it all or they are just as bad as the people they are portraying.

Repeat that replacing North Korea with America and South Korea with multiple other choices. I don't give a toot what North Korea do they have the right to do what they want with themselves. I have North Koreans to care about it for me and themselves, the question is why does America care for them when their own people are getting farked in the arse on the daily.

Why can't they beat their woman, its not illegal in their country and your taking extreme cases here. I'd be willing to wager that there isn't that much more violence against woman in the middle east then there is per capita in America or New Zealand. I've visited a few areas now in the middle east and id say you just get the blown out of proportion view from western media. They actively pursue WMDs because they are being attacked by an outlet that has their own WMDs. Remember they did not initiate this fight, America trying to control the middle east made this so called Al-Qaeda 'monster' blossom and grow.

If America wasn't so aggressive i'd believe they were protecting their own country, but this so called "protect america" saga has spawned from their own assaults. I agree the UN are total crap.

If the U.S. gets rid of their own, i don't have the right to.
