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.

I mostly just feel that we as a country do not have the right to put our fingers in everyone else's pie for "our safety". They are not part of our country, and we should have really no internal diplomatic control. To initiate campaigns in other countries in order to get Puppet-A in office or pay Puppet-B off, so that we can get resources or cheap labor or some ultimately selfish goal, should not be something that we can just shrug off as justifiable.

The bully might steal all the wimpy kids lunch money, but over time, they get sick of it. So they band together and put the bully in his place. I can foresee this happening if we continue to act like we own the world and can do anything we want.

Also, I find it ridiculous that we find the need to go on these righteous rampages in order to "save" people. More often then not we just end up killing tons of civilians in attempts to get rid of "The Bad Guy".

Now this is all fine and dandy when everyone is well taken of at home base, but right now citizens of our own country are suffering, and yet we continue to spend money that could help them on blowing up people 10,000 miles away.

I'd be pretty happy spending whatever it takes to line our borders with anti-missile and aircraft systems, along with the military to respond in case of an attack, and then spend the rest on helping people out for once.

It's laughable that your first two posts Munky were somehow considered to be not black and white about Assange, seems pretty obvious to most people in this thread. If you truly felt that way you wouldn't always be posting about wikileaks in the negative. Hence my post, a lot of the information might not be what the US wants the rest of the world to know but at this point the rest of the world doesn't give a rats ass what secrets you want to hide.
