    It was brave act Pvt Manning, albeit a very stupid one. Being an activist while serving the in United States Military has consequences.

    A life of hard labor is his future under DADT.

    The people on the ground are certainly the ones who carry the burden in the entirety of the situation. In the case of Mr. Manning, the amount and duration of the shit was shifted to this. Again, for trying to do the right thing.

    Once you sign you become a military asset. Once you're convicted by the USMCJ, you are very limited on what rights you can expect.

    He knew the game he was playing, about like AGP thinks.

    He hasn't been convicted.

    US military law is manmade, therefore flawed and subject to change (see: segregation). Just cause Jarhead Supreme Command says it's so don't necessarily mean we have to accept it forever an ever.

    You should be a fucking philosopher.

    Yeah wherever. As it stands now his ass belong to the Army he betrayed. So he quietly sits in wait of judgment in a disciplined, orderly, and efficient manner.

    All rights are lost when you enlist in the volunteer military... in short you can face hard labor at Leavenworth for life for whatever charges the commanders wish to levy... it's almost medival! Military trials aren't close to what you see in civilian courts... and our court systems never guarantee justice... this guy Manning is going to get hung as an example is my prediction... not justice... to send a harsh warning to all others with that so-called "security clearance" level. Too bad... I feel sorry for the fella... but he had to have some knowledge the hammers of military hell would come down upon him if he was caught!

    Manning didn't betray, the U.S./Army are betraying the laws and values they are supposed to stand for, according to their slick PR campaigns anyways.

    So true... it's a slick p.r. scheme the u.s. army uses to lasso the unemployed into service... betrayal & deceit the cornerstone of the "all volunteer" u.s. military machine... those old enough remember what Pres. Ike Eisenwhower said: "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."
    Government & Military are twins coupled to our war machine industries... make no doubt about it! Nobody nor anything will undue those connections... those who interfere or disrupt, like Manning, pay a harsh price for their activism in the name of free speech.

    Manning is no less a whistleblower on wrongdoings than Daniel Ellsberg, or Sherron Watkins have been.

    Then why didn't the military just come out and say that they were sorry but they made a mistake?

    The ultimate excuse, isn't? Can justify everything with such a statement, without the need to look into things too deeply. It's why it has been used then and now, and will again be used, and by all sides.

    Having dreamy thoughts of how swell it is the US soldier betrayed his sworn duty is not reasonable. For that that type of expectation join the peace corpse.

    Here's a few more quotes to digest and reflect on:

    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed."

    "Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels - men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion."

    "How far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without?"

    All issued by: Dwight D. Eisenhower

    My only question now is where are such statesman/leaders in our body politic today?

    You're delusional.

    First and foremost it common sense that the military kills people and breaks things. Don't like it, find another place to take showers with hawt well defined man-hunks.

    Who knew some dumb-ass'd reporter would think it's safe to hang the gun-toting terrorist?

    When you join the US military you stand in a room full of other unemployeed 18 year olds, hold your right hand up and recite:

    "I promise I won't do some gay-ass shit like Manning did cause these unemployeed 18 year olds all around me could get really fucked if I do.
    So help me God"

    As sad as it sounds, if we want to keep calling the U.S. a civilization the poor fool has to die.

    If nothing is more important than your life then you are not able to be of use to any social group, not a family, a tribe or a nation.
    If you really believe your life is more important than your people's security then be glad you live in a very easy world. Most people throughout most of human existence have to make that choice regularly.
    Do you think treason is always punishable by death because people are angry?
    The real world has no place for personal emotions.
    Feelings are for children and music and loveplay.
    Treason being punishable by death is a matter of self preservation.

    I don’t think Manning meant the US any harm. I just think Manning is too naive and childlike to be trusted with anything. I am sorry for him and his family but allowing someone like that to live will get many other people killed.
    You are an US citizen I imagine?
    You do realize millions want you dead for that reason alone, right?
    You are not some simple man-child like Manning are you?
