Now we can see how far US democracy, freedom of expression, etc can be stretched.

Sadly this is how liberal societies operate. When push comes to shove, they are sometimes as bad as the dictatorships they ostensibly oppose.

All in in though I'm not surprised. Amazon must have been under immense pressure, though it may influence those seeking to use a cloud hosting provider in the future as they might like their web presence not to be subject to the US government's opinion on their right to operate.

More concerning is the right wing vitriol, particularly those calling for execution of either Assange or Manning. I can't see the Obama administration indulging these calls but it really does weaken any attempts to reason with states that use execution more routinely.

I have to say I'm really enjoying watching the right-wing of American society froth at the mouth over this. Makes the wait for the next episode of Desperate Housewives much easier to endure.

And, Lest we forget:

KARL ROVE "OUTED" VALERIE PLAME (a CIA agent) DURING A TIME OF WAR AND THIS IS ALSO TREASON.

Naturally, since Karl is part of the Barking Mad Beyond Goebbels Establishment, he is not being held for such charges, nor, apparently are any being considered.

Justice in America is simply NOT justice -- it's a system of dual standards. If one is Barking Mad, one gets the benefit of either an insanity plea (understandable) or an "oversight" by law enforcement (not reasonable).

Either way, I would expect Mr. Assange's Defense Counsel to bring up this little tidbit, should the need arise.

Problem? I'm not being ignored since you seem to love responding to my posts so thanks for listening.

Conversely it is far too easy to try and hide behind what other countries have been up to in an attempt to divert attention from American activity.

The Americans are in the process of attempting to exert influnce and control across the entire globe.

What the USA do around the world is of major significance, partly due to the fact that they have set themselves up as leaders of the free world and upholders of peace, smiter of evil, etc, etc, and so on.

Still, immaterial to the article

But is it?

I'm referring to an incident of whistle blowing against American diplomatic activities from a few years ago; this article refers to incidents of whistle blowing against American diplomatic activities from a more recent date.

In both cases the Americans sought to discredit the whistle blower; in both cases the Americans were embarrassed diplomatically.

There are other paralles between the two events if you care to read up on the story of Katherine Gun. Just Google her name, it makes very interesting reading especially the subsequent court case and the subsequent dropping of all charges in spite of her guilty plea.

He can and he does, oddly enough. As did Katherine Gun.

Resistance really is the best way to combat American imperialism and both Assange and Gun have managed to expose the USA for what it really is about.

Personally I feel very satisfied and look forward to further disclosures.

I think you're confused

somewhat, but not totally confused.

In response to a question about my own emails I was just rehashing a few of the things the USA has been caught re-handed trying - and succeeding - to do. One of them was attempting to get the offices of UN members bugged in order to pressure them into going along with their Iraq war aims.

The USA is an empire with imperialistic tendancies. Therefore the only way to oppose them is to resist them. What Wikileaks is doing should be applauded.

Long may it continue.

I wonder if you would feel the same way if he was publishing your "private e-mails" on the internet also.

The major difference here, of course, is that I have never sought to spy on and bug the offices of UN Nations in order to influence their support for illegal invasions.

The USA in a law unto it self.

I don't have that conclusion, but compared to Obama she is. That is what she would have counted on if she decided to run in 2012, that she wasn't as far out there as Obama.

And here's how 'moderate' Clinton responded to a question of American response to an Iranian attack on Israel:

Well, the question was, if Iran were to launch a nuclear attack on Israel, what would our response be. And I want the Iranians to know that if I'm the president, we will attack Iran. And I want them to understand that, because it does mean that they have to look very carefully at their society, because at whatever stage of development they might be in their nuclear weapons program, in the next 10 years during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel we would be able to totally obliterate them.

thus taking away from her the one strong point that she had against Obama, that she was a strong leader and capable of dealing with people and was more of a moderate.

But seriously, how do you arrive at the conclusion that HC is a moderate? What are you smoking!?

The biggest worry for her is if the world news organisations now do their job and investigate her. She might have to resign, if it can be shown that she was responsible for ordering US diplomats to engage in espionage in the United Nations, in violation of the international covenants to which the US has signed up

Funny how the DHS (Depatment of Homeland Security) can shut down torrent websites over the weekend, but can't seem to keep state secrets from getting out.

Well as far as charging Assange goes there is the practical problem that most of the information published by WikiLeaks wasn't secret. Then there is the debate about whether the documents were properly classified – there are detailed rules in the US about what can and cannot be classified.

Maybe good intentions at the time but naive as hell in fighting the war on terrorism and now has just tied our hands on how we really should be dealing with this non-state actor who could care less about how many American lives he endangers or gets killed because of his reckless actions. GITMO was designed for Assange and his ilk and its to bad he isn't on flight there right now.

Spoken like a true American. Well said, and congratulations for single-handedly confirming what many around the world already suspect about USA.

So Uncle Sam is trying to whip up the legal paperwork to get Assange. If only Americans had the same mindset in going after Saudi financing for global terrorism.

My fiver is on Assange to be on the cover of Time as Person of the Year 2010.

Political lying and cheating rooted in protecting corporate interests is the root cause of the problems and turning the guns on the whistle blowers is shabby.

No pity for them what so ever.

What are they expecting, anyway? So long as the USA continues to pursue a course of violent overthrow of any (defenseless) state it deems unmanagable it'll continue to lose soldiers and credibility.

How long before Julian Assange is "taken out"? Washington has already tried character assassination with the help of Swedish government stooges, but this hasn't worked. Julian knows better than any of us what the powers that be are capable of. He clearly has balls of steel.

Long may he live, and keep up the good work.

@AuntyAmerican, if that is the case, then why did China make it known that countries should not send representatives to the Noble Prize ceremony for the jailed Chinese dissident being held?

Well they 'let it be known' as you rightly pointed out. The thing with the USA is it'll speak openly about it's democracy and mission for peace and then secretly do all the things you can now read about.

Oh, yeah, it'll also invade any defenceless nation that gets out of hand - notice how NK, as terrible as the USA love to tell the world it is, hasn't been invaded.

So. Very. Typical.

The US is an Empire with Imperial interests. If you accept that, it's not surprising that it takes measures to keep control over its "allies." Domestic and International resistance against US Imperialism is the only thing that can stop these activities.

Haha listen to all the Americans who are quite happy for their country to carpet bomb NK. And they think they'd 'win' any conflict, too.

How very typically arrogant.

They couldn't even win against a rag tag bunch of Taliban with nothing but grenades and AK47. So what will you do, Uncle Sam? Flatten Pyongyang with B52s then send in your boys (or more likely someone else's boys).

I wonder do all those anti US base protestors in South Korea are still pushing for the bases to leave now?

The S. Koreans don't actually need US intervention. The US, on the other hand, has gotten it self so deeply entrenched in the region militarily that it would take more than mere protests and wishing to remove them.

Actually, the Americans have a lot of respect for the S. Korean military:

...we are dealing with Islamist extremists who are slow learners.

Indeed, so slow and stupid that they have kept the world's biggest military killing machine bogged down in a conflict for 10 years.

The Taliban government offered to hand Bin Laden over to the US authorities if and when they handed over the evidence linking him to the atrocity, Washington failed to do so and still hasn't produced any evidence as to his complicity; Neither does the FBI have him down as wanted for that particular crime.

So what exactly are the American's doing over there?

The concept for 9/11 might have originated in Afghanistan but more likely it was Pakistan, money came from Saudi Arabia as did the majority of the perpetrators. Planning took place in Germany and training in Waziristan and the United States.

No Afghans were involved in anyway, no government was involved, at least not officially. Could it have been that Washington decided after thirty years of conflict, Afghanistan would be an easy pushover like Panama and Grenada?

Interestingly it's situations like Afghanistan where empires usually get a their first and last lesson on the limits of empire, which is why the country is called the Graveyard of Imperialism, because of those who've come unstuck there.

That's okay. You seem to be unaware that the Dubai Police and Yemen security are Muslim and are attempting to blame this on scaremongering about 'Muslims'. I think that is harder to believe.

And you seem to be unaware that Obama is facing mid-term elections. A cynical attempt to remind the 'American People' why they need to be fearful. Just like the equally well-timed European terror warning a while ago, in the wake to USA killing several Pakistani soldiers.

You American's are going to be at war for a generation or more. It's sad, really. I pity you.
