    This is the 3rd time I've seen this video, fuckhead!

    First off, are we supposed to take their word that the van just dropped off insurgents?

    It's pretty easy to paste text onto a video after the fact.

    Secondly, no, this is not clear! You cannot tell for sure, if that blurred image is an RPG.

    And third, enemy combatants do not hang out in the open like this.

    If they were enemy combatants, why aren't more of them armed?

    First, I'm going to laugh in your face.

    :lmao:

    Second -- really? You really think that RPG-shaped thing is a camera bag?

    Lay off the meth, kid. And stop sucking terrorist ass.

    The sentence is in. He got 35 years at Leavenworth with a little time off for good behavior time served. Amnesty Inernational is appealing and the small group of supporters are protesting, but the sentence is only about a third of what the judge could have given him. Does the military parole folks early? Don't know whether he will have to serve it all or not.

    The judge gives the sentence but the Command Authority has to approve it - which I'm certain will happen.

    There is a parole system, again with the Command Authority. I doubt he'll get any break at all!

    Considering his multiple crimes and Wikileaks editing the video to absolve the terrorists of their war crimes, PFC Manning got off easy.

    It signals other enlistees considering espionage that if they betray their country, they have no worries of getting a death penalty.

    My God. This nation recruits people from overseas with the promise that they can earn citizenship with service.

    This is a horror waiting to happen to our nation.

    This takes our military down the wrong road. :evil:
