In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes", Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said he loved watching banks "squirm" about rumors of his latest upcoming leak.  (Source: CBS)

Questions about Mr. Assange's motives (he has called himself an anarchist in the past) went unasked, as did the question of whether Wikileaks might be profiting off the stock shifts its leaks cause.  (Source: CBS)

Dude, you can't argue the side of butchers and murderers. So give it up.

And you don't, argue that side ?
Have you ever seen “Occupation 101” the Jews are the new fascist in the middle east, and the US is fully supporting them, till you seen that movie any argument from your side is sorta non valid.
If a 9 year old Palestinian child try's to kill it self because it simply dose not wane live anymore, Israel is is doing something wrong, and America in supporting them is guilty by association.
Killing 3000 innocent civilians in one terrorist attack is not justifiable, ever.

I never condoned that
First let me say I did not agree the actions taken on 9/11 by the terrorist

I did say I could have agreed on justifiable targets.
but I do understand them and to a degree even would have condone the attack on pentagon, CIA and even the white house, just because of the history of damage US foreign policy has done to the middle east.

100.000 Documented civilian deaths from violence and counting.
Yeah they are only collateral damage, that will make all the difference for the families of those ho ware killed, IMHO Iraq was better of whit Sadam, at least there was order then.

And the USA is also just as responsible for all the killing done during the Shah's regime, as they railroaded a democratic election and put a man in to power that killed and tortured his people, that's why those students occupied the US embassy in 1980, because they feared the US would help the Shah back in power again.
I scoff at you saying the BBC is neutral. BBC is as biased as the rest of them. The BBC owns broadcast media in the UK, they are just as biased as the rest of them.

Seriously ?, do you even know how the BBC is funded ?
BBC get money from the state, that means the left and right wing party's have to agree how they spend that money, the only way they can do that is by being as neutral as possible, I will not say that everything the BBC produces is unbiased, seen things that I considered left but also right orientated, it of course still is made by people, but in general, and specially the news, they bring that as unbiased as possible.
If Saudi troops were stationed in the Vatican we would probably pray and hope the occupiers leave before shedding more blood. The Pope would ask that noone do anything of violence. that is the difference man, an extremist christian will give up their life to let an infidel live...

Now you are just being silly ^_^

Yeah I am sure the pope and most Christians would prefer no bloodshed, but those “extremist christians” ware still pretty easy willing to go to war, over a lie!
And its not the first time, and every major conflict Vietnam, Gulf I & II ware started by manipulation and lies

It is a complicated answer. The real beginnings started a lot early in the '20's when a young Vietnamese nationalist, who would eventually be known as Ho Chi Minh, was in the U.S. studying. He wrote letters to the U.S. presidents asking for their help in ridding his country of French colonialism. They were ignored. During WWII, this same person was contacted by the U.S. military, and told that in return for Vietnamese help in fighting the Japanese, after the war was over, the U.S. would help Vietnam achieve independence from the French. This promise was broken, and various factions of Vietnamese under the eventual command of Minh, united to fight the occupying military of France. Much of the cost of the French presence in Vietnam was borne by the U.S. from the very beginning under the guise of fighting communistic expansion. After the peace accords were signed in 1954-55, one of the stipulations was that Vietnam was to be divided into two countries with elections to be held withing two years in each section regarding total unification into one country. It was the South Vietnam portion, under the control of their U.S. backed gov't that refused to hold these elections. Thus basically the war was born again. It was not so much a war of communistic aggresion, as it was a civil war to reunite the country as a whole. The main reasons it was perceived as a communist threat, were some of the ideology's of the north, and the fact that they North turned to communist countries for the supplies and support they would need in their fight, since the U.S. would not provide them with any aid, and the U.S. clearly sided with the consistently corrupt regimes of the southern divide.

Then the Tonkin Gulf Incident/Lie Launched Vietnam War.

Gulf War I
Bush senior tricked Saddam to invade Kuwait.
Before invading Kuwait – the incident that led to the first Gulf War, which led us to put troops on Saudi soil, which led Osama to declare war against us, which led to 9/11, and which also all led to the current Iraq War – before Saddam ever invaded Kuwait, back when he was our ally, he asked us if we would mind if he invaded Kuwait.

Gulf War II
Bush junior wants to show pappy he can invade Iraq to over a even bigger lie.
Tricky Dick, and slippery Donald Rumsfeld are rubbing there hands as all there friends and old companies will get rich of the war.

Just because Americans are not willing to look at the history leading up to events, dose not mean that others are not willing to do so.

People how fail to learn from history are domed to repeat it.
People how fail to learn from history correctly are just simply doomed.

The truth is in the eye of the beholder, and as long people are not willing to look true the eyes of the other side we will keep on having these wars.

And I wonder how the butchers are in the eyes of the Muslims?
