.@PunkPatriot Wikileaks are manning are two different issues. Completely.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot I am really suprised that you cannot see the flaw in the "Manning as whistleblower" fallacy. IT's not marginally sustainable
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot Just because you empathize with some outcome, does not make the action that produced it ethical, wise, or legal.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot Any informed person can envision 100 bad outcomes from such acts, and if you deny that, it's just intellectually dishonest.

.@Shoq Umm. No they aren't? The two are directly and inextricably linked by cause and effect.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot Because it's a total waste of energy. Cindy Sheehan is a can. Won't even be remembered a year from now
Shoq Value @Shoq
.,@PunkPatriot You're in love with the illusion of action and relevance. There's nothing there. Vapor activism. Empty gesture.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot You want to be relevant? Support REAL whistleblower initiatives and laws going forward. Not these illusions.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@a_picazo You have proven to be someone that argues in bad faith. I won't invest time in you again. Sorry.

.@Shoq You're defending an inappropriate overreaction by the US gov't by using a 'don't poke the bear' defense. #p2 #wikileaks
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot Sorry, but I don't see Manning as a "resister." That's a contrived fiction.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot Sorry, but it's very simple. Had Manning released a few pieces of evidence, you're have a case. He didn't
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot In fact, he was a disturbed kid who got suckered into releasing things sight unseen. Reckless and stupid. Not "heroic:
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@PunkPatriot Because we have whistleblower process. He didn't bother with them. Nor was his action proportionate. It was insane.
