Not saying you should sign the petition. Just saying the petition is at www.ManningNobel.org

I guess the theory is that he was personally sickened by, and revealed, war crimes in hopes of stopping them?

1. I'll sign the feckin' thing!
Manning exposed war crimes.

Is the United States ever right now? We grew up thinking we were the good guys. Now, after the 2,000 election, The Bush Administration, 911, the Iraq War, the mortgage derivatives meltdown and bailout we know we are no longer "the good guys". We aren't even in the same ball park with the good guys. No matter how many times the Mainstream Media tells us otherwise, Manning is a hero and on the side of right.

It's way past time for the US military, intelligence and surveillance system to join the team of right.

Like that is going to happen with this bunch of power drunk greedy fucks in charge.

2. We wuz carefully brainwashed.
Some of us, however, still believe the scenario.

And think people who deprogrammed somehow are evil and do not love their exceptional country, given to white folks by God with manifest destiny and all that other stuff.

I don't get it. Didn't the same force create all the continents?

3. Plate tectonics.

It's a favorite interest of mine. How geography determined the course of evolution and stuff. It used to look like this.

4. I always had a hard time imagining how Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt were empires.
Temperatures around Luxor can hit around 120 at noon during the summer, most of the land is desert, etc.

I never thought about the tectonic plates, though.
