I hope Obama drones his ***!
Rather then using abusive language against Snowden, why don't you elaborate on why you think he deserves to die? This is the problem with most people, they would rather soak in whatever the media tells them and use logical fallacies to make their point rather then intelligently explain their position.
You're right, that is the problem with most people. However, I teach classified applied math to our military and know how infosec works.
When you take a position requiring trust and break that trust, the consequences should be proportional to the degree of trust that was given. For example, cops breaking the law should receive harsher sentences than civilians. Moreover, an intentional breach is the worst kind. This wasn't like a slip of the tongue. In particular, releasing secrets for enemies is about as unpatriotic as it gets. Lastly, I find life sentences to prison pointless, so just kill him and get it over with.
First off: Snowden did not release information to the "enemy", unless you consider U.S citizens the enemy.
Second off: Snowden did not compromise our national security! I get sick of saying this! He was trying to let his country know that they do not live in the free country they think they do. Telling people that the NSA is spying on their phone calls does NOT compromise our security. Snowden didn't leak blueprints for a bomb, or battle strategies for a war. He leaked that the government was breaking the laws in place for THEM.
Glad to see you, Pero! :2wave: Missed you!
I'm curious. Why is he not a patriot, IYV? Is it because of what he originally did, or the fact that he fled after the fact?
I have no need to take up each thing that wants to throw its cause on us and show that it is occupied only with itself, not with us, only with its good, not with ours. Look at the rest for yourselves. Do truth, freedom, humanity, justice, desire anything else than that you grow enthusiastic and serve them?
They all have an admirable time of it when they receive zealous homage. Just observe the nation that is defended by devoted patriots. The patriots fall in bloody battle or in the fight with hunger and want; what does the nation care for that? Joy the manure of their corpses the nation comes to "its bloom!" The individuals have died "for the great cause of the nation," and the nation sends some words of thanks after them and—has the profit of it. I call that a paying kind of egoism.
This is a no-brainer. Yes, the man is a hero. History has shown that when a government begins to turn on its own citizens, it is time to replace that government. This is a time-sensitive issue. They have openly declared that Thomas Jefferson and people (such as doomsday preppers) who wish to retain the right to protect themselves, are terrorists.
Meanwhile, they've used our tax dollars to build elaborate underground cities that will benefit only them in a doomsday scenario, and they are arming themselves to the teeth in preparation for something (?). Large unprecedented purchases of hollow-point rounds not by the military, but by agencies that operate domestically, like the SSA, EPA, DHS, and I believe even the weather bereau made a purchase. Hollow-points are not used for training - which is the reason they gave.
To those who comment that Snowden is a traitor: your comments are indicative of your failure as a US citizen because you are unwittingly supporting dictatorship and fascism.
Snowden is dirt.
When you take a position requiring trust and break that trust, the consequences should be proportional to the degree of trust that was given.
then offer us proof what he said was wrong
until you do, Snowden should be found a whistleblower, and patriot
Apply some common sense. If what's being done by the NSA is so darn evil then why is it that only one in tens of thousands of civilian employees and contractors goes ape **** over what's going on? :roll:
