Internationally syndicated columnist Eric Margolis discusses the biggest intelligence leak in history courtesy WikiLeaks and (probably) Bradley Manning, the much higher Afghan civilian casualties than publicly acknowledged, much ado about Pakistan’s “betrayal” of the U.S. by supporting the Taliban, how WikiLeaks endangers politicians but not soldiers in the field and why the Taliban’s acquisition of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles would lead to a victory over NATO forces.

  2. Heh. Margolis sez 'blot our [U.S.] national honor…. He must be living in a dream world.

  3. The USA is The Great Satan. Worse in Fallujah than Hiroshima. Revenge for killing four SS "contractors" from Blackwater. The Great Satan´s revenge: Babies are born with two heads in Fallujah. Down with the USA, down with The Great Satan. More satanic: According to Seymour Hersh in Iraq they kidnapped small boys and their mothers and forced their mothers to watch while they were being raped by US soldiers. And it was videofilmed by a female soldier in uniform. Compared to the Pentagon and the CIA the SS and Gestapo were nice people. Let´s hope United Bluff, better known as The Great Satan, will go bankrupt so it can´t afford to terrorize the world any more.
