He doesn't just preach his ideology, he acts upon it. That's why I find him admirable.
A rapist and a coward who would betray anybody if it suits him. Sorry I just don't get it.

A rape case that was never proven.

He can't be a coward if he dared to expose the US top secrets knowing he will forever be on the run from the US govt.

Yes, a coward if he has to run away. I have more respect for the Private that gave the information to Assange, who is facing his government, for betraying his oath and his country's interest. I'll give you a quote that we should remember in all our actions.

Which is:

There is only one basic human right,
the right to do as you damn well please.
And with it comes the only basic human duty,
the duty to take the consequences.

P. J. O'Rourke

Assange refuses to face the consequences and that is why he is a coward and accused rapist.

So if you pissed off a Mafia boss the only correct course of action is to go back to him and LET HIM fit you for concrete shoes?
Why does Assange have to face anything from the US is it HIS country or his government?

The United States Marine Corps: Sergeant Major Daniel Daly

In 1900, during the Boxer Rebellion in China, he received his first Medal of Honor for single-handedly defending his position against repeated attacks and inflicted casualties of around 200 on the attacking Boxers.
His second Medal of Honor came fifteen years later, when he was fighting with US forces supporting the government in Haiti against rebels. On the night of October 24, 1915, he was part of a group of 35 marines who were ambushed by a force of approximately 400 Cacos (Haitian insurgents). He led one of the three groups of men during the fight to reach a nearby fort, and was awarded the medal for his conspicuous actions.
He was awarded the Navy Cross for "repeated deeds of heroism and great service" during the Battle of Belleau Wood in World War I.

Daly is said to have yelled, "Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?" to the men in his company prior to charging the Germans during the Battle of Belleau Wood in World War I, imitating the words of the Prussian King Frederick the Great at the Battle of Kolin. (Personal note... Pretty bad ass, he used the words of a Prussian king against... Prussians! :D)
Major General Butler described Daly as, "The fightin'est Marine I ever knew!" Daly reportedly was offered an officer's commission twice to which he responded that he would rather be, "...an outstanding sergeant than just another officer.

SOURCE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Daly Read about him.

The Boxer Rebellion : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxer_Rebellion Read about it here if you're curious. Its really quite an interesting and important event in history that more people should know about.


The United States Navy: Commodore Mathew Calbraith Perry


A lot of you are probably familiar with this man. As he has a very important relationship with your precious Japan and why it is what it is today.


As he arrived, Perry ordered his ships to steam past Japanese lines towards the capital of Edo, and turn their guns towards the town of Uraga. Perry refused Japanese demands to leave. He then demanded permission to present a letter from President Millard Fillmore, and threatened to use force if the Japanese boats around the American squadron did not disperse.
Perry attempted to intimidate the Japanese by presenting them a white flag and a letter which told them that in case they chose to fight, the Americans would destroy them. Perry ordered some buildings in the harbor shelled. Perry's ships were equipped with new Paixhans shell guns, cannons capable of wreaking great destruction with every shell. In Japan, the term "Black Ships", used for centuries to refer to foreign trade vessels, would later come to symbolize a threat imposed by Western technology.
After the Japanese agreed to receive the letter from the American President, Perry landed at Kurihama (in modern-day Yokosuka) on July 14, 1853, presented the letter to attending delegates, and left for the Chinese coast, promising to return for a reply.

He is also one of the reasons for modern day United States Naval supremacy.

Question: Who counted his kills?




I'll just go with, "I only did my duty, and what I was told to do, as well as I could."
He served his country when he was needed. That is badass enough for me.
Kill numbers don't impressed me.

I'm not impressed on soldiers who "claim they serve their country" but, in reality, there's no war/battle and they are just there to rip people's tax dollars and earn easy military privileges.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit: I won't delete what I stated above. I respect anyone's views.



I was about to join a military when I found out that my colleague was using me to boost up his rank. So, I have a beef with that.

And, my cousin is not a good role model.




There would be a time, when push comes to shove, we have to defend for ourselves like a mother rescuing her child, regardless the danger.

People would either "fight or flight."

I got pick on, jump on, shot, and even ran over. So, I'm in a state of being defensive.

I just watch several Youtube clips about ABC's "What Would You Do?"
And, I'm like, "where were these people when I was in unfortunate situations?"

You sir, are a moron. There is no war because there ARE soldiers and if you are an American you should be ashamed of yourself. We pay for our monster of a military because we can. The money we put into our defense is not the problem, do not let the liberal media fool you into thinking it is. In fact the money we pay the federal government is specifically FOR defense. That is their primary reason for existing.

And his kills were counted by the FUCKING BODIES he left behind. No one else could claim them because they KNEW they did not shoot them. In reality he actually probably had MORE kills than what was claimed for him.

Important thing about Bush,(and I'm on this topic because I believe its important info for you.) a conservative republican who started a war. By the end of his second term he left office with plans in place that would have put us in a surplus (A REAL ONE not the bullshit one Clinton made up) by 2012. Obama and his administration fucked that. Blamed everything on the previous administration and everyone believed them. HA! Look it up. The information is there. Find it.

Conservative republicans are not racist warmongers. Conservative republicans are realists. We're not caught in some magical unicorn world of fairies and good people and cotton candy fields that liberals seem to be in. Martin Luther King was a Conservative republican. So was Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan. 3 people liberal democrats (who by the way you sound a lot like, which is why I'm on this rant) love to claim as their own to get them votes. The funny thing is. People believe it... And no, the republican and democratic parties did not magically change sides. But I'm way off topic.

(Well technically Abraham Lincoln was a liberal republican.. his ideas were actually pretty liberal at the time.)
