Iraqi war crimes - are reasons enough for wikileaks

Im sorry i cannot sit by and see The United States of America -- preach about first world democracy, the first world amendment to the US constitution and openly critisize China on its Human rights policy.

Whether you like the fact that US national diplomatic channels were published, or actually believe that operatives in the field are at risk -- you cannot disagree on the idea of wikileaks and preach the US constitution. War crimes in Iraq should be in the public domain. http://www.collateralmurder.com

Wikileaks has not broken any international laws by releasing this information, yet the actions of Amazon (in shutting down their EC2 hosting), EveryDNS (in removing their Internet naming address), PayPal (in stopping anyone in the world in sending e-funds to wikileaks), Mastercard and Visa (in stopping bank payments to wikileaks) has acted illegally.

This is the first documentary covering wikileaks. I urge you to watch it -- and as the wikilkeak founders said:

"Information [Truth] does not respect border. States are going to have to rethink how they approach information[Truth]. Any states that fails to do this will cease to exist". #wikileaks #amazon #paypal #visa #mastercard #opendns

Hi Suresh Kumar

I write to you on behalf of The Viewspaper (www.theviewspaper.net) which is India's largest youth paper and the 5th largest media company on Facebook.

We are organizing the World's Largest Tweet-A-Thon! and would like to invite you as a panelist for the same.

From American political journalists in the 1950s, to The Economist magazine not so long ago; speculation has run rife about India and whether we will survive as a nation.

Poverty. Corruption. Terrorism. Disease. Currency woes. We’ve got it all, and more. We’ve been written off, doomsdayed, delegitimized – but we keep coming back! What is the root of this appetite for adversity, this solid resilience?

It is our nation’s optimism. No matter how much you bring her down, India feels up!

A first of its kind initiative, the #IFeelUp Tweetathon is a 3-day virtual conference, which delights in the irrepressible state of the nation, in spite of its laundry list of issues. Over 72 hours, we’ll be bringing in 400 panelists for non-stop discussion, and that’s where you come in.

We would like to invite you as a panelist for a 30 minute session wherein you can participate from any part of the world.

If you're interested, kindly email us your contact information so that we could provide you with more details about the event.

I look forward to hearing from you.
