@16: Projection is when you apply your own undesired feelings or impulses to someone else, not when you wonder if someone who appears to be drinking a lot of wine early in the morning may have a problem with alcohol.

Try using Google if you don't know what a word means, you can just type it in, and it usually gives you a definition right there!

@8: Well, if his goal is recreating a photo (which I assume he was doing), I find it odd he would choose to add a prop on his own, since it was not in the original photo.

I could most certainly be wrong, but it seems the simplest answer is that Mudede is drinking a big ass glass of wine early in the morning. I married an alcoholic, so perhaps I am simply more sensitive to such things.

@5: I know the purpose of the photo, but I don't know many non-alcoholics who drink big ass glasses of wine for breakfast.

If Trump had a drink in his photo, I would assume it was there as a prop.

I could not care less if the president elect stages a photo shoot, which is only something every politician ever does all the time.

I am much more concerned with how much Mudede drinks in the morning, considering with how haggard he looks.

@17: Which comments on this thread do you believe violate the site's policies? You can just use the report feature, I am pretty sure that what it is there for.

@30: How big of an ego must you have to think that anyone who disagrees with you is a troll? Or to think that you alone are allowed to express viewpoints in a comment thread?

What is ironic is that trolling is about derailing a comment thread, which you are accusing me of for staying on topic, whereas you dodged an on topic question to throw a childish insult-laden tantrum. So well trolled, I guess, because know we are just talking about your little tantrum.

@28: Please do, if it stops the whining.

@25: When did I say she did not serve time or take responsibility? The point is that there were real life victims of what she did, victims that did not need to exist if she took a moment to actually view the documents she was leaking. Or, I don't know, just release the stuff relating to war crimes.

Personally, I do not feel that "heroes" put innocent people's lives at risk without their consent for their own ends, but to each their own.

I got the answer I was looking for from your complete refusal to address the actual question though, so thanks.

Oh, and god forbid people disagree with you on the internet. Grow up.

@23: Are the many Afghans (who aided US forces) who Manning put in danger with her blind data dump just haters, or do they just not count? Should they have had a say if their own lives and safety was put at risk, or was it ok for Manning to put their lives and the lives of their families in jeopardy for her own ends?

Just wondering how this qualifies her as a humanitarian hero, unless of course you just think Afghan lives don't really matter.

Manning's sentence was in now way over the top for committing espionage, people tend to mix her up with Assange and Snowden who leaked documents, but could never be charged with espionage. Leaking documents/whistleblowing is not the same as espionage, and everything becomes different once you factor in military vs. civilian.

That being said, if commuting her sentence is the only way to get her out of torturous solitary confinement, so be it. Better a criminal go free early than be tortured by the government.

But it would be better if we would just stop torturing criminals.
