COMMENT TO A VIDEO ON CONSORTIUM NEWS

 

“As Manning Goes to Jail, Watch the 19th Vigil for Assange”

 

A truly brave person, Chelsea Manning.

We have very few like her.

There clearly would a lot less ugly crap from America – lies and unnecessary wars and dark secrecy around them – if we had more like her.

But you don’t get decency with empire. All the rewards for careers go for displaying other qualities.

If there is anyone who deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, it is Chelsea.

But it won’t happen.

The Nobel people are as intimidated today as the UN is about doing anything that might embarrass the US, the way Martin Luther King’s prize did.

The prizes have become meaningless.
