On one hand we have private Bradley Manning serving in the US Army, observing military obscenities and deciding to blow the whistle and wake the world up to what was really going on.
He turned whistleblower on the US actions in the war in Iraq, a war that has been proven to be false in every way.
Hes been tortured, imprisoned and will most likely never again be a free man.
On the other hand we have HSBC, a British bank admitting to laundering drug money, aiding terrorism either directly or indirectly via banks and countries aiding terrorists, and openly committing international crimes by ignoring sanctions on countries like Iran.
There is absolutely no question about which party committed the worst crimes, but Bradley Manning is still in prison and HSBC receives a fine and avoids any other consequences from committing those crimes.
America is such a hypocrit. If I were a greedy criminal pig, I think I would choose to be a banker.
I agree with Cenk Uygur from TYT when he said today, "if you are not mad about this you are either part of the elite or you're are profoundly stupid...we should be in the streets over this." "There is no justice at all....the elite have bought the justice system."
So true. I am very angry about this.
