Legal The US is really ramping up its war on intellectual property infringement, a war which I'm sure will be just as successful, cheap and supported by the people as the wars on drugs and terrorism. The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them. Anyone want to take a guess how long it will be before the US government blocks WikiLeaks? Update: The blocks function outside of the US too. In other words, the US is forcing its views upon the rest of the world once again.

How exactly is Assange, a person I am sure you don't know at a personal level, a "douche?"

Assange is a total douche. His own personal freedom of speech is more important than protecting lives of civilians who are working for the US in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan. I don't have a problem with him releasing information pertaining to soldiers committing war crimes but to endanger civilian lives just because you can makes him just as bad as those he exposes.
