I thoroughly enjoyed "Day of the Doctor". Best not say to much about what happens. Spoilers and whatnot!

they are not, all U.S. bases in the UK are MOD property. They are only leased to the United States. UK law still takes precedence. Now members of the US military are covered by SOFA (Status Of Forces Agreement) which means if they commit a crime in the UK it is tried by the military judicial system!
Well, the post that you originally responded to by me might have something to do with that. Which by the way was a comment on other posts throughout the thread alluding to such.
Suspect away my friend. So I tend to write things quickly and not proofread. Usually because I'm to busy and can't be asked. Even with the spelling errors, did you still understand what word I was going for?
Now that you seem to have digressed into light ad hominem attacks by picking out minutiae. I would like to ask. If you are so superior, why do you keep responding?
Different people find different things funny, you obviously don't and I respect that. I would also like to point out that I would find it just as funny when whoever was responsible is caught.
Bradley Manning is a scapegoat for an insecure military. The big issue with Manning is that he is in the military, he signed his rights away (pretty much). If he was a civvy I reckon they would have a much harder time trying to do what they are doing.
Also, what he is supposed to have done is completely different, he didn't deface some website. He leaked classified documents when he had a sworn duty to protect them, now, what Manning did wasn't morally wrong (my opinion considering content) he did break the law and he should get his day in court like anyone else.
But this is beside the point and not on subject...
The whole situation is just silly. So far they haven't even charged the kid and the more it goes on the more it sounds like they are desperate to find anyone...
This is about revenge, not justice. Shame the people in authority (lol) seem hellbent on making themselves look even more like bufoons!
Is a shame this kids life may be ruined by this, but he played the game and must have known the risks. I'll be very surprised if they get a legitimate conviction out of this.
"Well Mr and Miss Anarchist, if we had out and out anarchy and total lack of control there'd be nothing to stop me coming round your house with a shotgun and painting your walls a nice new shade of claret!"
Except, that you have to know who they are first! Also, they would have the chance to be waiting for you with a shotgun and take you out first!
