The British government are consummate professionals, when it comes to garnering public distrust. Well done, Mr Cameron, you sure know how to prove that you are untrustworthy. Pure genius.

I'm a thirty three year old guy who's been awakened to the corruption in the world and especially here in the UK. This is just one more example of the rich and powerful protecting their interests, and that of their corporate friends at the expense of what is right for the people and our country. Being on the revolution… Sure you picked that up prism program? Sure google will be happy to hand over my personal details.

There are billions of people on this planet. There is no way to get them to do something all together. We don't have that kind of technology to spread information that fast.

I saw a leak from Snowdon once. Rain was pouring down the mountainside!

They arrested the Brazilian journalist, under anti-terrorism laws? Journalism=terrorism? Truth=terrorism? They didn't even question the guy about terrorism. To people like David Cameron, Edward Snowden is a truth terrorist. And it seems that Cameron is willing to betray the British public, on order to please his political masters in Washington DC. I hope that Greenwald has some really damaging revelations up his sleeve.

You mean the woman that said "We are going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." or "I'm not going to have some reporters pawing through our papers. We are the president."?

I suppose they said to them "Do you want to do this the easy way or the hard way" Perhaps they were threatening to put them out of business or close them down. I think they should have called their bluff.

The UK Political Criminals may have won this battle BUT its is time to roll out the guillotines for a Robespierre Reign of terror.

This was later called the French Revolution ..the foundation of the American Constitution

The thing is I don't suppose that the hard discs they destroyed were really the snowdon files but in allowing them to destroy them they have promised not to publish any more of snowdon's revelations. It is a sad fact but in Great Britain the Prime minister has the power to alter any act of parliament in any way he likes without the consent of parliament. So Britain is really now a dictatorship in all but name.

Quick revolutions take place only where it is beneficial to the U.S. authorities and is actively working CIA – with fake groups "angry citizens". If that does not correspond to the interests of the United States – you will encounter a powerful counter-revolution.

several millions of workers in the U.S. are fed 1.2 billion Indians, 1.4 Muslims, 1.5 Chinese and etc?

it only takes those that tell these millions and billions what to do. Or those that control the facilities that these people need to be able to work, like electricity, water, transportation… it takes 8% to change the world, look it up.

"Muslims are currently occupying Israel, Greek Anatolia and in history they invaded and occupied Europe on top of the two mentioned places for 792 years." For how many centuries did Europe invade and occupy what is now 'Israel,' including Africa and Asia? Are you ignorant of history or just playing double standards? And Muslims did not invade Europe, they fought to defend against European aggression upon the world, by finally driving them out of Africa and Asia…continued…

…Continued…However the Europeans, such as the Romans and Byzantines would not stop in their pursuit to once again colonize the peoples of Africa and Asia, so the newly converted people with the religion of Islam fought to the death and enjoyed martyrdom to enter directly into paradise in defending their land against the European invaders who persecuted faith…continued…

…Continued…Since the beginning of time, if a country was an aggressor in a war, the victim country had every right to defeat and absorb the aggressor country. If this were not true and fair, then no country would exist today. Countries exist with their present borders because they fought for them, those who lost wars, lost land…continued…

User100606
Guest

…Continued…In some cases a country would have to give up some of it's lands because it did not treat fairly the people on the land it conquered and defeated, and the people rebelled successfully or engaged in successful nonviolent movements such as civil disobedience such as large-scale refusal to work, leading to the occupying country to allow the independence of those lands…continued…

…Continued…"If that does not correspond to the interests of the United States – you will encounter a powerful counter-revolution." The only revolution or counter-revolution that matters is a genuine revolution of the people. The counter-revolution in Egypt was a result of propaganda by news outlets. But the new counter-revolution against the military coup is attracting people across the spectrum, because lies need more lies to cover them up when exposed, like the govt's '9/11 debunkers.'

User100606

…Continued…All recent and past revolution in the modern age are proving that government whether democratic or non-democratic, inevitably becomes a mere tool of the banking elite of the world, which in turn uses intelligence agencies to plot coups, assassinations, revolutions, public agitation, news media propaganda, control and profit from the international illegal drug trade, etc. for them. Senior Intelligence agents are often directly related to the banking elite families. Do you know this

We're talking about the "fast" revolution?
The revolution of which you speak – a "classical revolution": long- bloody show with a civil war and an unknown ending.

Knowledge is power. Look at how facebook helped organize millions of people in a matter of minutes to bring Egypt to a standstill to overthrow the corrupt and oppressive regime of Hosni Mubarak, it took them 30 years to figure it out. However now they are lashing out at each new leader, this is similar to the French, American, Russian, and Chinese revolutions. All these revolutions had many leaders in power one by one before stability arose, because of all the propaganda and factionalism.

If the United States it would not be profitable – Facebook shut off at the same moment, and all the activists of the revolution, who are campaigning through social networks at the same time would be arrested. You should not be naive.

User100606

Facebook is not the only social network, today there are many many competing social networks, not only this, through text messages and email people are able to communicate instantly using their mobile phone. And even if electricity was shut off still they could survive in the mountains or jungles, as many rebels have done in history successfully. The American empire despite dropping more bombs on Vietnam than during the entire course of world war 2, still lost and left in defeat.

User100606

…Continued…However we are not talking about classical revolution are we? We are talking about fast revolutions. And one important thing you are forgetting by imagining the shut down of facebook and arrest of the agitators, is the simple fact that in successful fast revolutions it is the working-class of the country which through simply refusing to work even a segment of it, forces the rest of the workers also to willingly or unwillingly stay away from going to work…continued…

User100606

…Continued…This (workers mass-strikes), has worked even where the goal was not a large-scale revolution but to force the government or corporation to increase salaries of the workers. Today we live in a global society, so a large-scale workers revolution in one country could trigger revolutions in other countries, just as there are also strikes by students forcing universities to reduce cost of tuition. THE PEOPLE have the power to improve their conditions in a matter of days through strikes
