Chelsea Manning rejects 'pacifist' label first statement since sentence

In a statement issued to the Guardian, Manning insists that she did not leak hundreds of thousands of US classified documents to WikiLeaks because she was explicitly motivated by pacifism.

Where wars come from

"From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts." -James 4:1-3

More than a bump, essential Truth

We all make peace, or war, starting from within. When we acknowledge our pivotal role in being who we ought to be inside, being true to God and ourselves; we can shine the light of that truth where darkness can't flee fast enough.

Here is a great summary of the problem as I see it, in poetry and song:
