Wikileaks Releases Video of Journalist Killings

pizza_milkshake Re:Video (1671 comments)

Honest question: why suppress a video displaying proper conduct? Like most people who will watch the video, I have no experience in military conduct or law and it is difficult for me to evaluate its contents in a complete context. Although knowing that the video was suppressed and only available due to wikileaks makes me naively suspect that laws of conduct were broken.

ahref=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_datingrel=url2html-21275http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_dating> only works for things up to ~50,000 years old, so it wasn't used for those old rocks. For things older than ~100,000 years folks use ahref=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium-argon_datingrel=url2html-21275http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium-argon_dating>. The applicable time period is based on the half-life of the isotope. Carbon-14 has a half-life of 5730 years while Potassium-40's is 1.248e9 years.
