Wikileaks

For those who haven't heard of it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Sta ... ables_leak

(lols, wiki'ing the wikileak)

What do you guys make of this whole situation? For me, I kind of recognize how it'll raise superficial tensions, but it's also pretty amusing to me because if some of these more serious things were really happening, then their perpetrators obviously were asking for the worst. (if any of that shit makes sense)

As you said, raising superficial tensions, that's pretty much the whole concept. And, I'll have you know, pretty much of what 'leaked' was already known to every state's intelligence service ( or at least the states that were involved in the events whose true story 'leaked' )

USA gonna blame yet another innocent country for this leak, cause a major war, bla bla bla...USA foreign policy pattern repeating itself

This just might not end the right way for them, if they try to pick on Iran or Korea.

I'm not even going to comment, other than to point out that Iran and North Korea are hardly "innocent."

You're more retarded than I thought.

This is pretty off topic but how would you classify a country that removed a democratically elected leader and installed an autocrat in his place?

See Operation Ajax.

It makes you think a bit differently about how Iran has turned out.

They're not going to blame a country for it. The most they're going to do is attempt to place all the focus on Assange and then mount a smear campaign against him and Wikileaks. The other publishers probably wont even get a mention. If something this bad happens, you try to shift the focus. There's not much else you can do initially without raising the ire of the public. However, there are a lot of things people will turn a blind eye to if the party that is being subjected to it has been vilified enough in the media.

Here's some of what I'm talking about. from the wiki article: "U.S. Congressman Peter T. King called for WikiLeaks to be designated as a terrorist organization."

Anyway, apart from that, I think it's important to remember that neither wikileaks or Assange are important here. The leaked information is what is really important, the rest is nonsensical rubbish spouted by people who would rather not be scrutinised so closely.

Just because the whole world doesn't listen to every word your government say or demands, doesn't make a country "hardly "innocent" ".

Go brainwash yourself some more, Magyk. I thought you were better than that. Guess I thought wrong. :D
