Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Epitome of Elitist Leftist Arrogant Thought:

You need go no farther than here:


Julian. I am a former British diplomat. In the course of my former duties I helped to coordinate multilateral action against a brutal regime in the Balkans, impose sanctions on a renegade state threatening ethnic cleansing, and negotiate a debt relief programme for an impoverished nation.

None of this would have been possible without the security and secrecy of diplomatic correspondence, and the protection of that correspondence from publication under the laws of the UK and many other liberal and democratic states.

An embassy which cannot securely offer advice or pass messages back to London is an embassy which cannot operate. Diplomacy cannot operate without discretion and the protection of sources. This applies to the UK and the UN as much as the US.

In publishing this massive volume of correspondence, Wikileaks is not highlighting specific cases of wrongdoing but undermining the entire process of diplomacy. If you can publish US cables then you can publish UK telegrams and UN emails.

My question to you is: why should we not hold you personally responsible when next an international crisis goes unresolved because diplomats cannot function.

Julian Assange small

Julian Assange: If you trim the vast editorial letter to the singular question actually asked, I would be happy to give it my attention.

Any thoughts on Mr Assange? I have some, and they're not pleasant.

Mr. Assange should explain, face to face, his opinions and reasons to family members whose murders resulted from his leaks.

NFO: I'm partial to your idea, clearly.

I would suggest that Mr Assange be placed side by side with those leaking info to him. I honestly believe something good will come out of this. If nothing else some better vetting of those with intel crucial to our nat sec.

The charges may be trumped up... but are they to get Assange or to protect him, because he surely needs police protection now that he has PO'd Russia and China.

Strange how he can be invisible and unfindable when he releases US data, then only a day or two after his threats to Russia and China goes out he suddenly gets taken in by the police. Almost like it was arranged or something.
