- Wikileaks ,good , bad or ugly?
WIKILEAKS deserves protection, not threats and attacks.
People ,I believe the MSM is winning on this one.Confusion is the aim , while we are confused we dither and do nothing but argue amoungst ourselves,instead of examining the exidence before us. This is exactly what is happening over wikileaks.Divide and Rule is as old as empire and it still works today.
Anonymous dump sites and bloggers have been around for a while ,and they piss off and scare the establishment no end, but WIKILEAKS TAKES THIS TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
It has PHYSICALLY setup a network of untracable dump sites with GUARANTEED LEGAL PROTECTION ,in Iceland for example.
A Safe Haven For Investigative Journalists Everywhere
WikiLeaks Inspired “New Media Haven” Proposal Passes In Icelandic Parliament
Reykjavik, Iceland; 4:00 UTC, June 16th 2010.
The WikiLeaks advised proposal to build an international “new media haven” in Iceland, with the world’s strongest press and whistleblower protection laws, and a “Nobel” prize for for Freedom of Expression, has unanimously passed the Icelandic Parliament.
Vote results are available at http://www.althingi.is/dba-bin/atkvgr.pl?nnafnak=43014
FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT SLING SH1T AT WIKILEAKS , PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW THIS “NEW MEDIA HAVEN”,OVER SEEN BY ICELANDICS CAN POSSIBLY BE A CIA/MOSSAD/WIKILEAKS FRONT?!
YES I AM SURE THAT THE ESTABLISMENT WILL BE DUMPING AS MUCH FALSE SH1T AND PROPAGANDA AS IT CAN IN THESE SITES AS WELL!!
QUESTION THE DUMPER ,NOT THE DUMPSITE!!!
Live with the WikiLeakable world or shut down the net. It’s your choice
Western political elites obfuscate, lie and bluster – and when the veil of secrecy is lifted, they try to kill the messenger
And as the backlash unfolds – first with deniable attacks on internet service providers hosting WikiLeaks, later with companies like Amazon and eBay and PayPal suddenly “discovering” that their terms and conditions preclude them from offering services to WikiLeaks, and then with the US government attempting to intimidate Columbia students posting updates about WikiLeaks on Facebook – the intolerance of the old order is emerging from the rosy mist in which it has hitherto been obscured. The response has been vicious, co-ordinated and potentially comprehensive, and it contains hard lessons for everyone who cares about democracy and about the future of the net.
ALSO ON THE BLOGGER SITES TOO…. WITH ICH BEING PRO-WIKILEAKS AND WRH BEING ANTI-WIKILEAKS
ICH AND WRH ARE 2 NEWS BLOG SITES I HAVE READ FOR AGES AND HAVE BOTH BEEN GREAT INFORMATION SOURSES .BUT AS SEEN ON “WHATREALLYHAPPENED.COM” THE KNEE JERK RESPONSE FROM SOME ONE WHO NOW SEES THIER INTERNET INCOME DECREASE AS WIKILEAKS IS BECOMING THE FOCUS OF INTERNET SCOOPS AND RELEASES. WIKILEAKS HAS ALSO PHYSICALLY SETUP ANONYMOUS UNTRACABLE DUMPS SITES WITH LEGAL GUARANTEES IN PLACES LIKE ICELAND.
I THINK WRH IS JUST JEALOUS OF THE NEW KID , AND ALSO EMBARRASSED AS WRH HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE 1994 AND HAS NOT MANAGED TO ACHIEVE ANYTHING LIKE WHAT WIKILEAKS HAS ACHIEVED!! WIKILEAKS IS THE FUTURE OF FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY… SO LONG AS IT DOES NOT BECOME A MONOPOLY!!!
WRH JUST BLOWS ITS OWN TRUMPET!!! AND CHASES ITS OWN TAIL(TALE) …AS DEMONSTARTED IN THE FOLLOWING COMMENT FROM MICHAEL RIVERO
The propaganda to “polish this turd” is on warp drive. WikiLeaks has only been around for a little over three years and is the manufactured and heavily promoted darling of the corporate media. But WikiLeaks is a newcomer. Other websites have been around for much longer. WRH traces its history back to 1994 when we blew the whistle on the murder of White House Deputy Council Vincent Foster. The corporate media has continued to pretend we do not exist even though our readership exceeds that of most newspapers and our radio show reaches around the globe on the internet and the entire North American continent on shortwave. Compared to us, WikiLeaks is the skirmish in a war we have been fighting all along.
Now, I am not saying this to whine about the lack of media coverage for WRH, because I don’t really give a damn whether ABCNNBBCBS talks about me or not. But one needs to look at the intense coverage given WikiLeaks while hundreds of other websites and alternative news providers who have been around much longer and broken some really important stories, continue to be ignored.
WikiLeaks is a manufactured front, built over three years at heavy expense in time, money, and political capital. Every cheap public relations trick is being used to convince American web-surfers that Julian Assange is the go-to guy for reality, with Assange already dissing the 9-11 truth movement and reporting Mideast events spun to favor Israel. In desperation, they are even using a tawdry sex scandal to lure people into the WikiMania!
YES ACCORDING TO WRH , ALL THE HARRASSMENT AND THREATS AND ARRESTS ARE JUST FOR ADVERTISING THE WIKILEAKS SITE!!
SO WITH WRH MASSIVE AMOUNT OF READERS , WHY IS IT NOT THE VICTIM OF GOVERNMENT HASSASMENT?…MAYBE WRH IS A MOSSAD FRONT?!!?..OR AFTER ALL THIS TIME THE ESTABLISHMENT SEE WRH AS “KEYBOARD CRUSADERS” OR “ARMCHAIR ACTIVISTS” …BASICALLY A LOT OF TALK AND NO ACTION!!
TYPICAL MODERN AMERICANS , QUOTING RON PAUL AND THE CONSTITUTION ,WHINNING AWAY AND DOING NOTHING ABOUT IT! STOP LIVING IN THE PAST YOU WHINNING AMERICAN PUSSIES AND GET ON THE STREETS AND TAKE YOUR COUNTRY BACK!! THE EUROPEANS ARE SHOWING YOU HOW TO DO IT…AND YOU GUYS HAVE GUNS!?!?!? ….WHY HAVE YOU NOT TAKEN AMERICA BACK YET??
WHY IS WRH QUESTIONING WIKILEAKS?
WELL, WIKILEAKS DID NOT SAY WHAT WRH WANTED TO HEAR!!! BOO-HOO YA BOO SUCKS
YES WRH , WHERE EXPECTING TO READ CONFIDENTIAL(NOT TOP SECRET)MILITARY COMMUNICATIONS ABOUT HOW STUPID THE PUBLIC ARE FOR BELIEVING 911, ABOUT ALL THE FAKE PROPAGANDA ABOUT IRAN AND ABOUT HOW THROUGHLY EVIL ISRAEL IS!!
ARE YOU DELUSIONAL!!! IN BIZZARRO WORLD THIS MIGHT MAKE SENSE , IN THE REAL WORLD IT DOES NOT!!
THESE ARE MILITARY COMMMUNICATIONS AND THE MILITARY BELIEVES ITS OWN DELUSIONAL PROPAGANDA!! SO IT WILL ONLY MENTION IN COMMUNICATIONS ,ARABS BRINGING DOWN THE TWIN TOWERS , IRAN IS SPONCERING TERRORSIM AND BUILDING WMD’S AND ISRAEL IS AS INNOCENT AS NEW DRIVEN SNOW!!
WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU REALLY EXPECT TO FIND?!?!
WHAT THESE LEAKS SHOW US ,IS THE US MILITARY DELUSIONAL MINDSET, AND A LOT OF REAL “COLATERAL DAMAGE”!!
THE ESTABLISHMENT SEEMS VERY GENUINELY CONCERNED ABOUT WIKILEAKS , AND HAS BEEN OUT TO STOP IT,OR DISCREDIT IT, FOR A LONG TIME
REMEMBER THE MILTARY HAS BEEN CONCOCTING A PLAN TO DISCREDIT WIKILEAKS FOR A LONG TIME!!!! IT SEEMS IT IS BEGINNING TO WIN THIS MEDIA WAR
This document is a classifed (SECRET/NOFORN) 32 page U.S. counterintelligence investigation into WikiLeaks.
“The possibility that current employees or moles within DoD or elsewhere in the U.S. government are providing sensitive or classified information to wikileaks.org cannot be ruled out”. It concocts a plan to fatally marginalize the organization. Since WikiLeaks uses “trust as a center of gravity by protecting the anonymity and identity of the insiders, leakers or whisteblowers”, the report recommends “The identification, exposure, termination of employment,criminal prosecution, legal action against current or former insiders, leakers, or whistlblowers could potentially damage or destroy this center of gravity and deter others considering similar actions from using the Wikileaks.org Web site”.
As an odd justificaton for the plan, the report claims that “Several foreign countries including China,Israel, North Kora, Russia, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe have denounced or blocked access to the Wikileaks.org website”.
The report provides further justification by enumerating embarrassing stories broken by WikiLeaks—U.S. equipment expenditure in Iraq, probable U.S. violations of the Cemical Warfare Convention Treaty in Iraq, the battle over the Iraqi town of Fallujah and human rights violations at Guantanmo Bay. Note that the report contains a number of inaccurances, for instance, the claim that WikiLeaks has no editorial control. The report concludes with 13 items of intelligence to be answered about WikiLeaks
THIS IS NOT THE FIRST ATTEMPT TO DISCREDIT WIKILEAKS
IMHO WHAT WE ARE SEEING WITH THE RECENT DUMP ,IS THE US MILITARY/DOD/ZIONIST LOBBY ,MAY HAVE HAD A HAND IN THIS RECENT DUMP(OR MAY NOT) AND ARE USING IT TO DISCREDIT ALL DUMP SITES!!
JULIAN ASSANGE REPLIES TO HIS CRITICS
December 07, 2010 “The Australian” —IN 1958 a young Rupert Murdoch, then owner and editor of Adelaide’s The News, wrote: “In the race between secrecy and truth, it seems inevitable that truth will always win.”
IN REALITY THE TRUTH CAN BE HEARD WHEN IT HAS NO MORE EFFECT. AFTER THE HORSE HAS BOLTED “PANORAMA” ETC. WILL DO A SPECIAL ON IT!! …..SHAME THEY DID, AND SAID, NOTHING WHEN IT WOULD OF EFFECTED THINGS!!
His observation perhaps reflected his father Keith Murdoch’s expose that Australian troops were being needlessly sacrificed by incompetent British commanders on the shores of Gallipoli. The British tried to shut him up but Keith Murdoch would not be silenced and his efforts led to the termination of the disastrous Gallipoli campaign.
Nearly a century later, WikiLeaks is also fearlessly publishing facts that need to be made public.
I grew up in a Queensland country town where people spoke their minds bluntly. They distrusted big government as something that could be corrupted if not watched carefully. The dark days of corruption in the Queensland government before the Fitzgerald inquiry are testimony to what happens when the politicians gag the media from reporting the truth.
These things have stayed with me. WikiLeaks was created around these core values. The idea, conceived in Australia, was to use internet technologies in new ways to report the truth.
WikiLeaks coined a new type of journalism: scientific journalism. We work with other media outlets to bring people the news, but also to prove it is true. Scientific journalism allows you to read a news story, then to click online to see the original document it is based on. That way you can judge for yourself: Is the story true? Did the journalist report it accurately?
Democratic societies need a strong media and WikiLeaks is part of that media. The media helps keep government honest. WikiLeaks has revealed some hard truths about the Iraq and Afghan wars, and broken stories about corporate corruption.
People have said I am anti-war: for the record, I am not. Sometimes nations need to go to war, and there are just wars. But there is nothing more wrong than a government lying to its people about those wars, then asking these same citizens to put their lives and their taxes on the line for those lies. If a war is justified, then tell the truth and the people will decide whether to support it.
If you have read any of the Afghan or Iraq war logs, any of the US embassy cables or any of the stories about the things WikiLeaks has reported, consider how important it is for all media to be able to report these things freely.
WikiLeaks is not the only publisher of the US embassy cables. Other media outlets, including Britain’s The Guardian, The New York Times, El Pais in Spain and Der Spiegel in Germany have published the same redacted cables.
Yet it is WikiLeaks, as the co-ordinator of these other groups, that has copped the most vicious attacks and accusations from the US government and its acolytes. I have been accused of treason, even though I am an Australian, not a US, citizen. There have been dozens of serious calls in the US for me to be “taken out” by US special forces. Sarah Palin says I should be “hunted down like Osama bin Laden”, a Republican bill sits before the US Senate seeking to have me declared a “transnational threat” and disposed of accordingly. An adviser to the Canadian Prime Minister’s office has called on national television for me to be assassinated. An American blogger has called for my 20-year-old son, here in Australia, to be kidnapped and harmed for no other reason than to get at me.
And Australians should observe with no pride the disgraceful pandering to these sentiments by Julia Gillard and her government. The powers of the Australian government appear to be fully at the disposal of the US as to whether to cancel my Australian passport, or to spy on or harass WikiLeaks supporters. The Australian Attorney-General is doing everything he can to help a US investigation clearly directed at framing Australian citizens and shipping them to the US.
Prime Minister Gillard and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have not had a word of criticism for the other media organisations. That is because The Guardian, The New York Times and Der Spiegel are old and large, while WikiLeaks is as yet young and small.
We are the underdogs. The Gillard government is trying to shoot the messenger because it doesn’t want the truth revealed, including information about its own diplomatic and political dealings.
Has there been any response from the Australian government to the numerous public threats of violence against me and other WikiLeaks personnel? One might have thought an Australian prime minister would be defending her citizens against such things, but there have only been wholly unsubstantiated claims of illegality. The Prime Minister and especially the Attorney-General are meant to carry out their duties with dignity and above the fray. Rest assured, these two mean to save their own skins. They will not.
Every time WikiLeaks publishes the truth about abuses committed by US agencies, Australian politicians chant a provably false chorus with the State Department: “You’ll risk lives! National security! You’ll endanger troops!” Then they say there is nothing of importance in what WikiLeaks publishes. It can’t be both. Which is it?
It is neither. WikiLeaks has a four-year publishing history. During that time we have changed whole governments, but not a single person, as far as anyone is aware, has been harmed. But the US, with Australian government connivance, has killed thousands in the past few months alone.
US Secretary of Defence Robert Gates admitted in a letter to the US congress that no sensitive intelligence sources or methods had been compromised by the Afghan war logs disclosure. The Pentagon stated there was no evidence the WikiLeaks reports had led to anyone being harmed in Afghanistan. NATO in Kabul told CNN it couldn’t find a single person who needed protecting. The Australian Department of Defence said the same. No Australian troops or sources have been hurt by anything we have published.
But our publications have been far from unimportant. The US diplomatic cables reveal some startling facts:
► The US asked its diplomats to steal personal human material and information from UN officials and human rights groups, including DNA, fingerprints, iris scans, credit card numbers, internet passwords and ID photos, in violation of international treaties. Presumably Australian UN diplomats may be targeted, too.
► King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia asked the US to attack Iran.
► Officials in Jordan and Bahrain want Iran’s nuclear program stopped by any means available.
► Britain’s Iraq inquiry was fixed to protect “US interests”.
► Sweden is a covert member of NATO and US intelligence sharing is kept from parliament.
► The US is playing hardball to get other countries to take freed detainees from Guantanamo Bay. Barack Obama agreed to meet the Slovenian President only if Slovenia took a prisoner. Our Pacific neighbour Kiribati was offered millions of dollars to accept detainees.
In its landmark ruling in the Pentagon Papers case, the US Supreme Court said “only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government”. The swirling storm around WikiLeaks today reinforces the need to defend the right of all media to reveal the truth.
Julian Assange is the editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks.

AT THE END OF THE DAY ,I DO NOT AGREE WITH EVERYTHING JULIAN ASSANGE SAYS AND BELIEVES ,911 AND THE ILLEGAL WARS FOR EXAMPLE, I CAN ONLY SUPPOSE IT IS THE SAME FOR HIM, I CAN ONLY SUPPOSE ITS THE SAME WITH EVERYONE ON PLANET EARTH!! WE ARE ALL INDIVIDUALS AND UNIQUE , THEREFORE WE WILL ALL HAVE OUR INDIVIDUALLY, UNIQUE VIEW POINTS! WHY DOES JULIAN HOLD THESE OPINIONS ,WELL JULIAN ASSANGE IS A “GEEK” NOT A CONSPIRACY THEORIST. MOST GEEKS I WORK WITH ARE MORE INTO “SUBVERSION”(HACKING) AND WORKING AROUND BLOCKAGES OR DOING THE TECHNICALLY IMPOSSIBLE, RATHER THAN RANTING ABOUT OR INVESTIGATING CONSPIRACY THEORIES.
BUT A GEEK CREATED ANONYMOUS DUMP SITE AVAILABLE FOR ALL IS A VERY GOOD THING TO HAVE , AND WE NEED MORE!! IT WAS GEEKS THAT GAVE US THE INTERNET , THATS WHY BIG GOVERNMENT AND BIG BUSINESS HATE IT!!
Patriot Act for Internet ahead?
As a result of WikiLeaks, the Obama Administration may introduce a new bill that would allow government officials the ability to spy on Americans through the internet. Meanwhile, an army of hackers rally behind WikiLeaks by shutting down MasterCard and PayPal because they stopped all payments to WikiLeaks. Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen says we could see massive government surveillance of our personal computers, phones and surveillance of our internet activities
WELL DONE!!! TO THOSE HACKING GEEKS
WIKILEAKS MUST AND WILL SURVIVE , THE GOVERNMENT IS FIGHTING ANOTHER WAR IT CANNOT WIN , IF THEY WANT TO STOP THE INTERNET AND WIKILEAKS. THE MORE THEY TRY THE MORE THEY SHOW THIER TRUE AUTHORITARIAN COLOURS ,THE MORE OBVIOUS IT BECOMES HOW POWERLESS THEY ARE TO STOP IT!!!! …MORE ROPE MR.POLITION?
Internet tops TV viewing in Canada: Ipsos poll
For the first time ever, Canadians are spending more time surfing the web than they are watching television, a new poll shows.
The fight for free access to information is being played out to an ever greater extent on the Internet. The emerging general trend is that a growing number of countries are attemptimg to tighten their control of the Net, but at the same time, increasingly inventive netizens demonstrate mutual solidarity by mobilizing when necessary.
The Internet: a space for information-sharing and mobilizing
In authoritarian countries in which the traditional media are state-controlled, the Internet offers a unique space for discussion and information-sharing, and has become an ever more important engine for protest and mobilization. The Internet is the crucible in which repressed civil societies can revive and develop.
In November 2007, “Father of the Internet” Vint Cerf stated that he sees Government-led control of the Internet failing due to private ownership.

BitTorrent Based DNS To Counter US Domain Seizures
The domain seizures by the United States authorities in recent days and upcoming legislation that could make similar takeovers even easier in the future, have inspired a group of enthusiasts to come up with a new, decentralized and BitTorrent-powered DNS system. This system will exchange DNS information through peer-to-peer transfers and will work with a new .p2p domain extension.
In a direct response to the domain seizures by US authorities during the last few days, a group of established enthusiasts have started working on a DNS system that can’t be touched by any governmental institution
To limit the power governments have over domain names, a group of enthusiasts has started working on a revolutionary system that can not be influenced by a government institution, or taken down by pulling the plug on a central server. Instead, it is distributed by the people, with help from a BitTorrent-based application that people install on their computer.
According to the project’s website, the goal is to “create an application that runs as a service and hooks into the hosts DNS system to catch all requests to the .p2p TLD while passing all other request cleanly through. Requests for the .p2p TLD will be redirected to a locally hosted DNS database.”
“By creating a .p2p TLD that is totally decentralized and that does not rely on ICANN or any ISP’s DNS service, and by having this application mimic force-encrypted BitTorrent traffic, there will be a way to start combating DNS level based censoring like the new US proposals as well as those systems in use in countries around the world including China and Iran amongst others.”
The Dot-P2P project was literally started a few days ago, but already the developers are making great progress. It is expected that a beta version of the client can be released relatively shortly, a team member assured TorrentFreak.
The project has been embraced by many familiar names in the P2P-community. Former Pirate Bay spokesman Peter Sunde is among them, and the people from EZTV have been promoting it as well.
THANKS TO GEEKS THE WORLD WILL BE SAFE AND UNCENCORD AGAIN. BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE ,HAVE YOU HUGGED A GEEK TODAY? GO ON MAKE THIER DAY 😉
BUT WIKILEAKS CANNOT BECOME A MONOPOLY!!
THIS WOULD BE VERY DANGEROUS, BUT AS SHOWN IN THE ICELAND INCIDENT ,WIKILEAKS HAS NO INTENTION OF BECOMING A MONOPOLY , ITS IS TRYING TO SPREAD ITS MODEL TO OTHER PLACES AND NATIONS.
THIS IS PROBABLY THE REASON WHY THE ANTI-WIKILEAKS CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN STEPPED UP BY THE MSM. THEY WANT IT DISCREDITED SO IT DOES NOT SPREAD!!
BUT THIS WHOLE THING MIGHT JUST BACKFIRE!! REMEMBER THE OLD SAYING “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BAD ADVERTISING, PRINT AND BE DAMNED ,JUST MAKE SURE TO SPELL THE NAME RIGHT!!”

Supporters Foil Attempts to Shut Down WikiLeaks
US Efforts to Censor Whistleblower Meet With Failure
by Jason Ditz, December 08, 2010
With self-described “patriot” hackers trying to shut down the site in the hours before the most recent series of leaks even started, WikiLeaks has been facing a solid 10 days of efforts both official and unofficial to silence them, and open calls to assassinate the site’s operators.
But 10 days later the site is not only surviving, but thriving. Having been abandoned by Amazon.com the site relocated to OVH, and that host is eagerly resisiting French government efforts to oust WikiLeaks from their server.
Even if they eventually succeeded, WikiLeaks has had an outpouring of support leading to hundreds if not thousands of mirrors cropping up. WikiLeaks.Antiwar.com automatically redirects users to the most efficient and up-to-date website based on their current connection.
Efforts to keep the site from fundraising have led to an outpouring of support from other sources, including fledging payment provider Flattr, while the groups have moved against the whistleblower have seen major damage to their credibility, Amazon.com has faced a growing call for boycotts, while MasterCard has seen such bad will that hackers actually attacked their website earlier today.
Sen, Joe Lieberman (I – CT) may have seen some early success in his attempts to censor WikiLeaks, but his increasingly shrill calls to silence anything related to the site (including the New York Times) is becoming the butt of jokes. The facts are clear – efforts to shut down WikiLeaks or other dissident websites may be popular with US officials, but censoring a worldwide information network is a lot harder than they expected.
IF “ISRAEL FIRSTER” JOE LIEBERMAN IS DESPERATELY TRYING TO GET WIKILEAKS SHUTDOWN ,THEN ITS PROBABLY NOT BEING RUN BY MOSSAD!!

Free Julian Assange! Hands off WikiLeaks!
The Arrest of Julian Assange
Truth in Chains
By CHRIS FLOYD
December 07, 2010 — ‘Counterpunch” — London. –Well, they got him at last. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the target of several of the world’s most powerful governments, turned himself into British authorities today and is now at the mercy of state authorities who have already shown their wolfish – and lawless – desire to destroy him and his organization.
It has been, by any standard, an extraordinary campaign of vilification and persecution, wholly comparable to the kind of treatment doled out to dissidents in China or Burma. Lest we forget, WikiLeaks is a journalistic outlet – just like The New York Times, the Guardian and Der Spiegel, all of whom are even now publishing the very same material – leaked classified documents — available on WikiLeaks. The website is also a journalistic outlet just like CNN, ABC, CBS, Fox and other mainstream media venues, where we have seen an endless parade of officials – and journalists! – calling for Assange to be prosecuted or killed outright. Every argument being made for shutting down WikiLeaks can – and doubtless will – be used against any journalistic enterprise that publishes material that powerful people do not like.
The Wikileaks sex files:
How two one-night stands sparked a worldwide hunt for Julian Assange
By Richard Pendlebury
Assange, believed to be in hiding in England, faces a criminal prosecution and possibly jail. Last night, a European Arrest Warrant was given by Interpol to Scotland Yard.
The Stockholm police want to question him regarding the possible rape of a woman and separate allegations from another Swedish admirer, with whom he was having a concurrent fling. But there remains a huge question mark over the evidence. Many people believe that the 39-year-old Australian-born whistleblower is the victim of a U.S. government dirty tricks campaign.
They argue that the whole squalid affair is a sexfalla, which translates loosely from the Swedish as a ‘honeytrap’.
One thing is clear, though: Sweden’s complex rape laws are central to the story.
Wikileaks and the Diplomacy of Secrecy
HERE IS MY SUGGESTED EASY SOLUTION TO OUR CURRENT PROBLEMS. GET RID OF THE ELECTED DICTATORS AND IMPOSE DIRECT TRUE DEMOCRACY…ITS WHAT SAVED ICELAND , AND SWITZERLAND HAS BEEN A DIRECT DEMOCRACY SINCE 1840’S , ITS NEVER BEEN AT WAR! IT DOES NOT EVEN HAVE AN ARMY!! ITS ALSO NOT INVOLVED IN ILLEGAL WARS OR BAILING OUT FRAUDULENT BANKERS….
THE TRUTH CAN HANDLE AWKWARD QUESTIONS
ITS LIES THAT NEED THREATS AND LAWS TO SURVIVE!!
VIOLENCE BREEDS VIOLENCE
EDUCATION BREEDS UNDERSTANDING
THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
THE TRUTH IS ,YOU ALWAYS WHERE FREE , YOU JUST HAD TO REALISE IT!!
