Cablegate: The Leaked Diplomatic Cables…

I have downloaded the diplomatic cables that Wikileaks has posted and have spent hours reading them. The word appalling is not strong enough…

As long as the Wikileaks site survives the attacks it is getting, you can receive the data here at the link above. I understand that news agencies all over the East are planning on posting the information themselves. So killing the messenger is too late…

The Eastern and now Western press is tearing them apart and the articles are flying about all the things that have been said…

NYT EXPLAINS: THE DECISION TO PUBLISH...

Now I see the western press has made some hard decisions and put there lives on the line over this. To be honest I am proud of them for doing this…

As the New York Times says: But the more important reason to publish these articles is that the cables tell the unvarnished story of how the government makes its biggest decisions, the decisions that cost the country most heavily in lives and money. They shed light on the motivations — and, in some cases, duplicity — of allies on the receiving end of American courtship and foreign aid. They illuminate the diplomacy surrounding two current wars and several countries, like Pakistan and Yemen, where American military involvement is growing. As daunting as it is to publish such material over official objections, it would be presumptuous to conclude that Americans have no right to know what is being done in their name. Read More >>>

In an event that is no less than a political meltdown for United States foreign policy, reporting on 251,287 leaked American diplomatic cables, many classified as secret or confidential, will be published this Monday in Germany by SPIEGEL and SPIEGEL ONLINE. Read More >>>

My grandma would have said to me several times in my life as I grew up: Never say something behind someones back that you would never say to their face. Only cowards do such things!

Looks like America got caught saying a lot of things behind our backs…

Windows to Russia!

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
