My concern with Wikileaks

Wikileaks is a very dangerous organization aiming for anarchy in the world. The creator of the website, Julian Assange, is in hiding because he knows that the information that he is leaking could bring harm or death to him. (He is also avoiding Interpol as two Swedish women have accused him of “rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion”).

Our politicians don't usually discuss assassinating foreign leaders or things of that nature but some of the things released by wikileaks will certainly effect the fragile diplomacy between the United States and most other countries. Specifically the Middle East and various Asian countries.

So far, nothing of great consequence has been released. However, the thought of something said or written out of context or even something said in private with or without exageration casts a bit of anxiety upon me. Perhaps it's not as big a deal as I fear but perhaps it is. Having read the article below, I find that I am not very comfortable with the whole situation. Sure the wikileaks organization feels that it has the right to leak these things but should they?

By the way, what the heck is a "wiki"?

    Look I am not saying everything about all governments are perfect. But there are some things that are potentially down right dangerous to citizens and residents of countries. Blunderbuss broadcasting of alleged ills within governments is one of them.

    I am sure this guy (Julian Assange) will be a "winner" somehow; publicity / money - I hear he is publishing his autobiography. I, for one, is not interested at all.

    I'm always baffled at how people so quickly assume that a man who becomes a target, deserves being put down, or even is a ludicrous person. I have issues with releasing documentation that may harm our citizens or even troops for that matter, however, truth is truth. Secrets are simply lies and if our world is going to become the greatness it was designed to become, secrets must be put into the light. If people die, people die. If I die, I'll be in a better place. If I live, I will make a better place. Regardless, if we could get past this point the finger mentality and simply get honest about our intentions and motives then this world would actually be great. Without honesty this world will always deteriorate to worse and worse conditions for humanity, and apathy will continue to increase as honesty declines. People on this blog obviously are both oblivious and are deceived by their own government in thinking that Julian Assange wants anarchy. You are the target of propaganda, you are the sheep, and you are the deceived that Revelations speaks of when stating the whole world would be deceived. There is no war that has ever been in 'our' best interest.
