These are supposed to be diplomatic cables, and allegedly assessments about foreign leaders and governments? If that is the case what is the big deal
and why all the melodrama within the US State Department and other agencies. Governments assess each other all the time, from allies to enemies. That
is all part of diplomacy, and is all part of national security and protecting a county's interests. It could be the US, Russia, or China, it is usual
run-of-the-mill business. Each country leveraging and sizing up the other in the event a confrontation may occur somewhere down the road, whether it
be economic, political, or military. Now, are some nations going to be offended when they learn about the locker room talk about them by diplomats?
They probably are, but as long as there is no talks of coups or other sinister undertakings, what is the big deal?
I hope Wikileaks puts every developed nation on blast about how they conduct business on the international stage, and hopefully, this most recent

that. A fair and equitable release would be in good order, and would alleviate some concerns about the views I hold of Wikileaks being biased. We
shall see how this latest foray into sensitive material affects international relations and current affairs, and hopefully it is much ado about
