If all these big countries dont like wikileaks, just like America... why is it still up? it would be hacked.. shut down.. and taken off...
am i the only one who thinks they want it to be running?
or is there something someones isn't telling me?
I don't think anyone is capable of shutting Wikileaks down. They have servers all over the world with encryption and no doubt lots and lots of back-up directories.
I am pretty sure Assange spent quite a few years ensuring that his networks were completely secure before establishing Wikileaks.
I am no expert but from what I have read that pretty much sums up why no one has been able to stop him.
Read up about him.

its still not the same thing. being diplomatic is different from say selling computers. When you forge bonds with your clients no company in the world would admit to making a mistake, any company in the world that would work like that wont have clients, shareholders nor would it get elected. You simply would fail.

So far this is of the greatest concern to me. What is the US doing collecting fingerprints, iris scans, DNA on politicians worldwide??????? It is totally outrageous and sounds quite sinister. WHAT is the purpose behind this?edit on 28-11-2010 by wcitizen because: (no reason given)
Well, in reference to my last post, I think you've lost it, geezer.
Don;tforget theIsraelis used false Ausise passports in the murder in Dubai...this Assange is definitely notany sort of Aussie that I ever met!
More than 250,000 classified State Department reports made public on Sunday reveal that China was urged to stop shipments through Beijing of missiles from North Korea to Iran, and that Saudi Arabia's monarch urged the United States to attack Iran's nuclear facilities.
The Obama administration sought to minimize the diplomatic fallout from the disclosures on the Internet site WikiLeaks that provide a vivid inside look at U.S. diplomatic and intelligence reports, some as recent as February.

Dumbest thing I've ever read on here. Do some research before spouting nonsense.

How much do you think they were trying to black mail the goverment for. Millions$$$$$
You know what the didn't pay.
You know why?
Because they would have released even if they got there ransom.
There is a large difference between suspecting something and actually having proof. Plus, this convinces the unwashed masses that our government isn't full of rainbows and ponies.

Wikileaks has not say anything that we already have either suspected or came to conclusions of it, either on our own or here while engage in discussions in ATS, no surprises to me, at least no yet. . .

He issued a statement saying that he disregards the leak and thinks it was orchestrated to be leaked by the US purposely in order to instigate more problems over there. But I wonder what he's really thinking.
