I at first was among the skeptics of wikileaks. I was highly critical of all the documents that were being released and I cried for heresy. When
wikileaks released documents about Iran and Russia I thought that wikileaks was working with the US government to try to expose the other governments
and to help Israel declare war on Iran.
Recent actions by the British government and reactions by the establishment media like the New York Times ( that question whether if Julian Assange is
a spy and isn't operating as a journalist and is doing espionage, and that he should be prosecuted show that how much of a threat to the rest of the
world governments that he is. He's exposed the Iranian government numerous times but they've also exposed the US government with their war plans
against the Iran government for "regime change" and preventive war. Wikileaks has proven that the US government is manipulating politics in Lebanon.
Wikleaks has shown that relationships with Russia are tense. He's shown that Pakistan is working with the Taliban when we're really supposed to be
fighting them. He also has shown that Saudi leaders pressured the US government to war with Iran in the 1980s. He's also helped show us that the
Afghanistan war hasn't been going all that well either.
I think what Julian Assange has helped show us is that evil will always lurk under the surface even though there seems to be none. He has been trying
to with his leaks show that there is still evil in the rest of the world and that states and other actors don't always do things that we would like
them to do, and that the world is controlled by a powerful elite that acts as if it were unrepresentative of the people. Julian Assange is the real
deal... he's confirmed what we have already known and he's shed light where there was no previous light in certain things before, and has really
helped out a lot. Now, will you just sit there and let him be the only one that tries to push for more open transparency or will you just go back to
NOTE TO ATS STAFF: I AM NOT ADVOCATING FOR ADVOCACY, OR ANYTHING LIKE A PROTEST OR AN ORGANIZATION ON THIS FORUM, BY RESISTANCE- I AM TALKING ABOUT
RESISTANCE ON AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL AND BY NON-VIOLENT MEANS- I BELIEVE WIKILEAKS HAS SOUNDED THE CALL AND WE SHOULD TREAD CAREFULLY.
