UN Human Rights Commissioner: 'This is truly' a 'cyber war'


www.rawstory.com

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights is dismayed by reports that companies are being leaned on to discontinue financial and internet services for WikiLeaks, a secrets website in the process of releasing more than 250,000 US State Department cables.

"I am concerned about reports of pressure exerted on private companies including banks, credit card companies and internet service providers to close down credit lines for donations to WikiLeaks as well as to stop hosting the website or its meta sites," Navi Pillay said on Thursday, the eve of International Human Rights Day.

Hmm, will this carry over into even a human rights issue next?

There is indeed a war of sorts going on, and my feeling is that this whole wiki-leaks thing has had underpinnings as well as a story which underscores the TRUE nature of why this has generated so much attention: This is actually a war between TPTB and the MASSES.

And these cables, regardless of what their intended purposes may or may not be, have served to act as a 'catalyst' of sorts, to awaken MUCH more people to the fact that they are being lied to, manipulated, and USED by those in power, like cattle. And the masses are beginning to take notice and rise up, on a global scale.

There is a war indeed, but it stretches FAR beyond cyberland---This is a war of the Elite few, versus the unlimited many.

This is the same UN "Human Rights" Commissioner who skipped the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony for jailed laureate Liu Xiaobo? The one who has made a mockery of her office by bowing to pressure from China, because it embarrassed them, to ignore the single biggest human rights event of the year?

Fail.

If she was truly concerned about pressure being exerted, then maybe she should comment on the massive illegal DDOS attacks being mounted against legitimate businesses.

More Fail.

Interesting that there is no concern for the conduct exposed in the cables....

... only that they are being 'exposed' and 'companies' (read corporations) are being subjected to repercussions for obliging the government (read corporations) in trying their best to make the revelations both impossible and illegal.

I am convinced that this "diplomatic" conduct is the norm... and they know they are next.... espcially at the mothership of all diplomacy... the UN.

When the true character of the "leadership" can no longer be questioned or revealed.... it is then that we must prepare for the upcoming blow to governance by consent and the revelation that 'consent' has little or nothing to do with thier power to influence our lives.
