Who knows how it'll go for Wikileaks and Assange ultimately.
I can speculate that Wikileaks probably won't stand the test of time in itself..in the eyes of world governments, it's simply too inconvenient and
embarrassing to allow to continue for too long.
Infiltration, followed by corruption scandal, internal squabbling and infighting, damaging revelations of one sort or another, and then a fat bird,
screaming a catchy little operatic number at the top of her lungs.
That would be my guess.
As for Assange..he's too hot to do much about. The entire world and his dog know about Julian Assange, thanks in part to an extremely botched and
rather lazy character assassination attempt, which has backfired very badly for the instigators. Now Assange is very, very public, and support for him
based on principles at stake alone, if not for him personally, has grown exponentially and continues to grow around the world.
They cannot allow this to continue for too long either.
They cannot erase him, an accident or heart attack would be highly suspicious, discrediting his character has failed miserably....what's left?
Well, that's easy. Don't work on Assange, work on the world instead.
The old faithful..the ever trusty and dependable...the downright insidious old stalwart...Ladies and Gentlemen, put your hands together please, i
present to you...Divide and conquer!
They won't have to
bother to destroy Assange...we'll all do that for them..with a gentle nudge in the right direction of course.
That shouldn't be the end though, i'm willing to bet the world likes the idea of knowing exactly what crap their hired representatives are really
getting up to, and would like to continue to know, so groups will spring up all over and pick up where Wikileaks will leave off..and 'they' know it,
and are prepared to turn off the Internet to prevent it too, i reckon.
Hopefully, some day - all governments will be honest and true and made up entirely of people that have our interests as top priority instead of their
own, and whistleblowers and websites like Wikileaks won't be needed at all anymore...but until that happens in reality, we're always going to need
people like Assange and his colleagues, if we want to know what really goes on.
Cheers for your post.
