The conundrum being presented here when we discuss that Wikileaks material might endager lives is that we are either opting for supporting deception, lying, disreputable acts, and living – OR – we are willing to die to support truth, integrity, and honor.
These are the two choices presented to us.
If one is willing to live to support disreputable acts, lies, deception – on the part of our government, then how can we even trust our own government to tell us the TRUTH?
The argument has been made that people will die over the truth of these cables (leaked). The reality is…that people have DIED over the deception.
One of the reasons for the 9/11 attacks was that America aided MI5 in over-throwing the leader of a sovereign nation (Iran) with replacing that leader with one friendly to the West – and friendly to Western commercial interests (oil).
The Shah of Iran – whom we installed – was a cruel tyrant who killed and starved his people while we overlooked that as long as the oil flowed.
Our deception resulted in the death of many Iranians. Our deception resulted in 3000 deaths on 9/11. Our deception results today of the deaths of soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan – as well as Iraqi soldiers and citizens as well as Afghani citizens.
We now have to face a situation where truth MAY result in deaths – but it is certain that deception HAS resulted in deaths and will continue to do so.
We have been in a state of war since 1941 – WWII, COLD WAR, KOREA, COLD WAR STILL, VIETNAM, WAR ON DRUGS, GRENADA, IRAQ, WAR ON TERROR, IRAQ & AFGHANISTAN, and now THE WAR ON CITIZENS WHO WANT FREEDOM OF SPEECH and TRUTH.
Truth is the first casualty of war – as the saying goes. As long as we are in a siege mentality – we can justify lying and deception…both abroad and to our own citizens. Isn’t it time that the TRUTH comes out with the help of Julian Assange and Wikileaks so that people everywhere can decide for themselves (including Americans) whether or not there is legitimacy for these wars? Isn’t it time that we decide for OURSELVES if it’s relevant to perpetually be engaging in siege activity?
SUPPORT JULIAN ASSANGE AND WIKILEAKS!
