Sorry if you don't like the reality. Reality has the interesting property to exist regardless of whether we like it, or even whether we believe in it. The reality is that the political world is not, and cannot be, a single entity ruled by mutual trust and eternal love. The political world is divided into hostile blocks. Even if our block falls down (due to, among other reasons, too much assangeness), the blocks will not disappear, they will reshape. China has enough vitality as far as I can tell. Surely the chikoms would not mind all US secrets being published openly. Surely they can fill in the geopolitical void left by the US (hypothetically speaking).
Of course, there is a flip side to that. The government secret agencies tend to do nasty things behind the veil of secrecy and in that sense it is a good thing to have civil control over them. However, that does not alter one bit the fact that it is impossible to be a successful geopolitical player that reveals **all** her secrets.
J. Assange took an active part in a war. He may not realise that but he did. Now he whines that the party he damaged is trying to destroy him
China alone is going to commission more than 700 new coal power plants by 2020. Sure, in the meantime they are gonna decommission other plants but the overall tendency is obvious. And there is NOTHING you can do about it.
Most likely, the AGW is bullshit. I notice that recently the alarmist changed they mantras from "global warming" to "climate change" -- since there is always some climate change, it gives the alarmists a much safer option for permanent occupation. However, assuming AGW is not bullshit, still you can do NOTHING because a huge part of the world is 1) out of your reach 2) interested predominantly in its own growth.
The Western powers were quite right in the attempt to remove the madmen from power and restore civilization. Regrettably, they acted without firm determination and let the red monsters establish their empire of evil.
Regrettably, the russians have gone back to that silly Cold War mentality. Their own propaganda tells them constantly that they are unique, superior to the others, and surrounded by vile enemies that miss no chance to do harm to russia. Recall that when their submarine Kursk exploded and sank, the first instinctive reaction of the regime and its propaganda was to blame a US sub for colliding with, and thus sinking, Kursk.
Given the fact in the article, shouldn't we conclude the Australian aboriginals are, for instance, neanderthals by origin?
