Think they're great when it's genuine whistle-blowing, that sounds like tittle-tattle.

Not really sure of the public interest, though the public will certainly be interested

Wikileaks A bad move for the World
 
I think so, indiscriminate leaking is not gonna solve but create crisis (sp).
Think they are doing good or bad??

Could not of come at a worse time given whats happening in Korea and Ireland though.

Like the rest of us, governments are going to have to be more careful of what they say and how they say it.

Biggineagle 28-11-2010 08:04 PM

But to make it public Saudi Arabia wants Iran leaders toppled is likely to cause more "problems" than if it was known in house, which I believe it is, and dealt with appropriately. By that I mean its not like those countries wouldnt have a clue.

Biggineagle 28-11-2010 08:07 PM

Sorry didnt notice a thread on this already, pls merge

ollie_porter 28-11-2010 09:40 PM

Cant believe this thread isn't getting more replies?

This is a huge, huge news story.

Ok, some of the stuff isn't exactly new but it's now fact.
Saudi's almost forcing the USA to invade Iran. N.Korea selling nukes to Iran, China waiting for N.Korea to self destruct...

Am I alone thinking all of this is pretty major?
And the fact that world secrets are out.

Poetic justice if you ask me.

It's only a matter of time before another world war IMO!

Heb 7:4 28-11-2010 10:07 PM

It's not really that big. These are hardly top secret files, about 3million people had access to them.

This wikileaks thing could be a ploy

We live in interesting times...

The right to free speech is the corner stone of western civilisation and should be defended at huge cost. However, with freedom comes responsibility and just because something can be published does not mean it must be published.

I think wikileaks are both naive and wreckless to publish all the sensitive information they have on current geo-political events.

The world is complicated beyond quantifying and wikileaks should restrain themselves before they go round sticking our collective penis into the bee hive.

Things seem dangerous at the momment and I don't like it. The US, Europe, Russia and China should all move in unison when it comes to dealing with countries such as Pakistan, Iran, Israel and North Korea. This latest round of wikileaks sensationalism is likely to spread more global mis-trust at best and at worst undermine our freedom and endanger lives.

I agree with this.

250,000 items, I'm sure that The Guardian will cherry pick some of the best ones to make this run for more than a week. Similar to how The Daily Telegraph used the MPs Expenses data.

Wonder who the British Royal is? - got to be Phil or Andrew I suppose.

Steve M 28-11-2010 11:10 PM

Wikileaks on Twitter reporing D notices issued so best bet for getting the full details is to look for yourself or overseas sources as I don't expect UK papers to defy the notices.

Andrew apparently... which is a bit of a shame. I was hoping it would be William so we could put all this royal wedding nonsense to bed.
