Good morning, Netizens…
LONDON – Police say Julian Assange, WikiLeaks founder has surrendered to British police as part of a Swedish sex-crimes investigation, the latest blow to the secret-spilling website that faces legal, financial and security challenges.
Assange was arrested at 9:30 a.m. (930 GMT) Tuesday and was due to appear at Westminster Magistrate’s Court later today. Assange has been hiding out at an undisclosed location in Great Britain since WikiLeaks began publishing hundreds of U.S. diplomatic cables on the Internet last week.
Good morning again, Netizens…
As I was saying to one of my friends last evening, I am still uncertain what to make of the information released thus far by Assange’s WikiLeaks. However, after careful consideration of everything I have read (and I have read a substantial amount of what has already been posted) I am still undecided about the relative worth of what I have read. Some of it, such as proposed in this cartoon from David Horsey, is purely salacious, hilarious if true and perhaps even accurate. If we only knew what is true and what is not! Then we wouldn’t need anyone like Solomon to determine the facts for us, now would we?
As usual, David Horsey has as many points in his favor as he has detractors. It somehow stands to reason that, given the chaos and pandemonium we sometimes see in our own so-called “modern” society, surely some of that is echoed between diplomats and members of other governments. That, by itself, adds some credence to the cartoon this morning.
In Horsey’s examination of International Relations, as suggested by WikiLeaks, it does seem that the entire world of diplomacy is eagerly screwing one another, some more than others. Let’s take Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, for example. His buxom nurse that travels everywhere with him is best-described as curious, but Gaddafi has already been down that road before in the public eye without the aid of WikiLeaks. It is common knowledge he has an exclusive cadre of female all-virgin bodyguards who must wear lipstick, nail varnish and be masters of hand-to-hand combat. All his guards have taken an oath to surrender their lives for his, if need be, as at least one has. Sometimes when he travels to other foreign countries, he has been known to set up a Bedouin tent wherever he deems it necessary. But there is always that voluptuous nurse.
As for the rest, you can believe what you want about foreign diplomacy. The deeper you look, the more Julian Assange’s latest assertions seem to be factual. One, however, never knows, do we?
