God Save Julian Assange.

Apparently, it looks like US officials are going to bring spying charges against Assange... I got this from their Facebook page, become a fan!

Additionally, have you tried to go to www.wikileaks.org? Yeah, you CAN'T.

Here is a link to the site: http://www.wikileaks.ch/

Government openness is in our best interest. The more facts that the populous is given, the better kinds of decisions that will be made. When, in a democracy, people are not given information, how can they give an informed opinion for the public opinion polls that our leaders generally use when making some controversial decisions.

For example, had 40% of the country been against the war in Iraq, would we have invaded? Had the public access to more information about the situation at hand, would we have been in favor of military intervention? The answer is "no." And, as a result of this invasion, way to many people died, not only Iraqis, but Americans, British, and many others... Furthermore, we are probably dealing with a much more boisterous Iran as a result (which it looks like, from the leaks, is probably going to be in a world of hurt in the coming years).

Wikileaks shows that nations involved in diplomacy are like high school students; but instead of having clothing from Hollister and Abercrombie, they have nukes.

God save you, Mr. Assange.
