Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Why is nobody speculating about the source of the DDOS attack?
The obvious culprit is the US Government, however, that would mean they are operating a botnet. Does nobody find that interesting?
Did they set up the botnet? Do they have their own team of virus/trojan writers?
Did they hijack a botnet?
Are they paying organised crime bosses to do their dirty work?
And again, why is nobody asking any of these questions?
I was wondering the same things.
boy oh boy, does the US come across as dumb just for losing control of all this information.
Real-world people *will* die as a result of his site.
But exposing it all can only cause things to blow up that might otherwise have been handled more diplomatically.
Australia's foreign minister has said the US is to blame for the release of thousands of diplomatic cables on Wikileaks, not its Australian founder, Julian Assange.
Kevin Rudd said the release raised questions about US security.
Mr Rudd said he did not "give a damn" about criticism of him in the cables.
Over 2M diplomatic participants with access to these cables can hardly be considered secret.
They say the best lies are those founded on a truth, and wikileaks seems to be a perfect foundation for someone to manipulate the world.
Absolutely. There are likely motives behind this and the front men publishing it rarely know more than the controlled releases they receive. Who knows what this all means in it's totality and what's been selectively slotted in there for someone to leak.
Leak some truths , see how the World responds and then evolve political transparency to a higher level. It may take the next 2000 years, but let's hope not. This movement is one attempt to take a step forward.
If Assange was Chinese he'd probably be given the Nobel Prize as an advocate for World Peace and be imprisoned in China as an activist.
I'm astounded at how casually people here are taking this
