WikiLeaks: A battle not the war

WikiLeaks is a battle and not the war. Fought over information, it's an ageless war between those with power and those without. Clearly those charlatans masquerading as statesmen and the clowns dressed as legislators in the Washington Circus would dearly love to put the boots to those who expose them. WikiLeaks contained little new about our widely mistrusted misleaders and the damage was limited to some ruffled feathers and bruised egos. The Leaks weren't news; for who didn't know that that Italian is a philandering buffoon, that the Afghanistan crowd rivals the South Vietnamese in corruption and various venality's, or that we are extending to Pakistan the same largess we gave to Cambodia? Of course Putin rose to become Czar of the Russian Thugocracy from the bloody cellars of the Lubyanka and remains murderous. As for those whose trust in Saudi Arabia's honesty was shattered, oh well. Aside from reducing catty remarks in diplomatic cocktail parties, the Leaks will have no discernible consequence in 6 months; except for one thing. They do provide a great service to those in public disservice who wish to CYA. It is the monkeys in the Washington Circus who will benefit from the Leaks by way of new laws to shield their incompetence and or corruption. The public loses another battle in the war for the information it needs to govern the Republic.

Went to Amherst College where I majored in political science and fine art. I found this to be a good foundation for the citizen editorial cartoon work I currently do, although far from enough. My work in what is called the mental health field with (more...)
