The sad thing is, just 30 years ago anyone pulling off this style of "treason" (with a heavy dose of "blackmail" tossed in for the fun of it) would have been quietly hunted down by all the world's governments and expunged...
. . . the end of the Cold War putting an end to such "politically correct" advantages
All in all, this sort of smug-smartassedness
is little more than some poor little rich-kid acting out, attempting to prove that he is smarter and "superior" to everyone else; doing so by playing to a couple of humankind's "lower" attributes -- our need to gossip and create drama (making mountains from mole hills) along side the "fear" of getting caught for being human... for sharing points of view we'd normally not voice in "Polite Society" as well as the "fear" of actually knowing what others think about us.
While my generation and technically speaking, most of those of the Baby Boomer generation have all been "rebels" of sorts; individuals seeking to break with the iron-shackles of Victorian prudishness and the lies of paternal superiority (a.k.a. white male governing/rule) the children of these boomers, most particularly those born in the 1970's and into the early 90's, seem to equate the idea of Intellectual with acts of being a pompous ass -- a Nerd version of the typical Campus Jock type. The problem is, it only takes one such over-confident and wealthy (as in "resource rich") jerk to bring the whole of human society to its knees; which is what our Rapist friend seems hell-bent in doing, by manipulating the will & whim of other "young" minds out there.
Wikileaks is simply the face of WAR as it is being redefined. Where the physical conflicts between the Islamic & Christian aspects of society in and about the globe reveal how the advanced Tech of the U.S. & NATO/UN elements can be thwarted by cunning and "primitive" ingenuity, the Wiki-mentality is proving to the "Old Guard" that WAR does not/will not require the type of physical manifestations the world has known for the past dozen mellennia or so.
