If every nation conducted diplomacy will full honesty, it would be difficult to have diplomatic relations favorable for you, perhaps difficult to have relations whatsoever. See the Soviet Union and Nikita Khrushchev for an example of cunning deceit to the United Nations, to Cuba, to the United States. See the United States and the Soviet Union solving the Cuban Missile Crisis.

    You are a funny person....You might want to refrain from this type of personal attack in the future. You may do it to someone who doesn't have such a good sense of humor.

    More like a provocation from the disinformation office of the Pentagon.

    WikiLeaks row: China wants Korean reunification, officials confirm

    Chinese officials speak after Guardian US embassy cables reveal Beijing is leaning towards acceptance of reunification under Seoul's control

    Simon Tisdall guardian.co.uk,
    Tuesday 30 November 2010

    China supports the "independent and peaceful reunification of the Korean peninsula in the long term" and cannot afford to give the North Korean regime the impression it has a blank cheque to act any way it wants, Chinese officials based in Europe said today.

    The officials, who asked not to be identified, spoke after the Guardian reported that senior figures in Beijing, exasperated with North Korea acting like a "spoiled child", had told South Korean counterparts China was leaning towards acceptance of reunification under Seoul's control.

    China's moves to distance itself from the North Korean regime were revealed in the latest tranche of leaked US embassy cables obtained by WikiLeaks and published yesterday by the Guardian and four international newspapers.

    Julian Assange says WikiLeaks wants to expose China and Russia as much as US

    In interview, Assange denies US focus and says WikiLeaks can be force for opening up closed countries like China and Russia

    Jo Adetunji guardian.co.uk, Thursday 2 December 2010

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange wanted to expose China's and Russia's secrets as much as those of the US, and believes Hillary Clinton should resign if she ordered diplomats to engage in espionage.

    this is a very detailed account of the two women and their charges against Assanges. It sounds incredibly bogus to me.

    007's life?

    Julian Assange wined and dined at US Embassy
    Julian Assange was a guest at a US Embassy cocktail party less than a year ago.

    To the United States, Julian Assange may now be Public Enemy Number One. Some American politicians have even called for his execution.

    But less than a year ago, the founder of WikiLeaks was officially entertained at a US Embassy cocktail party by one of the very diplomats whose secrets he would soon spill to the world.

    At the reception, held at the US ambassador's residence in Reykjavik, Iceland, Mr Assange chatted with Sam Watson, the embassy's deputy chief of mission.
