The front page of our local newspaper, the Tribune of San Luis Obispo (California) had information about the Wikileaks matter today. Here is some of what the international press has reported about it:
11/28/2010The US Diplomatic LeaksA Superpower’s View of the World
By SPIEGEL Staff…Never before in history has a superpower lost control of such vast amounts of such sensitive information.
What does the United States really think of German Chancellor Angela Merkel? Is she a reliable ally? Did she really make an effort to patch up relations with Washington that had been so damaged by her predecessor? At most, it was a half-hearted one…
Never before in history has a superpower lost control of such vast amounts of such sensitive information — data that can help paint a picture of the foundation upon which US foreign policy is built. Never before has the trust America’s partners have in the country been as badly shaken. Now, their own personal views and policy recommendations have been made public — as have America’s true views of them. http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,731580,00.html
Notice also the following, which was revealed via Wikileaks:
11/28/2010Orders from ClintonUS Diplomats Told to Spy on Other Countries at United Nations
US diplomats are alleged to have been asked by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to spy on the diplomats of other countries at the United Nations. That was the purpose of the “National Humint Collection Directive,” which has been seen by SPIEGEL. The document was signed by Clinton and came into force on July 31, 2009. http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,731587,00.html
Now, most people in positions like Mrs. Clinton’s want this, but this will be an embarrassment for her. As well as the USA. Some of the hypocrisy of the USA is now getting a public airing. And that is normally not going to increase respect for the USA.
Of course, many of the items being leaked are perfectly rationale from a certain USA perspective. But the fact that they were leaked must be of tremendous embarrassment to the security leaders of the USA. The Bible warns that about a people for whom God says “I will break the pride of your power” (Leviticus 26:19). And these leaks certainly will break the pride of the USA before many in the world.
Here are some items of prophetic interest from various reports:
• Saudi Arabia put pressure on the US to attack Iran. Other Arab allies also secretly agitated for military action against Tehran…
• How Israel regarded 2010 as a “critical year” for tackling Iran’s alleged quest for nuclear weapons and warned the United States that time is running out to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb…
• Saudi Arabia complained directly to the Iranian foreign minister of Iranian “meddling” in the Middle East. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/nov/29/wikileaks-embassy-cables-key-points
• German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, the Germany’s most beloved politician according to public opinion polls, openly criticizes fellow cabinet member Guido Westerwelle in conversations with US diplomats, and even snitches on him…
• Americans are forced to endure the endless tirades of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarek, who claims to have always known that the Iraq war was the “biggest mistake ever committed” and who advised the Americans to “forget about democracy in Iraq.” Once the US forces depart, Mubarak said, the best way to ensure a peaceful transition is for there to be a military coup. http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,731580,00.html
It may be of interest to note that some of the above items have been mentioned here at COGwriter yet have been officially denied by various political and other leaders. For example, when I reported earlier this year that various Arab leaders supported the idea of Israel attacking Iran, one non-Philadelphian COG group erroneously reported that was not the case. Also, in my article titled Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North? I warned that the current Defense Minister of Germany “may become unpopular for a time” and may have to be put on the sidelines (exiled is the word I used) before he might rise further–these leaks are not being portrayed as flattering to him. In 2007, I warned that the late John Ogwyn’s assessment that the situation in Iraq may end up in civil wars is likely (see LCG’s J. Ogwyn Long Ago Predicted Civil War in Iraq)–and the President of Egypt seems to agree.
More and more world leaders are going to mistrust the USA and decide against cooperating with it as it will be obvious to them that the USA cannot keep a secret. This will not help the USA meet many of its diplomatic goals and will isolate the USA is ways it never thought would happen.
Prophetic events are moving forward. And Wikileaks helps demonstrate how little power that the USA actually has, and that even the power it has is fading.
