WikiLeaks secrets lead to dramatic diplomatic crises.

Welcome to the new world crises.

Things aren’t going down to well between Saudi Arabia and Iran and for that matter a number of states in the Western alliance, as WikiLeaks has made good on its promise to reveal embarrassing secrets in its dossier, the outcome having produced a diplomatic nightmare in the Middle East and potentially potent repercussions.

UK Telegraph: The King of Saudi Arabia privately urged the United States to attack Iran to destroy its nuclear weapons programme, according to diplomatic cables leaked by the whistle-blowing website, WikiLeaks.

The first tranche of more than 250,000 classified cables released by the WikiLeaks site says American officials were also told to spy on the United Nations’ leadership and get biometric information on its secretary general Ban Ki-moon.

Which immediately has us wondering how will the world deal with Iran in the future and has the expose given Iran expedient leverage and new found abilities to deflect demand on its own nuclear programs now that it is understood that such measures have perhaps been covert missions linked more to hyperbole than perhaps any real threat?

American diplomats were also asked to compile a profile of Alan Duncan, the homosexual former oil trader who is now the international development minister.

The Americans particularly asked for information on the relationship between Mr Duncan and William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, with whom he used to share a flat, and also Mr Cameron.

    Who’s the asshole? Have not read the report, but if I understand correctly, the VIPs are grumbling because they’ve been outbid by the king and moved to coach, from where presumably the plebes have been moved to other areas of the hospital because their standard wards were needed as private rooms for the displaced VIPs. Perhaps at the end of the day some poor people were rolled out into the street. So what? Somewhere in this model, the king has created jobs, I’m sure.
