I'm particularly interested in the diplomatic conversation during wars in the indian sub-continent.

1) Indo-Pakistani War of 1947
2) Indo-China war of 1962
3) Indo-Pakistani War of 1965
4) Indo-Pakistani War of 1971
5) Indo-Pakistani War of 1999

So far the very important conversations from 47, 62, 65 and 71 cables are not there on the wikileaks website. Does anyone know whether wikileaks has it or whether they have kept these for last?

I think it was widely agreed to not bring WL here.

Mainly because it puts in jeopardy lives of good men and women.

Doc,

Virtually everything in those archives is stuff that has been available in one form or another perfectly legally for years. In keeping with the 'every waking moment is an opportunity to self-promote' style of its founder Wikileaks has repackaged something old as something new. While I have openly expressed my disdain for Assange & his behaviour, collecting a bunch of this stuff in a well nown & easily accessible place has an upside.

I don't know exactly how much of the stuff in there is from the illegally obtained Manning material. I don't knwo what the official position is, but perhaps a exception could be made for some of the older stuff.

sorry, but no.

i understand it's in the public view now, and that many of the old cables no longer have the 'keep people alive' imperative to them; however, it's illegal for US DoD members to access this, so i'd like to prevent accidental illegal access if possible. so no WL stuff directly on WAB, please.

I wasn't asking whether the wikileaks cables were legal or illegal according to the US jurisdiction.

My actual question was whether julian assanges team has cables from 47, 62, 65 and 71 time period.

How come no one has bumped this guy off?

I mean he has steped on some pretty big toes and all.

Out here in UP, I can get a 14 year old to do it for less than 2 dollars.

Is he protected?

how much a society values rule of law is demonstrated not when it is applied to upstanding citizens but to scumbags like Assange.

Yet you will no doubt agree that the society we speak of is not averse to assassinations of a political and military nature when the situation has demanded?

So I was wondering.

I think I've got it. The WL people probably have most of the cables. For now they're busy sorting it in the background and presenting it as separate topics(eg afghan war, iraq war, kissinger etc).

I am sorry if it is against the rules. I was replying to a compatriot who had something to say to me personally in Hindi. I do not know how to insert that script (devnagari) so replied to him using english script. Will be happy to translate both if required. As well as delte my post once Anil has had a chance to read my reply. Please let me know. Either way its got nothing to do with anyone here rest assured. Just the 2 of us. He should have used a private message actually.

As this is an English language forum, we do indeed ask that English is used.

Using your native language with a simultaneous English translation in the post is more than welcome though

Sure, happy to translate:

Anil: Doppelganger, why are you f*cking around. You are screwing up your own respect here.

Doppelganger: Are you the resident watchman here? I am not in the habit of being a brown-tongue (like you - implied). Please maintain your own counsel and stay within your boundaries.
