Poll: should Wikileaks just release their ''thermonuclear file''?

 Rather than waiting for some judicial or other harm to come Assange and others in the organization, wouldn't the best protection be releasing the thermonuclear file, so everyone's anger is focused on the corruption in their governments and even those tasked with persecuting Wikileaks might realize they would better serve the common good by staying their hand?

If Wikileaks dropped some of their biggest bombs, it could reset our democracy and force Washington to acknowledge what and who is really driving many of our policies instead of insulting our intelligence with childish drivel about chasing terrorists with the most powerful military in the world, which if true would be like swatting at flies with a bazooka.

Wouldn't it be nice if we had real information, so we could make real choices about whether to support wars?

If we could see the internal discussions of the Wall Street bailout from both the Wall Street side and the government side?

That would be democracy. What we have now is an increasing hollow puppet show. Everyone sees that they are puppets, that the script is crappy, and we suspect whose hands are up their asses, but we don't have the definitive evidence to prove it.

Wikileaks could do that, save their own asses, give our democracy back to us, and maybe even give it to some people who never had it before. That's worth more than any game of chess they are playing now.

Why doesn't Wikileaks just release their ''thermonuclear file''?
Wikileaks should release their thermonuclear file while they can
Wikileaks should wait only because the information has more impact when it trickles out
Wikileaks should wait because the damage would be great than the benefit

WIKILEAKS IS KIND OF LIKE LEX LUTHOR (THE WHITE VERSION NOT THE BLACK ONE) FITHING AGAINST SUPERMAN. ALL HE HAS IS IS HIS LITTLE KRYPTONITE ROCK, AND SURE HES GIVING THE MAN OF STEEL A FEW KICKS, but once clark gets the rock its gameover. THATS ALL YOU GOT IS A FEW MINUTES LEFT DONT WORRY BECAUSE THE BOY IN BLUE CANT BE BEATEN BY SUCH AN EVIL MAD MAN>

Sindy,

What's evil about pointing out the lies of our government that make real democracy impossible?

Do you want to kill the guy who told you Santa Claus isn't real too?

Spill a few beans several times a day, but spill them all. The longer it goes on, the better the chance WikiLeaks could get shut down. There are some very nervous people out there.
