Wikileaks Fallout

The most recent release of 250 000 confidential US cables by Wikileaks is unlikely to do any permanent damage to the US’ standing in the world since they do not uncover anything that could be described as earthmoving.

Foreign Policy describes the 10 most awkward situations relating to the recent leaks and for an extreme look at the possible outcome of these leaks head over the The Week. These links are really only worth looking at for comedic value- the repercussions outlined in them are unlikely to eventuate, it is just pure media sensationalism.
