“People don’t do business with America necessarily because they like us or even trust us. They do business with us because they must. We are the last, one, remaining, indispensable power”…

Antológica reacción del vocero del Pentágono sobre Wikileaks

Kelly y Morrell

La presentadora de Fox News Megyn Kelly y Geoff Morrell, vocero del Pentágono.  Durante toda la saga de Wikileaks, muchos en Estados Unidos se han estado preguntando por qué el flamante Comando Ciberespacial del Departamento de Defensa, a plena capacidad desde hace un mes, no hizo nada para evitar las filtraciones. Este miércoles, Megyn Kelly, presentadora de Fox News, entrevistó al vocero del  Pentágono, Geoff Morrell, a quien le hizo exactamente esa pregunta.

La respuesta del vocero es antológica:  

“No empleamos las fuerzas del Cibercomando (contra Wikileaks), porque la revelación de los documentos no nos van impactar negativamente a largo plazo.  El Secretario de Defensa simplemente no cree que esta situación pueda impactar demasiado contra la fuerza de Estados Unidos o contra su prestigio.  

El mundo no se relaciona con nosotros porque les gustamos o porque nos tienen confianza.  Pactan con nosotros porque no les queda más remedio.  Somos el último, el único poder indispensable que queda”.

Las filtraciones crean algunas situaciones incómodas y embarazosas para el gobierno de Estados Unidos, está claro que pone a aquellos que cooperan con nosotros, incluso a algunos de nuestros diplomáticos, en posiciones difíciles (esperemos que no en los ponga en situaciones de peligro). Pero, al final no hace, al menos en el largo plazo, impacto adverso en el prestigio de Estados Unidos.

 

“Básicamente, Estados Unidos es como Walmart… estos perdedores pueden decir lo que quieran de nosotros y de nuestras prácticas de negocios sórdidos … pero llegado el Viernes Negro … todavía va a haber líneas alrededor de nuestra manzana…

Uno podría suponer que esta es una actitud que podría no funcionar durante el resto de este nuevo siglo.

Megyn Kelly, de Fox News también presentó un reciente artículo del Washington Post que postula que el Pentágono no se fía de la utilización de Comando Cibernético fuera de una zona de guerra por temor a la reacción diplomática…

Una vez más, el vocero del  Pentágono, Geoff Morrell, no pareció impresionado, afirmando que ni “vergüenza” ni “torpeza” son suficientes para justificar el uso del cibercomando.

Pentagon Spokesman: We Could Have Shut Down WikiLeaks, But We Decided Not To

Throughout all the fallout of WikiLeaks’ latest release, many have been asking why the government didn’t stop the organization before the cables were released (For instance, Glenn Beck compared it to the ease with which they shut down other illegal sites). Today, Megyn Kelly brought on the Pentagon’s Press Secretary Geoff Morrell to ask him why they didn’t use Cyber Command to stop WikiLeaks. Morrell admitted that they could have, but decided not to because, really, the documents aren’t going to hurt us that much. He then proceeded to brush all the accumulated dirt clear of his shoulder.

Here’s a notable response:

At the end of the day, as you heard from the Secretary of Defense yesterday, Megyn, this creates some awkward and embarrassing situations for the United States government, it clearly puts those who cooperate with us, even some of our diplomats, in difficult positions (hopefully not endangered situations). But, at the end of the day, it does not, at least over the long term, adversely impact America’s power or prestige. Secretary Gates just does not buy into that. People don’t do business with America necessarily because they like us or even trust us. They do business with us because they must. We are the last, one, remaining, indispensable power.

Basically, America is Walmart. These losers can say whatever they want about us and our sordid business practices but, come Black Friday, there’s still gonna be lines around the block. One could assume that this is an attitude that might not work during the rest of this new century.

Kelly also brought up a recent Washington Post article that posited that the Pentagon is wary of using Cyber Command outside of a warzone for fear of diplomatic backlash. Again, Morrell seemed unimpressed, stating that neither “embarrassment” now “awkwardness” were enough to warrant the command’s use.

  • Cartoon: The Debagging of Uncle Sam

    Wikileaks cartoon

    This cartoon by Peter Brookes from The Times relates to the leaking to the Guardian and other international media by WikiLeaks of more than 250,000 classified cables from US embassies, many sent as recently as February this year. Read more >>

     Uncle Sam is on what appears to be a stage lecturing a large audience. His trousers (and pants) are around his ankles. In fact, he has just been  debagged by the WikiLeaks figure who can be seen running off, laughing wildly.

    EXPLANATION
    The debagging of Uncle Sam is clearly a metaphor for the embarassing (and exposed) position the US finds itself in following the leaks. (In fact, the Guardian talks about the US world view being laid bare.) Another expression which springs to mind is to be caught with your pants down, which means to find yourself in an embarassing situation you are not prepared for.

    TROUSERS VERSUS PANTS
    It is often said that Britain and America are two nations divided by a common language. One of the most common areas of confusion concerns the words used for clothing. For example, American pants are British trousers. Pants in the UK (US shorts) are underpants and worn under trousers. Still confused? Read BBC’s h2g2’s entertaining article on trousers versus pants. jeffreyhill.typepad.com/english/2010/11/carto…

Todo esto es indesligable de la política y por ello esta también se observa. Ecology, social and environmental sustainability, emphasis on conservation of rivers and ecosystems, denounces impact of megaprojects. All this is inseparable from politics, for it, the politics is also evaluated.
