Those are “celery” (salary) employees.
They got the news from a “stalk”-er.
Spies are “planted” everywhere.
Best. Pun. Ever. :)
Chikuku: A couple of recent wars, maybe. But World War II? Korea? (And, sometimes, peace is based on a lie too. Be careful what you wish for.)
Well, THAT was inevitable.
So, if no one could lie then there would be peace?
As I said earlier, sometimes peace is based on a lie. A statement may be perfectly true while being neither necessary, nor helpful, nor kind, and strife results. (Haven’t we all been there?) If silence is a lie by omission, it may be much the lesser of two evils.
And Chikuku, a lie has to be at least a little believable to count as a lie, and responsibility lies in action, not dissembling. Hitler could have claimed whatever he pleased, but no one really believed that Poland invaded Germany rather than the other way around, and it was Germany’s invasion that touched off World War II. As for Korea, lies during a war are sadly to be expected – but the war started when the North invaded the South.
The Gulf of Tonkin incident? WMDs in Iraq? I did say, “A couple of recent wars, maybe.” But I’m afraid that your claim – “When all the secrets of all the nations are leaked, there will be World Peace, because all wars are based on Lies” – is wishful thinking in its first part, and simply not true in the second.
Further, the “secrets” in the diplomatic emails that were released have already caused great damage.
Not everything that any person knows is worth blurting out to everyone. We do learn something between the ages of 2-4 and even 7-8. It’s why the little tykes can so embarrass their parents: they are utterly, guilelessly honest.
Similarly, not everything that a nation knows should be broadcast to the whole world. Our personal, private evaluations of others should remain that: private.
