But that is pretty much the world.

I'm sure there are a lot of other countires that people would like to know the real story about. (insert your choices here)

However I think wikileaks (assange) knows that if they (he) released docs from those countries, their staff would start having "accidents".

U.S. is an easier target...

I don't think they do especially. These cables are from the US so it seems that way, but other stuff they have published has had nothing to do with the US - for example the membership list of the (racist nutters) BNP here in the UK.

*(I'm not a fan of indescriminate leaking either)

Maybe Wikileaks posts info according to how important it is to the world? What will effect the world more: A leaked cable between Bhutan and Birma, or a leaked cable between Russia and USA? WL posts what it can get its hands on, but it looks for "juicy" gossip.

Hard to overlook that...

When all their oil is used up, we might all be riding something with four legs.

They don't, but the media does.

Or the media focuses of Wikileaks when they feature the US.

Kind of.
