    Good luck with that.
    Guy need to be put in prison for the rest of his life.

    Well, maybe that isn't fair. He only reported what was given to him.
    Bradly Manning should be executed for treason.

    Then again Assange persuaded Manning to commit treason.

    Hrm. What a predicament.

    Capital punishment should have been removed in the prior century. It's one of the most barbaric things in our society.

    Some folk just love a good killin'. 'Good' Christian Americans more than most it seems..

    Aha :p There's talk of untamperable diplomatic bags being used to move him - but it's too crazy. Reckon he'll sit here for years until a deal is cut..

    Unsure about that. But at long as the diplomatic bag was marked in the vehicle they couldn't touch it. They could use a crate like a case below.

    In the 1984 Dikko Affair, a former Nigerian government minister, was kidnapped and placed in a shipping crate, in an attempt to transport him from the United Kingdom back to Nigeria for trial.[4] However, it was not marked as a diplomatic bag, which allowed British customs to open it.[4]

    There are just too many problems with such punishment. You can't really prove anything as an absolute, and many people have been exonerated later by things such as DNA evidence even after being convicted of crimes like murder. It's just one of those punitive options that should never have made it this far. I'd imagine when it does finally go away at a federal level, people will wonder why it took so long.

    Seems like a fairly obvious oversight. Kinda surprised Mossad agents (or contractors) would be so incompetent.

    So I guess if you want to commit sex crimes the key is to release a bunch of dirt on countries around the world and you won't have to face trial. Solid plan.

    Lots to be learned from the situation, like try to question people about crimes before they leave the country not after.

    I shouldnt have said charged because he hasn't been there to be charged, but that's what this whole Warrant/asylum thing is about.

    When one has the power he does, having no fear of governments, he may have gotten carried away one nigHt.

    Innocent until proven Guilty

    What power? The reason he's in an Embassy is exactly because he's afraid of governments. :confused: None of what you said is anything else that utter muck. He releases government information so.. he might be a rapist? :rolleyes:

    A couple of girls wanted him checked out for STDs and are convinced into pushing for a rape case. The prosecutor drops it for lack of evidence, then a new one comes along and pushes for it.

    Not suspicious at all? Then Sweden refuses to protect Assange from rendition when he goes over for questioning. That's why Assange can't go back. If they really care for this 'case' they will either protect him from rendition or come to the Embassy for questioning as invited already.

    Good decision by Equador. Assange exposed the hipocracy of various government's diplomatic dealings with other countries, and their willingness to do dirty deals for political gain. The president of Equador sees through that sham.

    Good way to look at it. Makes you wonder why these governments fear this lone, little man so much.

    I wouldn't doubt him yet. He didn't get this far on luck.

    I say let him get in the bag, don't open it, but run it through the x-ray machine 20-30 times, then stick it in the unpressurized, unheated cargo area for the flight.

    Have a nice day.

    I assume they'll put some plastic balls in the bag with him to calm him down? :)
