    Whoa wait a second. Let Ecuador play it out their way.

    Look at things logically - if the US did manage to ensnare Assange the entire planet would be up in arms, not least the newly liberated Arab Spring countries that relied on his leaks to develop their platform of dissent.

    Wait until August 12th.

    Assange is dining on fine ceviche and llapingachos and drinking Paradoja for now.

    We should have some solidarity with our Equadorian /brothers at this time.

    It's looking like Assange will be learning Spanish in short order.

    Ecuador is stalling. They don't want Assange there any more than he wants to go. A lot of people whose hearts are in the right place are being played by that attention whore.

    Oh, and LOS needs to work on her people skills.

    Are people in your world not allowed to have diverse opinions or voice their own interpretations of what they see, hear and read?

    You gotta' love America. You get to live here and trash-talk us at the same time. But your logic isn't very clear. Why exactly do you want Gringos to eat shit? Is it because I don't believe the exaggerations and misrepresentations surrounding in the article?

    Diplomacy has its own rules and rituals, Ecuador government must play in that tune, so just wait and see...
    They must use up all peasfull possibilities, and than they can say :"We offered you all combinations, so we are going to take Assange with us"
    (I hope that I am wright, I want to believe that it will happen just like that) :)

    It's possible that it will, but I believe the best that can be hoped for is for Ecuador to get assurances from the U.K., Sweden and the U.S. that Assange will not be extradited to the U.S. regardless. The prospect of Ecuador offering asylum, then the Brits nabbing him as soon as he sets foot outside the embassy would guarantee the max embarrassment for everyone.

    It's amusing watching everyone assuming that Assange will be extradited to the US if he goes to Sweden. Maybe Sweden wants to prosecute him for something else.

    P.S. put on a condom douchebag; you wouldn't have these issues. asshole.

  15. Nope, i simply don't fucking like you because you shit talk my country when all you know about it was that the airports where shitty 10 fucking years ago.
    Do some research man, Sweden has in the past handed men over to the US with little fanfare as possible.

    It wasn't just the airports.

  19. found this:

    The fact is, regarding the “open” requests of extradition from the USA, Sweden has granted extradition to the USA in ALL OF CASES in which the asked person was in Swedish territory

    Unfortunately, it seems pretty likely they are going to get him if he doesn't find asylum. Its just a matter of time...

    Ecuadorian president denies Assange asylum rumors

    Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa took to Twitter to dispel rumors that his government had granted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange political asylum. Correa added that no decision has been made either way.

    “Assange asylum rumor is false,” Correa confirmed on his Twitter feed. He added that he is waiting for a Foreign Ministry report on the issue, without which a decision will not be made.
    According to an earlier report in The Guardian, Ecuador decided to grant Assange asylum.

    However, RT's sources in the Correa administration denied that any decision had been made on the matter.

    A representative of the Correa administration in Ecuador confirmed to RT by phone that no official decision has been made on whether to grant Assange asylum.

    Assange requested political asylum after the British Supreme Court refused to reopen his appeal against extradition to Sweden where he is wanted for questioning over alleged sex crimes. The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up in the country’s London embassy since June 19.

    Ecuador has always been supportive of the WikiLeaks and Assange, its leader. In May, Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa said in an appearance on the Julian Assange Show on RT that the time has come to put an end to the stereotypical wicked government that persecute journalists and news outlets. He welcomed Assange to the “club of the persecuted.” And in November 2010, Ecuador’s Deputy Foreign Minister Kintto Lucas said his country is "open to giving [Assange] residency in Ecuador."

    The asylum guarantees him safe passage from the UK to Ecuador, says Professor Donald Rothwell from the Australian National University College of Law.

    In Sweden the whistleblower is wanted for questioning over accusations of sex crimes, but Assange and most of his supporters fear that once he arrived in Sweden, he would be handed over to US authorities.

    Assange and his lawyers believe that the US has already lodged a sealed indictment against Assange, and that his case might outdo the one of Bradley Manning.

    The whistleblower website founded by Julian Assange has leaked hundreds of thousands of classified diplomatic cables, including top secret documents from the US Department of Defense, and secret cables from the State Department.
    ‘Asylum would be a big step in the right direction’

    Kevin Zeese, an attorney and member of the Bradley Manning Support Network, believes the decision to grant Assange asylum would be a big step in the right direction. There would still be a number of hurdles for Assange to overcome, however.

    “The charges are still outstanding, and he needs to get safe passage out of Great Britain,” Zeese noted to RT. “It sounds like Ecuador has been trying to negotiate a great deal prior to making this decision, so maybe that’s already been done, but if not, that’ll be the next challenge: safe passage.”

    Another roadblock Assange and Ecuador would have to keep in mind is the US military, which could try to prevent Assange from reaching Ecuador.

    “Are they going to surround Assange’s plane with military planes and bring him down in Sweden, or bring him down in the United States, and force him to land outside of Ecuador?” he said. “It’s not a done deal.”

    Zeese also pointed to fact that the Correa government could also face repercussions for its decision to grant Assange political asylum.

    “The government of United States will do everything it can to put pressure on Ecuador to try to change its decision,” Zeese noted. “I think that Correa needs to make sure to watch out for his government’s survival. The United States has been well-known for organizing coups in Latin America. This is an ongoing struggle between the US Empire and Latin American countries, and it’s been a long-term one.”

    With nutballs like this guy in his corner, Manning is fucking doomed.

    The US government is itching to make memorable examples of both Manning and Assange. In Manning's case they will likely succeed, already "having the body", as it were.

    Er, with which part of what Zeese said do you disagree?

    Or maybe the part where the guy thinks the US would stage a military takeover of Ecuador to catch Assange.
  34. Anonymous Member

    That's not what he said.
    The US under Nixon and Kissinger, mounted a coup to overthrow Salvador Allende, to name just one instance.
    They won't go after Ecuador solely for Assange, but will go for the whole enchilada. Correa, they don't like. He's on the same list Chávez and the Castros are on.
  35. Anonymous Member

    They also attempted/assisted an assassination of Chavez around 2003 or so, South American countries have been quite the thorn in the US State Department's side. Hillary has spent a lot of time there in recent years trying to bring the offending countries onboard.
    Yet still many of these countries will just not roll-over and do what the US tell's them to do. You wonder why Chavez dislikes the US gov well if someone tried to kill you then you probably would not like them either.
    Off Topic my apologies I could not resist.
    Back on to Julian Assange

    Chavez is a douchebag demagogue and nobody's hero. Ecuador doesn't have enough oil for the US to bother with it.

    No foreign power has attacked US since 1941, get over it.
