    You really are one strange dude - apparently not dissuaded from you conspiracy and alternate history theories by facts at all, are you?

    With Assange inside, UK police guard Ecuador embassy - Yahoo! News
    Duh, the UK government isn't going to humiliate itself by revealing the contents of private negotiations/plans (unless, of course, someone leaks it!).

    You just have to use your noodle: what's keeping UK police from arresting Assange inside the embassy? Powerful, influential governments don't honor international treaties without an incentive.

    OK, the "right wing loons" part is made-up, considering obama has also turned traitor and joined forces w/the anti-freedom pols.

    Nope, logic. The UK doesn't honor treaties without an incentive, so everything else I said logically follows from that.

    It's amazing, with all the freedom-stomping anti-journalist action going on in the world (Russia, China, S. America, Syria, Iran, the rest of the mideast...) that someone could somehow point to the US as anti-journalist because of one actual scumbag traitor.

    For Pete's sake, Dan Rather aired a blatently fraudulent document against a presidential candidate on national television... did anything legal happen to him? No. If someone did that in Venezuela, for example, that's life in prison with hard labor (if one survives the torture).

    Could you provide us with some examples where the UK or the US invaded the embassy of another country and arrested someone? Just one will do.

    What is the source of your hatred and contempt for western democracies? Just curious.

    No, that would not be logic. Logic would be simply waiting for Assange to leave the embassy and not causing much negative press.

    Re: Julian Assange will be granted asylum, says official

    We wrongly still see ourselves as true diplomats, who still care a great deal about many of these treaties that we had a large hand in shaping. Most countries today like Ecuador have the balls to question our actions, its in trend for leaders in second/third world countries to stand up to past European colonial powerhouses. Calling bluff on our threats and forcing us to immediately backtrack when greater attention is put on us. There's been cases like this since Thatcher left (I'm not a Maggy supporter, but she certainly had balls).

    It seems to me like people in our government in recent years have a kind of colonial tick that comes out every now and then. We think we can behave in the way we used to and countries will lie down and accept it. They never do and we backtrack on threats we should never be making these days. Threatening to violate the sanctity of an embassy over a few pseudo rape charges?(Okay perhaps one credible one) You have to agree with solletica that there is something more to that.

    Yeah, there's something more to it. The dude leaked classified information.
