Then you are ignorant. The Vienna Convention that governs embassies has been almost more sacred than the US constitution. Not even the US, USSR, North Korea and so on would violate the convention because they know, that as soon as they do that, their own diplomats are going to be targets in any country on the planet.I doubt every other country's regime would risk the consequences of embassy invasion simply because the UK had a dispute w/Ecuador.
There are 2 situations I know off where a government has violated an embassy.. the US embassy in Tehran by the Iranians (although you can argue this was not the government doing it), and the Chinese embassy in Belgrade by US bombers. You simply do not violate the embassy of a country... it is a big no no. Even during active war between two countries has embassies been protected.
Nope, the UK made a false threat and Ecuador called them on it and now the UK is back tracking. The Cameron government is looking foolish and they know it.The more credible explanation is that the UK is not invading the embassy because Assange has some powerful counterthreat up his sleeve.
Now that is horse****. The US nor the UK have rarely violated the Vienna convention. Now the US pisses in general on international treaties thanks to the GOP arrogance, but this convention is one that even the GOP have not yet violated, because they know that every US citizen abroad working at embassies will come one hell of a target if they do. Even Israel wont violate the convention for god sake.The US and UK are notorious for routinely violating territorial sovereignty and blatantly ignoring international laws and treaties, so the idea that a treaty would stop an embassy invasion is absurd.
