    Julian Assange should be awarded Nobel peace prize, suggests Russia

    Julian Assange should be awarded Nobel peace prize, suggests Russia | Media | guardian.co.uk

    Russia has suggested that Julian Assange should be awarded the Nobel peace prize, in an unexpected show of support from Moscow for the jailed WikiLeaks founder.

    In what appears to be a calculated dig at the US, the Kremlin urged non-governmental organisations to think seriously about "nominating Assange as a Nobel Prize laureate".

    "Public and non-governmental organisations should think of how to help him," the source from inside president Dmitry Medvedev's office told Russian news agencies. Speaking in Brussels, where Medvedev was attending a Russia-EU summit yesterday , the source went on: "Maybe, nominate him as a Nobel Prize laureate."
    So Berkley wants to honor Assange's source, and now Russia wants to honor Assange with the same award Al Gore received?

    It makes more sense by the day.

    LOL

    As an Australian born myself, I count him among some of the greatest living Australians.

    I voted for him on the Time most influential people list. I like what he's doing.

    As for Russia calling for him to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize... who cares? I'd prefer him to get some sort of freedom of the press award.

    Hopefully this massive controversy he's drummed up will prompt a review of the freedom of the press stateside.

    When Wikileaks publishes Russian cables, it will be a wonderful opportunity to hold Russian leaders accountable to the idea of free speech and transparent governance.

    If they released Russian cables, Assange would be hanging by his testicles in a Siberian forest.

    I don't want to hurt your feelings, but I don't think Assange has testacles.

    He most certainly should be acknowledged

    I will also wait in anticipation for his leaks on Russia and other countries.

    His leaks on China have been provocative, to say the least.
