    You do realise the key word in the first bit is allegations, if the Swedes had any definitive proof, they would've gotten the Poms would to extradite him already. And as for the second one, he didn't betray anyone either.

    Depends how you define "betray". I'm sure someone, somewhere, feels betrayed at something I did at one point or another...

    If any Australian troops die because of this, I hope you'll be here to cheer.

    If any Australian troops die 'cause of him, I'll gladly order in the firing squad for him, until that time, I'm gonna keep supporting him just to piss you off.

    He'll eat lead. Executive Order 12333 protects against heads of state. It says nothing about annoying pseudo-journalists.

    Then America will have a cloud of suspicion over it, nothing to prove, and things will be secured again. Plus it'll teach other wannabes what to expect if they decide to try and vomit secrets to people not meant to have them.

    You're asking two separate things at the same time. They're separate issues.

    Seems to me the sexual accusations were brought up before and he was let go. Why the change all of a sudden?

    If the Swedes ever put a case together, then he could face trial, where he may or may not be found guilty.

    Who did he "betray"? He embarrassed some political functionaries by exposing their cocktail-part gossip behind the scenes, and that will continue as long as the leaks do.

    You support him cause you're a lib. The Aussie troopers would deserve to die, wouldn't they? If they hadn't been acting imperialistic, nothing would have happen. Am I right? I mean they're acting like pawn of the Great Satan of the West.
