    You don't know that was done. You've been told that by the same gang of liars that told you about WMD 18 years ago.

    You believe known liars, while I am most skeptical of their statements.

    AFAIK his lawyers are said to have commented on the incident so I am not strongly disputing it happened , or something happened , I am just sceptical of how this , like everything else regarding Assange is being depicted. The picture I have seen was a toilet in the embassy apparently free from anything by the looks of it. Nothing on the walls either. No dead bodies. No dead kittens. etc etc


    My view is that the really big issues surrounding this new Assange situation , legality , IMF loans , vindictive revocations etc etc are being dodged and supplanted with trivial smears against the man himself with little or no evidence to support it thus far.

    The Daily Mail ( tory rag in the uk ) released footage of him on a skateboard yesterday. It showed him standing around playing around with one and them he scooted all of about 7 foot across the floor of what looked like the room he is living in. A far cry from him skateboarding through the corridors of the embassy itself which, IIRC , was what had been stated earlier

    What do you know about it 3leftsdoo ?

    Well it looks like everybody is getting their justifications in order if the below is actually the case

    The Ecuadoreans have released to the British allegedly after being given a written assurance he won't be extradited to the US. Their get out of jail card

    The British if this is true can honour it and extradite him to Sweden to face questionings over the alleged rape case. That's their get out of jail card

    The Swedes have promised nothing so are free to then extradite him to the USA

    And the USA can carry on punishing Chelsea Manning in order to try to make a " Assange hacked a US military server password " stick in the meantime until they actually get their man , which I am sure will be the case , eventually

    But Assange is the target of one of the most vicious attack campaigns I've ever seen.

    You'd think he was Hitler.

    Or Gandhi...
    And the US is planning a political show trial as revenge for Assange making them look stupid. The jury would not consist of his 'peers', that is Australians, but of Americans guaranteed to hate him and primed with anti-Assange propaganda. It will be a dark day for US ,justice' and damaging to the USA's standing in the world.

    It does for "non-capital" offences and/or where the requesting country had assured the UK government that no death sentence will be sought or imposed.

    Admittedly that second half isn't going to be much comfort to the first person who is extradited to "Country A" based on those assurances and then executed. But that execution would likely stop ALL extraditions to "Country A" REGARDLESS of alleged offence.

    With my record, I don't deserve the best. What's second best?

    The attacks on Assange are attacks on speech, the free press, government transparency, our Constitution, the UN Declaration, and basic decency.

    I'm sure he has his faults, but his fate is a matter of great importance to everyone in the world.
    Aww, poor little hacker got busted, and now he's paying the price.

    My heart bleeds for him.
