I'm shocked that there are people who believe that Ecuador has done well by granting Assange political asylum.
To the contrary, this is a case of a potential criminal who has taken shelter in a SOCIALIST dictatorship from trial in a free world country. Nothing could be more scandalous than this. This act by Ecuador violates international law. No person against who criminal proceedings are underway can be considered a refugee.
Why did Assange not go to the court (in Sweden) if he was innocent? His guilt is now self-evident to the whole world.
Of course, there are those who believe that the rape charge were cooked up. Well, that was all the more reason for Assange to prove his innocence – IN COURT. His defence (political asylum) is ridiculous in the extreme.
Assange is clearly a HEINOUS RAPIST hiding from the courts.
Let's not not talk about Wikileaks in this contest. Let's don't mix up things!! That's a great and fundamental human error – to mix things.
This is a CLEAR CUT CASE of rape, and Assange is as guilty as anyone can be of rape. His running away from justice is clear proof.
A friend has suggested that Assange has committed a "petty" crime. Surely rape is not a petty crime! It is one of the most heinous crimes on the planet. We can't disregard claims by women of rape. Why would any woman make such allegations if these were not true? The matter is not for us to decide, anyway.
Then I was told that the back ground leading to the rape charges is shaky and not convincing. Well, that's exactly the point. No honest man is afraid of the court. I'm not a judge and don't have time to investigate. I can't form opinions on crimes based on flimsy journalistic claims. Assange should face a proper trial.
The fact that he is HIDING from the law is PROOF that he is guilty. I can't think of any other explanation.
I'm told that the complaints against Assange "were planted by FBI James Bond girls style". That is sheer nonsense!
The complaint against Julian Assange was first lodged in Sweden on 20 August 2010. The release of 251,000 cables by Assange took place on 28 November 2010. Assange was of NO INTEREST to anyone in the world when the complaint against him was lodged.
Please be clear: either you are against rape or you are not. Your “feelings” for a rapist should not cloud your judgement.
