43. If you are going to be snarky, at least read the whole thread, OK?

You don't see anything of the sort.

Funny how you accuse ME of "reading the tabloids" and the first I heard of this "Poopy Julian doesn't flush" shit (forgive the expression) was right HERE--in this thread. From another DUer.

Sheesh. Pull the string!

Stop personalizing. It makes you look very petty. Read contextually or at least read the whole conversation--it'll keep you out of trouble.

I don't think a thing of the "exculpatory evidence" since--if it's been "scrubbed from the internet" I haven't seen it, now, have I? I have read the statements of the ladies' to the police, and those do not sound like happy campers--no matter what quotes are being flung around to suggest that they are happy and not concerned--there's conflicting comment there, to put it nicely. Since most of us don't read Swedish, either, we are all relying on translations.

I cannot speak for the government of Sweden. I am not a Swede and I know damn little about their justice system, save what I have read in papers that are NOT tabloids. I do understand essential concepts of sovereignty, extradition, etc. I do know what an international arrest warrant is. I know enough, after reading many articles on the subject, that even though he has not been formally "charged" under Swedish law, the proceedings have reached that stage over there that, if the situation were transported to USA or UK, it is the equivalent of being charged even though a formal accusation has not been brought forward.

I do think a lot of this twisted conspiratorial conversation about this guy is a bit over the top. If the US wants Assange to stop doing what he was doing with the Wikileaks, well, they've gotten their wish now, haven't they? He's in a shitty little room with a small bed, a treadmill and a computer--and if he tries to run his business out of the embassy, he'll find himself in a new bath of hot water or at the very least, without an internet connection, I'd bet.

It's like prison, right now, only with email. He's painted into a corner of his own making.
