46. If you will look at my first position (sounds like ballet lessons) you'll see a field of

question marks. Those suggest that I don't know (and do not claim to know) a damn thing--I'm just asking questions.

I am declaring nothing. I am supposing. Speculating. Opining. Wondering. I'm not going in any direction, actually--I am simply laying out a smorgasbord of possibilities. Pick, choose or refuse, as you wish.

It's what people do on message boards. I am not throwing down on any singular declaration; I'm supposing based on eyeballing the available information, applying my years of experience re: how people play these games in public and private life, and relying on a long lifetime of judgment that has kept me alive up to this point in time to come up with a few "what ifs" when it comes to this case.

If I were a US government official, though, AND I wanted Assange corralled and neutralized, I'd be laughing like hell at Ecuador--I can't lie. With this asylum business, they've wittingly or unwittingly volunteered to be the jailhouse for Mister Assange. If I were Sweden, I'd be hoping that the guy did four long years in that tiny little room in the embassy--the maximum time he could do as a guest of their nation (at least that's what I've read). He'd have more room to roam in a Swedish prison, actually!
