Assange is silly, just like most hysterical anti-Americans. The Yanks do some bad things, who doesn’t? Their industrial-military complex is too powerful, their presidents pathetic, their past defence of fascist right-wingers too influenced by the horrors of Stalin etc etc.
However, their enemies are Iran, North Korea, China, a variety of nasty stans in Central Asia, Cuba, Sudan and so on – all nasty dictatorships; that should tell the Yank-hating lemmings something, shouldn’t it? Unfortunately, we live in a world ruled and rapidly being destroyed by Homo Sapiens, so if you are expecting perfect governments, forget it. We are sad to say in a case of “the lesser of many evils”.
Almost all the “revelations” teach us nothing we didn’t know or couldn’t guess, let alone what we NEED to know. They actually shows US diplomats in quite a favourable light. Any updates on that? No, I thought not, though it depends of course how you define “crime”. Assange’s definition (shared by the usual ranting suspects) seems to be “anything whatsoever the US says or does.” And the idea that revealing private communications is either moral or can do any good is laughable, UNLESS crime is revealed. The world is not in any way better by this immoral publication of private communications. Peace has not broken out anywhere, no nasty regimes or Presidents have fallen (as opposed to Iraq of course), no diseases have been cured, no prisoners of conscience have been freed by fascist scum. On the other hand, fascist scum are revelling in America’s discomfort, the Assange ego has wildly inflated and thousands of Yankophobes are having a field day. Well done Assange. And I’ll be more convinced when we get leaks from the Axes of Evil mentioned above.
Sorry, all a load of rubbish. If Assange wants to be hero, let him go to fight in Afghanistan to liberate the people from religious fundamentalist fascist lunacy – like REAL MEN are doing.
Unfortunately, others have allowed their rabid anti-Americanism to delude them into thinking they are on some sort of moral crusade and to jump on this bandwaggon hurtling towards a steep cliff. All very silly.
The “rape” charges? Sweden is not noted for its fascism and bent police, so I suggest everyone calm down and wait for justice to take its course. Much less fun than endless anti-American conspiracy hysteria of course.
