A well-known British politician, who is considered a bit of a ‘radical’ in the best sense, in the UK, has launched a defence of Julian Assange, pointing out that, should Assange be convicted of what he is accused of, there would be no penalty in Britain, since his alleged acts are not illegal in Britain..
Galloway is right…and considering (though Galloway demurred discussion of) who these women are attached to, and at least suspected of acting for, it’s hard to simply assume that Assange is wildly speculating that he’s being set up by the Yanks.
Further, if they want to try him for ‘treason’ then the term has lost all meaning, since he isn’t a citizen of the US and he did nothing not expressly stated in the US Constitution as his or anyone’s right, that is, the freedom to inform…
Is Assange being railroaded? Of course, he is..
Is the US still powerful enough to totally screw him for Wikileaks? Of course they are, and never mind what Putin did to Pussy Riot, what will inevitably happen to Assange is far, far worse, but definitely falls into the same category of despotism and treachery…’free Assange’ will only be a hollow cry…I honestly think that if they cannot ‘get’ him through this Swedish blackmail, he will, eventually, be “disappeared”…call me paranoid, but many, many decades of US treachery in Central and Latin America, as well as domestically, have made me that way….
