For me this guy has never been about the leaks. Put the media in jail they were the ones that commitited treason here. But these charges have always given me a strong bad feeling. In sweeded I mean. Maily do to the fact that he left sweeden very shortly after he knew they wanted to talk to him.. See this to me was a red flag. 'Cause innocent people do not leave the country. So innocent then stay & prove your innocent. I heard (& please crrect me if I am wrong) that in sweeden they pratice Napoleonic Code of law. Here inLA so do we & we are the only state in the union that does. It works the same. I'm just saying. And of course the added rape chrarge is probably trumped up. Still was he sleeping with teen girls??!.

And Sweden will do the United States' bidding and send him to face a possible dire fate. Something tells me that the "Insurance" file will be unlocked and publicized soon...

, I only hope he isn't tried in a kangaroo court. There is a lot about this so called rape I do not believe it .I believe he was set up,if that is a correct assumption then I fear for him in the outcome of the trial.

..Power..or the belief that one has it..can do terrible things a mind that is maybe already hard wired to crave it (see his birth chart?)...there is something very unsettling about this strange man's troubles..His works and actions have contributed to pushing the world into freefall..and maybe thats a good thing..I do believe he would have done better if he had managed to stay anonymous..and just quietly go about his works..for i believe his motives r just and good(ish) His methods questionable for sure..but then the arena he works in is also very shadowy. I would have stayed in sweden to answer such questions re said rapes..but would I have stayed with the knowledge that the country trying to hold me was highly likely to be in cahoots with the bad boys of the USA?..I dont know..maybe not..He may be highly favored by mars and mercury and Thoth but is he favoured by the Goddess..by the great great mother of All?..yes..he will be favoured by her..but still made to be accountable for his unKnitely behaviour to goddess plants..*Maat*..the namesake whom he operates under will tear him to pieces if he doesnt look at and understand how these troubles have become..Remembers a story about an apprentice who thought he was bigger than his master..Mr Assange is having his dirty laundry dragged out for all the world to see..instant karma?..what he does comes back to him immediately now..if he could get to grips with that concept his future path will be settled and much easier for him. Either way I wish him god speed and not just for the sake of WLeaks and world change..but for his own sake..and the sakes of other silly young women he may come into contactt with in the future...x

Internatinal politics want to condemn Julian Assange for his fairness and scruitiny of any activity that is deviant from the norms of society, freedom of speech, freedom of journalism, and to poke into matters so that public may know the truth.

He is a political victim not for the crimes that he is charged with, but any crime that may seem possible that is likely to be used, and shamelessly they use it and want to prosecute him to bring Julian Assange down. The most important and damning case against Julian Assange is to tarnish his image.

But JA is extremely defiant than most people think. As a matter of fact he is the most defiant person ever in the entire history of journalism. He is already nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, my only fear is that like so many other outstanding personalities, he might get that coveted prize in the jail. If such is his destiny than be it. For it is far more rewarding than stooping down to the bureaucrats and their lame supporters.

WikiLeaks says it is a nonprofit organization funded by human rights campaigners, journalists and the general public. Launched in 2006, it promotes the leaking of information to fight government and corporate corruption.

There is an enormous support the world over, to stop injustice to Julian Assange.

Personally I think that he is doing the whole world a favor, by exposing those that have been getting away with their acts and their deeds. If you are honest why dont you challenge him that what is in the documents is not true. Unfortunately we live in a deceptive world one that says if you try to expose me, I will find a way to expose you. Freedom and Liberty is at stake. Please speak up.

I think the world might realize his worth in unseen documents. This is just a formality that has to be put behind him. There are many leaks on the middle east that have yet to see the light of day.
I am a female and I do not believe for one minute that he raped those two women , who would not come forward, in Sweden or anyplace else.

I watched the one and only interview he gave to a hard hitting journalist on tv who asked him tough and searching questions, and he answered everything that was put to him, including what he's been accused of. This case isn't about what is alleged it's about the US wanting to get hold of him, I hope they don't.

The US wants him for a reason, that's for sure. Now, what other than embarrassment could that be? Seems to me NONE of this is of any surprise to anyone....even an article I read today said that the Inner Beltway of DC was and is clueless as to the worlds understanding of the US Puppet Show. It's all such a facade and pile of games that we all should have a remote control in our hands to "change the channel". It' a bad act, with bad actors and actresses and noone believes the "story line" at all and they haven't for a long time.
Where is that remote control, anyway?

It's very easy in this country to vilify anyone who doesn't meet our "patriotic standards" - Assange has merely shown where the cracks are - while politicians in our country are getting away with anything and everything, Assange is being made an example of - don't mess with the powers that be or else.
