The Ecudorian Government has granted asylum to the founder of wikileaks but I believe that the US and Great Britain won’t allow him to get away. He is eventually going to run out of places to hide because the countries that he has come up against have too many resources at their disposal to use to get him.
Whenever a general gets ready to go to war he has to count the cost of losing and consider the resources that he has on hand. He has to consider the possibility of losing and the consequences of losing. Unfortunately Mr Assange failed to do so before he leaked hundreds of thousands of pages of classified documents that put the lives of many of our military ring customers in danger along with our operatives.
Ecuadorean Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino has announced that he had granted political asylum to Assange.
Patino said he’d tried to get guarantees from the Americans, the British, and the Swedes that Assange would not be extradited to the United States, but that all three had rebuffed him. If Assange were extradited to the U.S. “he would not have a fair trial, could be judged by special or military courts, and it’s not implausible that cruel and degrading treatment could be applied, that he could be condemned to life in prison, or the death penalty.”
It’s funny how different people see things differently but my opinion is certainly not the same as the Ecudorians. I believe that he should be extradited, jailed, tried, found guilty and sentenced.
