...[Wikileaks] show how Iranian regional ambitions have placed Teheran's fingerprints on myriad political processes across the Middle East. They detail Iran's extensive interference in Iraq, quote the Saudi king’s assertion of Iranian aid to the Houthi rebels in Yemen, outline Iranian and Syrian involvement with illegal arms transfers from North Korea and describe the extensive involvement of Revolutionary Guards personnel in shipping weapons to Hizbullah during the Second Lebanon War (using the Iranian Red Crescent relief organization as cover).

So the leaked cables provide added and deepened color to an already existing picture of regional cold war. ...

Iran is attempting a hostile takeover of the local system. ...

So, after all this info has leaked out...we still want to execute Assange?

Seems that only the real Liberal Globalist wants to execute Assange now.

Execute Manning. Put Assange in the same cell as Pollard for the rest of his life.

Assange is going to have to live in custodial protection for the rest of his life... he will now become a willing accomplice for internet censorship... His life as a free man is over... The sex charges are a cover story... His former employer hacks ATM accounts... and the attacks on credit card sites were more than just server overloads... another bullshiite cover story... There is more here than anyone wants to tell, and the Russians are in the center of it...

Interpol's involvement is unprecedented. So is the fact that Assange is being held w/o bail for charges like, "Having consensual sex with a second woman a few days later without informing her that he had just been with Ardin, and then, a day later, allegedly refusing to return a phone call on his cell phone, when she tried to call him to ask him to take an STD test."

He’s being held from the places he thought he could hide. You give this person sympathy over nowhere to hide?
