(The article and other links, see below, are all in Swedish. So far international media has not reacted. But it will not be long....)

Julian Assange is wanted by Swedish police on probable grounds suspected of rape. Two women 20 and 30 years old contacted the police on Friday.

I find Assange more than slimey, this is terribly convenient, perhaps too much so.

Eh, let the investigation run where ever it leads, if he is guilty than by all means he should be incarcerated.

Charges have been withdrawn. It is a headline on Fox News, no link to an article yet (well the link opens the original charges article).

I just heard that on Fox News radio too. They said the Prosecutor has withdrawn the charges, saying he sees no reason to suspect that Assange has committed rape. This whole thing is verra verra strange.

Did Luther have this “Anti-Catholic Bias” thing I’m hearing so much about.

Hopefully the Vatican nailed his ass to the wall in retribution.

Yahoo has this:

It’s possible that there may still be a less serious charge of molestation in the works.

The chief prosecutor has withdrawn the warrant, however, investiation into the lesser charge(s) of molestation continues.

My take on this - for whatever it is worth: Probably a case of “culture clash”. Assange is fêted like a superstar in certain quarters. No lack of adoring females. Like many foreigners he has misunderstood the sexual mores of Swedish females, who are not always as “liberated” as they are reputed to be.

In short he may have behaved lika a cad, but no rape.

And took her SON This creep has a child and he’s running around the world trying to get people murdered by the Islamofascist. Does he support his child or is he as careless in the Fatherhood role?

Not a fail, a warning of what is to come. They wanted this to be obvious. Smart move actually. The next move may well be fatal for him.

Link to the interview with the woman who claimed she was molested (not raped) can be found here and here, though both articles are in Swedish.

I'm on my way out so either use a web-translator or wait for my translation tomorrow (if needed).

Cheers,

SB

PS: Note that the second article seems to be a rewrite of the first one. The sentence "It started out as consensual sex...." does not appear to be a direct quote, and "sex" could just as well mean "petting" as an intercourse, You know, it is a question of how you define "is". :)

Not to worry ScaniaBoy, I use web based translators to translate news articles as a matter of course.

It is interesting that the woman concludes that Assange is a man with with "[skew kvinnosyn] problems and he would not take no for an answer".

Assange is a creepy little Euro fascist who wants to get American soldiers killed.He definitely has a [skew kvinnosyn] problem. Soon he will be taking a lot more than no for an answer.Getting US soldiers killed is conduct that is criminal.And for that he will surely pay.

Also what the woman said seemed to address talking points, She did not describe what Assange did, which is unusual. Her comment seems stilted.But what do you expect, its a socialist country like Obama wants us to be,and perhaps she now has a rather nice deposit in her new bank account in Switzerland.

*********************************************

30-year-old woman, "I was exposed to abuse."

Information about charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange

Aftonbladet has talked to one of the women behind the notification of rape against Julian Assange.

Then she came in contact with a woman who told me that Assange had raped her, the two went to the police.

The woman is in her 30s and now wants to go out with her story in Aftonbladet to talk about what the allegations are and to correct some inaccuracies in the news, published in the Express this morning.

During his visit to Sweden, Julian Assange met the two women. He was suspected of raping the first one, suspicions on Saturday afternoon were withdrawn by the chief prosecutor Eva , but he is still suspected of molestation of the other woman.

Consider themselves victims of sexual abuse

Women and Assange met during his stay in Stockholm and he has not previously seen them nor the women each other.

The woman in her 30s said that she, for her part claims to be a victim of a sexual assault or molestation, but not a rape.

The original police report came in last Friday. Another woman approached her and told a similar storey, but with worse history. The woman is between 20 and 30.


Left detail


For the sake of the ongoing police investigation about the woman in her 30s, it does not tell you more details as of yet, but she has left a very detailed statement to the police. Although the other woman has made a detailed statement to the police.


- "I thought immediately of her social duty because I had an experience similar to her's," the woman says to Aftonbladet.

The two women then decided to jointly go to the police to report their data.

"I feel no threat '

- It is quite wrong to say that we would be afraid of Assange and therefore refused to notify police, "said the woman, he is not violent and I do not feel threatened by him. "( I womder if she would say that while he was doing the dirty? Comment-C7, sounds a little fabricated.)

In both cases, it is about voluntary sex, details later released about the assault.

- The other woman wanted to report rape. I gave my story as testimony to her story and to support her. We are full of information, the woman says to Aftonbladet.

"Not orchestrated allegations" ,

The conspiracy theories that are flooding the web right now dismiss the woman in her 30s.

- The charges against Assange are of course not orchestrated by either the Pentagon or another. The responsibility for what happened to me and the other girl is about a man with [skew kvinnosyn] problems and he would not take no for an answer.( Comment : Sounds a little fabricated, like a talking point.-C7)

There is still a ton of Schadenfreude to be mined here. "It's the seriousness of the charge.", dont'cha know.

This Leftist know-nothing pimp, this scumbag Olbermann wannabe, has his rep permanently, deservingly scarred by a couple of flings, precisely because other EuroLeftist pimps gave Swedish fish the right to criminalize regret.

And the regret is all his! lol

“skev kvinnosyn” is a term difficult to translate from Swedish. Its been bugging me for half the day. I tried looking everywhere on the web.

Turns out it means something like a “warped twisted sex idea about women.”None of the dictionaries had the words in them, and the web translators couldn’t translate the term. I did what I could by reading a Swedish anti porn blog that had the term in it, and had to best guess the meaning from the context.

I figure Assange asked them both to do something very perverted and weird, and when both refused, he tried to go ahead with whatever it was anyway.He wouldn’t take no for an answer.

As I said, in Europe the little Euro fascists women have to endure the rights of passage by bending over and taking it, to be allowed to participate in the movement. Its a very sick culture, requiring the submission of women.Where are the femino nazis when you need them? Why have they all disappeared? Apparently taking it from a leftist nationalist socialist male is OK, but if it perchance comes from a conservative male, ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!And this is the kindof nation Obama wants us to be, a socialist society more extree than Sweden. Does this explain Obama’s refusla to pursue Assange ( He is one of “us?”).

Buahahahahahahaha! SICKOS!!!!

To think that the lives of our soldiers in Aghanistan are threatened by the release of classified documents by these twisted leftist retards? I think that America should give the whole wikileak network a goodly dose of “skev kvinnosyn”! But our weenie president is just twiddling his thumbs on Matha’s Vinyard.

Welcome to the world of “Nicolai Nicolailavich.” During the Clinton years that term was searchable on the internet, now it’s toast. The secret directorate of the KGB/FSB, AKA “The Mandarin” at Langley.

"Skev kvinnosyn" can be translated as a "twisted view of women". This term is frequently used by feminists and can mean virtually anything from "he opened the door for his girlfriend, apparently he doesn't think she can open it herself" to "he thinks all women are witches and should be burned at the stakes". Because of overuse, you don't really get much information from the phrase alone.

Without getting too graphic, my inital thought was that he without permission must've shifted target while they were, as you put it, "bending over and taking it" ;)

Thanks anguish.

I get a kick out of the silence the left engages whenever its dirty laundry is hung out to dry.

You will hear very little or nothing about the women's released police statements in the press, that is if they are released at all.

Assange is a twisted little puppy who likes to bully women.
But that will not stop him from being a darling of the left. Assange is , for all intents and purposes here in our country, an enemy of the state. Curious that we have heard little of the now familiar Obama invective about Assange, now that Wikileak released ,stolen classified documents will result in an increased threat to our soldiers in Afghanistan, and a demoralization of our efforts there.. But Obama sure knows how to decry our “dirty rotten bankers” and “dirty rotten auto companies.”We can now safely conclude that US armed forces will not be included in Obama’s future community organizing schemes, other than to defund and disempower them.

“criminalize regret”

That about sums it up. This guy is a “star” now giving him a lot of play with the ladies. He was probably rude and terrible in bed. Then later he didn’t call the groupies which caused the regret to boil. I had two acquaintances who were professional athletes and saw this situation several times with jilted groupies.

Let's assume for a moment this was not a CIA op. After all, why would Obama sic the CIA on a fellow traveler like Assange?

Second, let's assume the term "skev kvinnosyn", while having many definitions, in this case means Assange is a misogynist.

I personally believe Assange is a nihilist, a sociopath, and a narcissist, so also being a misogynist is not a stretch.

What happens to people like this when they get away with something? They are emboldened.

If this theory is true, my guess is Assange may screw up again.

Assange has dual citizenship in Sweden and Australia.He also refuses to reveal how Wikileaks is funded. I do believe he may have a Sheik or two in his pocket.

Strange, couldn’t find a single source that says he’s also got Swedish citizenship. And in a Swedish article on that rape matter he was not named but referred to as a foreign citizen...

Got a source?

You will have to find it yourself as I did in the swedish press.

Use Google.se

Search:”Vad är Julian Assange medborgarskap?”

Assange likely will be charged, captured and tried for espionage under NATO treaty. He could face the death penalty.

He is also attempting to acheive Icelandic citizenship, which has no extradition agreements internatonally.I believe Obama is trying to protect him.

Good luck.
