    Julian Assange has been under house arrest for over six months with no charges being filed against him anywhere. Sweden is abusing the European Arrest Warrant to have him extradited from the UK for questioning in relation to a nonsense investigation. Of course we know the only reason Sweden wants him is because the US will then extradite him from there to face a similarly trumped up investigation for espionage.

    I rather wonder if Mr Assange will amuse himself by turning over his own country to an unfriendly nation like he did America. That could hasten his extradition if he does such a thing.

    He has targeted the USA that has been nothing but a friend to Australia since we lost three battle ships and the better part of another in the battle for the Coral Sea in WWII.

    We put a thousand lives on the line for Australia, and he returned to America bad for good.

    He is a very, very bad man.

    He hasn't targeted America anymore than he's targeted anyone else WikiLeaks has released information on.

    I'm against cruel and unusual punishment, personally.

    Australians lost their lives in Europe during both World Wars, and in the Pacific too...and?

    You seem to be saying "Because we saved your arses in WWII, STFU - we can do what we like."

    Well, no you can't. And as kevin has already said, it is not just the US who has been embarrassed (as they should be) by the leaks. European, Australia, NZ - a lot of countries have been embarrassed. But being a typical egocentric US right-wing neocon, it's all about you, right?

    And what, precisely, has the US done to Mr Assange?

    Nothing.

    We're not holding him under house arrest. That's the Brits.

    We have not issued an arrest warrant for him.

    We have not charged him.

    But, as with all the fools who don't understand the actual, real damage that Assange has done, or perhaps you don't care about the damage he's done, or the lives he's put at risk, your 'right to know' and your rabid naivity drives you instead of your intellect.

    Do you know what a neocon is or do you just throw that word at people who disagree with you?

    Nobody said that the U.S. did anything to Assange personally, at least not yet. Though I wouldn't be surprised if the U.S. government was behind Sweden's attempts to extradite him from the U.K.

    A big government conservative who pretends to believe in limited government all the while promoting policies that increase the power of government. Since WikiLeaks exposes governments it's not a stretch to suggest that any "conservative" opponent of WikiLeaks is really a neocon.
