Thesis/Subtitle/Posit: only just law may earn respect
Concomitant: no taxation without (adequate!) representation
Corollary: no laws, wars or anything - in violation of truth and justice
Musing: IF the US (regime) has dark designs on Assange AND Sweden, say, lets them get their filthy hands on him THEN, in detested US-speak, he may well kiss his arse goodbye. No part of him will remain under his voluntary control and apart from the torture that is now de rigueur in the so-called 'land of the free,' if he's not kept full-time in solitary confinement (torture in itself), he'll share lodgings with some of the dregs of US-society (not quite all 2mio of them), but how many of those he'll be locked up with have homo-tendencies and AIDS? - Say.
Aside: At current time of writing it's just gone 19:00 in SE-Aus, and still no relevant new Assange item on AusBC-justin, so I'll just have to use what I've so far found available. But 1st, the current latest item from justin:
Sydney sheik killed in Syria rocket attack
Posted August 21, 2012 18:54:12
«He was a teacher at the Islamic College of Australia at Lakemba and was married with three children.
He was also the brother of sheikh Fedaa Majzoub, the only Australian member of the opposition Syrian National Council.
Keysar Trad, the founder of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, says sheik al-Majzoub was killed in an attack by pro-regime forces on Monday.
"People in the community have confirmed the sad news that... Assad regime soldiers brutally... shelled the pound where this man was ministering to the people's spiritual needs and they killed him," he said.»
Comment 1: This is direct evidence of foreigners flowing into Syria to attack the current legal government.
Comment 2; Note: "Assad regime soldiers brutally... shelled" - typical of the propaganda 'reported' and *actively assisted* by the AusBC.
Comment 3: Some of the worst agitators are ex-pats; they run away to make a new life, then criticise what they left behind. Not only that, but they bring their old animosities with them; recall the Serbs & Croats throwing bombs at each other's embassies in CBR. I suspect here is one such malcontent; now left his wife and family to go off on some 'excellent adventure.'
Comment 4: I predict we will next get a demonstration of crocodile tears, perhaps from Abbott, Gillard or Carr, all three or more, using the occasion to further demonise Assad.

Assange extradition from Sweden [not if] at risk of execution
«The Deputy Director for Criminal Affairs and International Cooperation at the Swedish Ministry of Justice, Cecilia Riddselius told the Frankfurter Rundschau: "We will never surrender a person to face the death penalty."»
Comment: I tried to track down the source; I found this:
Sweden can not guarantee that Assange will not be extradited to the USA
Monday, 25 June 2012
«Sweden may request that an extradited person will not get the death penalty, he will not have to be tortured, should not be prosecuted for offences other than those which he was delivered for and not to be charged before a special court. However, Sweden can not guarantee in advance that he will not be extradited, according to Cecilia Riddselius.»
Comment 1; Note: Same source of both quotes.
Comment 2: *No* outright denial, *plus* going into detail, is *tacit* admission that yes, SE would extradite Assange to the US if/when asked.
Comment 3: We now know that rogue-regimes will lie, the filthiest of lies - and why not, when their 'main business' is mass-murdering for spoil (US in Iraq, F+UK/NATO in Libya, now CIA in Syria, illegitimate-entity Israel/Zionists in Palestine for 65+ bloody years). For mass-murdering rogue-regimes, lying is less even than a bagatelle. One suspects that they lie without thinking.
Fazit: Sweden has acted like idiots over the whole thing, as has UK. There is no *serious* case against Assange; he stayed in SE for ages after his 'girl-troubles,' he was interviewed, and then they let him leave, freely. Something changed (political); SE demanded Assange's physical presence, and UK did all it could to help (see how many plods hanging around Ecuador's embassy.) We *know* that SE collaborated in WW2, had secret relationship with NATO for many years, and have already allowed "violations of fundamental human rights." Repeat, Sweden has 'form.'
We also know just how criminal the US-regime can be and often is. The US can 'promise' anything, then say "Ooops! - New/old/any excuse says we have to be unkind to Assange - It's the law!" Under the circumstances, I'd keep on going - to safety, and IF it's Ecuador THEN so be it. Better that the (living) death waiting for him in the US.
