      You better had do some work...

      Because the military-industrial clusterfuck needs your tax money. I hear the 3-trillion dollar war ain't going well.

    Our cost

    If he is arrested on an EAW, he'll be flown to Sweden on BA or the Swedish flag carrier (SAS?) at our expense, not his, if he is arrested in the UK

    Silence the voice of Truth

    Thats what the Military Indutsrial complex wants, ie to keep the arms trade going. He is a thorn in the u know where. Rubbed up the Pentagon the wrong way with his wikileaks. They will get him in the end and I do indeed fear for this witch hunt.

    He should be offered protection by the authorities, at our cost. That would be money well spent.

    Wonder who is financing the Swedish warrants!

    Mines the bulletproof one, hence forth.

    Trick

    The Swedish sex stuff is just a trick by the Penta-gone military industrial complex to ensnare him so that he is discredited and people lose trust in Wikileaks. The ruling classes don't like it when their lies are exposed so Julian must be discredited at all costs otherwise arms profits will suffer. Look what happened to Lady Diana after her landmine work.

    Something fishy here

    Of course, these charges are completley genuine, and the American government are in no way involved.

    Honest.

    I'm sure he expected to be stung when he kept poking wasps' nests - likewise you can argue fairness, morality, and legality with them all you like too.

    I can only find a Goooogle cache from early this morning, every other attempt - via argentinian or german IPs gets me a (randomly named) "XvdfU4Rs.dms.part" instead of an index page. well they did say that there would be a new release of blurb - looks likeI'll have to start reading the Grauniad again
