Assange is a hero who should be granted protection against the hatred and vengeful claims of the world's superpowers, especially the U.S.

ANYONE believing in more transparency in our governments and leaders MUST support Assange.

EVERY president we wind up with whether Dem or Rep promices transperancy in gvm't and none ever do it.

The CIA (shadow men) operate with impunity and break every international law there is.

Assange is a hero because he exposes it all which is why the USA wants him eliminated.

Oh but on the contrary it is people like you who in action hate America .

"The Cubans have proven repeatedly that they cannot govern without turmoil and rampant corruption. The once pristine Miami metropolitan area, rich in American history, is much too important to relinquish to those only interested in enriching themselves and giving nothing in return.

To give up control of Miami to immigrants who could care less about what being an America represents is nothing short of tragic—something we all need to remember next election"

The CIA should send paramilitaries to wherever this arch criminal ends up and unceremoniously dispose of him. The world would be a far better place without Mr. Assange in it. Also, he's a rapist.

@faith, so you think Julian is more dangerous for soldiers than bush? who has sent so many young men to the sword of sacrifice for corporate gain, and americans thnk muslims are brainwashed, how deluded can you get, hateful american foreign policy is the biggest threat to the free world, ww2 ended years ago, always picking on crappy little countries now, 4million vietnamese killed, i could go on and on, americans are the biggest threat to americans, how many murders a minute, i forget, pull the flagpole out of your butt, cant even pay for garbage collection in some states, emulating rome is reaping the same consequence, pax romanus is now pax americanus, which is no peace at all, just empire builders using lies and violence, thriving on the hate and ignorance of the masses,those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.

No surprise that you're advocating assassination and destruction of transparency and free-speech rights, Faith. You've always been quite the fascist, haven't you?:)

Faith like the Cuban fascist rtk is to stupid to realize that people like Assange warn us of when the left and right lie to us and distort facts or simply operate outside of the law.

Assange has spoken out about the Bush and Obama administration he goes after both sides equally.
Faith like rtk are low IQ morons who can't grasp that "our" gvm't is not always acting like "our" gvm't.

Faith and rtk prefer to live in darkness because to stupid to want to see the truth.

"corporate gain"? Grow up. Assange is a rapist and a traitor. He should face the death penalty....with or without a trial.
