Good for him. The government that doesn't want all their dirty laundry aired is getting exactly what they deserve; they're making him a martyr.

Sexual predators like him need to be removed from the public for the safety of women.
Liars who slander others and make false or unsupported claims should be removed from bulletin boards like this one.

Well, if the deal is really true, which I doubt as the guy has no biographical history to fill 350 pages, actually Julian Assange would get a five-figure taxable advance from the Publisher, and then about 6% taxable royalties on all book-sales. So he would have to sell about 22,500,000 copies, for a net $1.3 MM. which he would have to share with the other 2 Wikileaks stakeholders partners! The about $500,000 advance would pay, as intended for part of his projected legal fees, extradition from the U.K. to the Scandinavian authorities, and then the fun starts, when he is remanded to custody in the U.S.!? "Deng Zhenjiang, China #33"!!

WELL KNOWING THE UNITED STATES JUDICIAL SYSTEM, HE CAN EXPECT THE SAME TYPE OF "JUSTICE" THERE AS O.J. SIMPSON.

Clarification of my #14 post: Perhaps the most incendiary aspect, at first glance of Australian citizen Julian Assange''bragadocio' in releasing the last batch of Defense Dpt. documents on Wikileak, whence our ally Saudi Arabia where nearby we have a Military/Navy base, wanted during the G.W. Bush 2001-2008 Administration a concurrent with Iraq, it seems 'invasion' of Iran, to prevent it from developing nuclear weapons.
*Well it so happens that the Saudi Arabian Shia {Shiite}, 15 % is the minority Muslim sect there. For a long time the Shia have suffered discrimination in politics, economics, culture, and religion...On Aug. 1993, of the 60 members of the new royally appointed Saudi Advisory Council, only one is Shia...no Shia can serve as ambassa-
dor..."

Well it also happens to be true that the religious sectarian Muslim majority in Iran is Shiite {Shia}!!
Long ago I have made the analogy between fundamentalists Sunnis, and progressive Shiites,
as between Catholics, and progressive Protestants! So on further analysis, and Iran's long tradition of Otterman Empire both liberal arts, and sciences contributions, it's no wonder that Iran, with virtually all it's dwindling oil reserves, now going to China, India, Taiwan, South Korea for both transportation fuels, and petrochemicals raw materials/finished goods wants to build Nuclear plants using it's own Scientists!
Well I also see the strategic requisite for monitoring it's Pu239, U235/U238 fractionations, as long as there is no peace agreement between Israel, West Bank, and Gaza Palestinians! A pity, as Iran can be Israel's best friend! That is what I'm told by some educated American Iranians!!

Who was it that America ? No, it was an ominous cracked devil's chick. Soon enough that ominous devil's chick shall be brought to justice and once again the decent people will reclaim their present time and will reclaim their future.

Forget Assange and his $1,500,000 corporate book deal (some rebel, what a sell-out), instead read a book that’s really been BANNED like “America Deceived II” by E.A. Blayre III.
