      Iraq didn't have WMDs,
      They did.

        I'm sorry but that blog entry is not proof, and neither is it true. That blog refers to yellow-cake uranium.

        You'll find that the uranium a) was not weapons grade and b) was well known to the UN and IAEA and was being stored legally by Saddam's government. It was legally in Iraq according to international law.

        If you follow up you would have found that it did have WMDs but they weren't in the best of conditions.

          Of course they did and Saddam used chemical weaponry in Iraq and Iran. What they didn't find was a WMD threat to the UK or US. It's a bit like saying finding nuclear fuel rods in Iraq means they had a hydrogen bomb in missile form which could be launched within 72 hrs which clearly isn't the case. Don't you think the government would highlight this if it were true instead of taking the slack it has been taking for the past 7 years?

          They are after him now, its a pity really. I wonder what the outcome will be ? Whatever it is, there will be possibly a huge uproar about this in the media.

          He has become to much of a popular figure to be arrested and any charge will be treated with major scepticism from the public. I also doubt that any arrest will have much effect whatsoever and WikiLeaks will continue to run without any problems. I'd imagine people (and very important ones at that) are lining up to work for this whistle blowing organisation.

          There is a lot of confusion over what is actually happening there. I mean first the rape charge was withdrawn, then it was reissued and then assange claimed that the case didn't actually list him as a suspect. There was a really good blog post I read when the rape charge was withdrawn where the commenters had looked at the alleged victims twitter, blog and linked in accounts, it was quite interesting that she almost seemed to idolise assange. He will be arrested eventually but until the trial, I am not trusting anything.

          What makes you think that people especially reputable ones would want to work for this organisation ? Don't you think by doing so they would be kissing goodbye to their lives and respective careers :holmes:

          Well if you look at it in one way all he has done is expose the truth, which if you ask me everybody is entitled to but unfortunately our respective governments try to hide it from us. People are finally getting to read the facts and not the doctored news we are fed. Governments need to be accountable for their actions and this seems to blown the lid off everything.

          I'm all for the truth, and I must say that this guy is a legend no doubt.
