    All of this remind me somewhat of The Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson because of the hackers, conspiracy-fabrication, secrets being released, etc.
    Any good ?

    Well tbh,publishing things that could endanger lives is shocking,giving out information on US army bases is retarded."oh americas so evil NWO US troops massacre everyone.Oh Iraq was a illigitamate war.Oh the police searched me today under counter terrorism" well it's a bad world And we are all very lucky to be in bed with the yanks.The Nato armies and indeed British and US intelligence networks keep us safe.Trying to pick flaws out of things the Security services have done is unreasonable.Why would they go through all the trouble to lock front door when idiots are opening the back.Ooooooh they're torturing people in guantanamo.Um have you ever seen the middle east.Camp x-ray is Disney land.Oh I don't mind the expenses thing ***** as much as you want.oh jackie smiths husband what a legend.

    "No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange's antics," Palin emailed. "This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts."
    The sheer amount of hypocrisy pouring out of her mouth is insane...

    /draws comparitive line: Palin -> Assange
    /draws comparitive line: Financial attack -> Financial & Slanderous attack (coupled with treason, despite not being American..)

    My apologies, I was somewhat forthcoming.I read your link and do indeed see you have a valid arguement.I'm all for now desensitised issues to be discussed but we have little grasp on the situation in the middle east as it is.We are so bogged down in buraucracy that we can't do squat.It's just wikileaks should perhaps think of the consequences of causing a scandal about the military.It's sad but the nature of the war means it's going to get dirty.It's stupid the military is damned if they do and damned if they don't.I appologise for springing in whilst my point was irrelevant but wikileaks has been bugging me.

    Surprised the media hasn't reported it suspicious that coicidentally at this point whenhe is exposing truths, that a case is opened against him. Bail money set ridiculously high, and still being refused.

    An obvious attemt by a curropted system to try and keep him silent / question him, he won't be leaving where he is that's for sure.

    I think you should just quit while your behind.

    I've never seen someone so persistently apologise on an internet forum before.
    And I doubt anyone was offended by your post. I think we were mostly :confused: by it. But it made me :lol: tbh
    thanks, I was just trying not to seem like the **** my original comment shows me as.
    I made an error of judgement and I thought I wouldn't get flamed as bad if I said sorry.Im fairly new so I don't really want to go pissing people off.But my constant apologies r a bit sad though

    btw
    here are the charges brought against him

    " Gemma Lindfield, for the Swedish authorities, told the court Assange was wanted in connection with four allegations.

    She said the first complainant, Miss A, said she was victim of "unlawful coercion" on the night of 14 August in Stockholm.

    The court heard Assange is accused of using his body weight to hold her down in a sexual manner.

    The second charge alleged Assange "sexually molested" Miss A by having sex with her without a condom when it was her "express wish" one should be used.

    The third charge claimed Assange "deliberately molested" Miss A on 18 August "in a way designed to violate her sexual integrity".

    The fourth charge accused Assange of having sex with a second woman, Miss W, on 17 August without a condom while she was asleep at her Stockholm home."


    Remember, Woman A threw a party in his honor and Miss W brought him breakfast and paid for his ticket the day after he "raped" her...

    I believe they would not bail him not to do with the offence, but for HIS safety. The courts are allowed to disallow bail for this reason.
    Mr Assange has been refused bail because District Judge Howard Riddle made a finding that he had the "means and ability" to abscond, and that he was satisfied that there were "substantial grounds to believe if I granted bail, he would fail to surrender".

    He also said that he believed Mr Assange "may be at risk from unstable persons".

    No fixed address doesn't do him any favors, as well as safety reasons.

    I don't see why they couldn't just give him a very strict conditional bail under these circumstances.
    I guess the judge believed a 'better safe than sorry' policy was best - at least no-one can dig **** up on him whilst he's being held in the prison.

    The PayPal .api servers are apparently down too - meaning online transactions are halted.

    They've unfrozen the current donations to Wikileaks recently, I wonder with this added pressure, will they completely open the account again?

    Either way, a difference is certainly being made!
