Yup.I don't think the UK will invade the Ecuadorian embassy. I don't think the UK has made such a threat either. I think Ecuadorian representatives are full of shit, which is to be expected from a corrupt nation.
[Some] people seem to think Assange is a big deal. He isn't. If Ecuador want to host him in their embassy, abusing the political asylum status, let them. He's wanted for questioning and there is an order out for his arrest. The legal system cannot be disregarded just because some Aussie nut clinging to his tin foil hat doesn't wanna show up. Laws apply to everyone, that is how it works. If he really thinks he'll be extradited from Sweden to the US (which is highly unlikely that he will be, seeing how he might face the penalty of death) then, by all means, sit and wait in the embassy.
I think that the thought that Sweden would extradite him is stupid and i completely agree that he has to face the law of Sweden (people argue about this but the no infomed consent laws about rape exist in both the US and the UK too) and report for questioning.
That would be required of ANYONE in ANY nation.
Don't back down on this Sweden, everyone is watching.
We will do our best to get him to you, you can count on that.
