TOPIC: Assange

Assange 2 Weeks, 6 Days ago  
At first the "Washington has to give assurance there will be no death penalty" makes it sound stupid - of course Washington will do so - but then it dawned on me that some states still DO have a death penalty and Federal Government cannot over-rule states. Clever!

For the US to renege on such an undertaking would be catastrophic.

Their reputation and standing would be in tatters.

Their 'reputation' for decades of War Crimes. EXPOSED by true journos like Vietnam Truth Teller Daniel Ellsberg's 'Pentagon Papers'.

And Bradley/Chelsea Manning in Iraq (pardoned by Obama) for informing FAI/Victim Assange of U.S. WAR CRIMINALS, co-published with the UK Guardian, New York Times, and Le Monde.

Yet, ONLY peace campaigner Assange is now FALSELY detained for FOURTEEN YEARS facing a Life or DEATH sentence for telling truths on U.S. Land of LIES. A so called 'Free Democracy' of WAR CRIMINALS much like Israel, never even charged.

Decades of Truth Tellers like JK, Malkinson, and the brave Mrs Assange with her two young boys, all need more smelling salts please nurse.

From the Barbary Wars to piracy in Somalian waters, the US has intervened. When the UN, other organisations and countries sat back.

As well as in the Gulf War, Afghanistan, Korea, Vietnam, WWII, Iraq and so many other places - where US personnel died.

Without US involvement also, the Gaza conflict will last a lot longer. Unfortunately, the US remains the peacekeeper of last resort; though not a perfect one.

This is of course true as is US involvement in "war crimes". The world is not a bad film with "goodies" and "baddies"; at the level of people, or Nations. Such thinking is child-like.

Sadly since WW2 the warmongering USA has been ruled by their unelected Military Industrial Complex for Global profits. Deviously masked by their compliant fake media as 'World Peace'.

As warned in January 1961 by ex-WW2 Supreme Allied Commander Europe, President Dwight D. Eisenwhower.
