The whole Assange affair was a conspiracy by the Swedes, the Brits, and the US Deep State to get an innocent journalist extradited to the US where he faces charges for having published a video showing heinous US military crimes. On top of it, he published tons of emails that showed how despicable US diplomacy behaves, and how US diplomats think about other heads of states.
Since the staged smearing campaign of alleged sexual misconduct by a Swedish prosecutor and the helping hand of the British justice system, Assange saw no alternative to seek asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he lived in solitary confinement till recently until Ecuador revoked his status as a political refugee facing enormous pressure from the US government.
The question I’ve been asking since the affair evolved, was, why on earth the Australian government didn’t lift a finger to bring Assange home to Australia. It seems as if the Australian government couldn’t care less about his citizens. Or does the Australian government only US bidding? Are they afraid to rattle the US cage?
