    This assertion:

    Julian Assange’s only crime is that he released top secret documents that embarrassed the US and Great Britain.
    ...is simply inaccurate.  In fact, Assange has violated the terms of his bail agreement -- this is a crime, and it is for this crime that UK authorities seek to arrest him.

    As it happens, I was in the process of typing up a comment much like yours when this posted -- and yours is much better-written than mine was turning out.

    Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?

      to ensure that the Swedish prosecutor can question him in Sweden on a misdemeanor, Britain is willing to violate the sanctity of a foreign embassy, knowing....and this is important....that the rest of the world is watching.
       Britain, with embassies and consulates far and wide,  is willing to endanger their own operations over a man wanted for questioning in a misdemeanor.  It makes perfect sense.

      These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert to fleece the people, and now that they have got into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel. Abraham Lincoln
