Assange the wanker [BooRadley]

| July 30, 2010

Julian Assange seems to be one of those guys who thinks it’s all fun and games until the sites are set on HIM. He’s clearly afraid of the big, bad American government and facing accusations that he a co-conspiritor of espionage. The Telegraph quotes Assange calling the charge “serious.” Is he joking? The ACT of conspiring to commit espionage didn’t seem SERIOUS?
This guy seems to have the same over inflated ego- devil-may-care– the-rules-don’t-apply-to-me attidute that you see in any low-level criminal– like the hacker, he is.

I don’t believe for one minute this is a fundamental, idealistic issue with him. He’s a hacker. His gig is to expose or infiltrate information that someone else is trying to keep hidden. That’s what he gets off on. I say his position with Wikileaks is a hacker’s wet dream. You steal and expose people’s information, claim a philisophical reason to do it, and act like some kind of Robin Hood. When really, it’s all just video games to him. Dump tens of thousands of confidential docs–I WON!! But when the US government comes knocking at the door, Assange is ready to piss his pants.Additionally, Assange has said that “you can’t publish a paper on physics without the full experimental data and results; that should be the standard in journalism”.

Notice is not the case in the Telegraph article when he is claiming to have been informed by White House insiders of talks to arrest him. Who are these “insiders”? Does the public have a right to know, NOW?

Later he calls Kuwait a “second Guantanamo.” Where is the attribution for that.
This guy’s just another low level criminal who fell face first into a pretty good gig.

    I prefer TNR’s Beauchamp’s term “Hell’s Waiting Room” for Kuwait.

    Maybe we could offer him a “quantum of solace”…

  3. Thor says:

    Perhaps he should rest easy that the 0bama led American Government is after him and NOT the troops??

  4. PintoNag says:

    That will depend, Thor, on which part of the government is sent after him. We do have elements that may go after him that have no arrest authority.

    Anyone see the latest report from the New York Times? The Taliban is admitting that they are scouring these documents to find informants to the US and hunt them down:

    #5 CRaissi:
    I did see that report, and you can just bet that the pictures of “heads on bedsheets in the streets” will be on the internet within 72 hours.

    We might dither around and flap our hands in our uncertainties, but I don’t see the Taliban having that problem.

    21st Century Lord Haw Haw, hang him the same way.

  9. Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks

    I am sick of the sight of Assange – I hope that he gets thrown into the deepest darkest dungeon and that we never hear of him again.

  11. You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really one thing which I think I might never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely wide for me. I’m looking ahead on your subsequent submit, I?ll try to get the cling of it!

  12. It’s best to participate in a contest for among the best blogs on the web. I’ll advocate this web site!
