The ambassador is telling the president what the options are and they will be these.
(1) Leave him in the Embassy for a year and entreat the British to let him go to Ecuador or Australia.
(2) Move him out of the embassy under guard, shooting back at British police, and take him to a private helicopter which goes to France and a normal flight that goes to Ecuador.
(3) Let the British arrest him at the front door, or shoot him at the front door, and thereafter see reports that he was beaten to death in an ‘incident’ in a British gaol, or a Swedish gaol, or hanged himself in his cell.
What they should probably do is (1) and conduct, and ask us to conduct, investigations into who the accusing women are and whether or not they are currently being supported, and richly paid, by a right-wing foundation. If they are, they should be treated with the same suspicion as the provocateurs Ashby, Pyne and Kathy Jackson and Assange brought home to Australia and the women invited to testify here before a Senate committee.
These are high stakes now. If Assange is shot at the front door of the embassy or killed in Sweden by the kind of people who killed the equally outspoken Olof Palme in 1976, and the equally outspoken Stieg Larrson, author of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, before its publication in 2005 it will bring down the Tory government there and ruin the last chances of the Labor government here, who failed to protect and plead for a hero and protected instead and pleaded for a heroin smuggler in Bali. Assange will be credited with beginning the Arab Spring and liberating millions of souls from tyranny and become a figure like Che Guevara on T-shirts forevermore.
And if we let him die it will be a pity.
