    My question is where is he going when he leaves.

    To this day, I don't know if those rape charges are real or it's just some stuff they made up to have him arrested and possibly extradited ? Anyone care to shed some light ?

    From what I've heard those allegations aren't true. They where just a way of preventing the truth (wikileaks) from coming out.

    "allegations that he raped one woman and molested another"
    Whats the difference between the two charges?

    Except that he's wanted for assault in a different country from where he's wanted for leaking info. The US wants him for the leaking stuff, and he's wanted in Sweden for assault.

    I really don't think the Swedes are making up charges to prevent the truth from coming out of a crime in America.

    I think a finger (y) or a penis (n), but don't quote me on that.

    Or maybe it's, "six of one, half a dozen of the other"....:oops:

    I'm still confused... Was he (allegedly) raping one while molesting the other or molesting the other while raping one?... :confused: Where there's smoke there's fire.

    I don't know. But, I could link you to numerous movies involving the scenarios you've mentioned. Then, you could work it out for yourself. Although, in the context of "artistic license", "who's the doer, and who's the done", seems to be in a constant state of flux....

    If he didn't do anything wrong then why would he be scared?

    The guy is a super popular figure, it's not like the US is just going to hold a fake trial and execute him behind the building. The wikileaks thing is already out and done so what does he have to lose?!

    And the charges in Sweden could very well be real... sounds like a more legit reason to avoid the trial.

    Our prisons are full of "innocent men", who were "framed", and in the process of, "gettin' they lives together". Mr. Assange should take his place and stand proudly among them, or in front of them in the shower, as the case may be.

    I really don't believe in rape. I was attempted to be raped by a man once. You just don't take off your clothes. You think timid he had a knife or gun?
