No! Neither Australian PM Anthony Albanese nor US President Joe Biden should interfere with Australian Julian Assange’s finally facing court in the US for publishing/leaking secret American military intelligence reports, mainly on Afghanistan (where Aussie soldiers were also fighting the heinous Taliban)!
Assange is a repeat offender, pleading guilty to and being convicted of hacking into a North American communications company’s computer network in Australia in 1996 (and subsequently merely put on a good behaviour bond and fined a pittance)! So, I don’t care if there’s been/are cries of “Shame on US, and us too” against America and Australia regarding Julian Assange’s UK imprisonment and impending extradition to the US.
With Red China’s increasing South China Sea (and other area) militarism, Russia’s (and the CCP’s) increased cyber-warfare against the West and the heinous Taliban’s barbarous treatment of Afghani women and girl-children (not to mention homosexuals), this bloke feels no shame in saying:
Justice for Western renegades Australian Julian Assange and American Edward Snowden (now living in somewhat luxury in Putin’s Ukraine-destroying Russia!) should have been as swift as possible; with both Western-society traitors in Assange and Snowden facing the appropriate consequences if convicted!
