Do you honestly think that is what this whole thing is really about?
Lets go through some of the arguments people are constantly bringing up.
Let's start with "going to the US" thing. Why is it more likely that he will be sent to the US instead of Britain, they both have extradition agreements with the US. One incident where Sweden sent two egyptians without a trial to the US keeps being brought up, perhaps it'd be good to remember that it was an incident because the courts were _not_ involved, here, they are.
Oh, and Sweden cannot extradite him if death penalty is a potential punishment.
"It was a rape, its not a rape in country X, the case was dismissed, politically motivated blaha blaha"
Shall we let the courts decide, or was anyone there and can give a definate answer on what happened that night? On the one hand, people want justice, on the other, this should not apply to the women who might actually have been assulted.
"Ecuador is brave" -- yea right. At least the president is for free speech, as long as it agrees with him that is. Julian Assange calls him a brave man, what a load of crap. You simply cannot be for free speech and full disclosure, and the think the president of Ecuador is a great man.
"They offered video-links, interview in embassy etc etc etc"
If you commit a crime in Sweden, you are interrogated and tried in Sweden. This is the law, and Julian Assange should definitely not be given special treatment.
"They wont guarantee he isn't going to be sent to the US" -- No, because Sweden cannot guarantee that since they have an extradition agreement with the US, just like Britain cannot guarantee that either. He however seemed perfectly fine with being in Britain until now.
The worst thing that can happen to Mr Assange is that he is sent to Sweden, interrogated/tried and [sentenced or released], and the US keeps on not giving a shit.
