Wonder if the "damaging secrets" will be released then...
When a person's life is at stake and people with unlimited funds/resources want him dead what is he supposed to do?

If the truth should be free to all and no man, country or organization is above this, then these documents that are being kept by Assange should also be free to all. I can not make the leap from, it is never okay to withhold truth for any reason, to it is okay to withhold the truth when trying to avoid getting punished.
If these documents are so valuable that those who would wish harm to Assange would then not do him harm to avoid the social, political, or financial backlash, then it should be granted that these are extremely powerful truths and should be released to the public for review.
I support truth.
I do not support this.

You are wrong, allow me to correct you.
Stating you will defend yourself if attacked is not terrorism, to even imply such a thing is ridiculous

The founder of WikiLeaks has warned that his supporters are primed to publish a 'deluge' of leaked government documents should his activities be curtailed by any country.
Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, is expected to appear in a UK court tomorrow after his lawyers said he would meet police to discuss a European extradition warrant from Sweden relating to alleged sexual assaults.
