You know, a funny thing is that the prosecutor in Sweden created this arrest warrent ONLY because she needed to hear his version of the case. So this is ONLY a warrent to get him back to Sweden to be interviewed about the case by the state prosecutor - to face the allegations against him.

What are 'the banks' going to do, arrest or assassinate every one of the 1000's of WL members willing to pick up the banner and carry on regardless?
They haven't a hope of preventing the release. Arresting Assange will do *nothing* to prevent further releases, it will only serve to prove WL point that severe corruption exists in many governments around the world.
Governments willing to toss out the rule of law and honest legal process, whenever it suits them to.
They are digging themselves deeper in the crud, and they don't have a ladder to climb out.

I would be more worried about the fact that without people like this Assange chap, the people have no way to confirm wether the people we employ to do our bidding , are doing as they are told or not. We had no idea about some of the total crap that happens in diplomacy until we heard from Wikileaks. We had no direct evidence that war crimes had been committed until Wikileaks showed us video of Journalists and a child being shot to death from a chopper doorway, with massively overpowered guns, and the wackjobs manning the cannons laughing thier heads off.
We would know NONE of that, or any of the rest of the information which his website has published. I prefer a world that has Wikileaks in it. I believe that the worlds governments should all fear this site, and re adjust and comply from now on with the most stringent standards of decency and respect lest thier characters be again bought infront of the public. I do NOT believe that diplomats HAVE to be able to talk privately , and I believe that Wikileaks will , assuming it is not the target of some devastating secret service hatchet job, be a tool for the peoples of all nations , to ensure the quality, honesty and transparancy of thier governments. As I have said before, Wikileaks should be sponsored by the UN to ensure fair play by all its member states.

You do realize that is a chargeable offense, right? Shame on you for wishing the death of anyone.
* WikiLeaks is fearlessly publishing facts that need to be made public.
* The dark days of corruption in the Queensland government before the Fitzgerald inquiry are testimony to what happens when the politicians gag the media from reporting the truth.
* (My idea is) to use internet technologies in new ways to report the truth.
* People have said I am anti-war: for the record, I am not. Sometimes nations need to go to war, and there are just wars.
* The Gillard government (Australia) is trying to shoot the messenger because it doesn’t want the truth revealed.
