First of all. To the extent that Apmel is to be identified with his primatar he is a refuser of military service for any country. His solidarity is not confined to arbitrary borders made up by kings armies in the past. He early identified three wrongs in the world; nationalism, militarism and religions.
Apmel is also against secrets among the elite in any form. Be they bankers, generals or diplomats. So he applauds what Assange and WikiLeaks are doing. When it comes to Assange´s extradition to Sweden for questioning my buddy Bock has said it better than anyone. Please read this: http://bocksl.blogspot.se/2012/03/bock-whats-your-beef-with-assange.html
In the beginning of this circus Apmel bought into the conspiracy idea that one of the women accusing Assange of rape in fact is working for CIA and even helped spreading it with some comment on his friend Miso's posts on Assange. Read them all here:
Assange keeps contradicting himself in his claims about Sweden. On radio he has stated that he came to Sweden in august 2010 as a runaway from FBI that was stalking everywhere in Great Britain. He felt safer in Sweden. Of course now his lawers say the reverse, even though the situation according to several experts is that Sweden is not allowed to extradict him to USA without the approval from Great Britain in any case.
Lawers in Sweden think that the most likely outcome when he comes to Sweden is that he will not be charged with anything after the hearing. But even if it goes to trial, and he is found guilty, the penalty will be shorter than the time he has been in house arrest in Great Britain.
So when a dear friend aired her conspiracy theory to Apmel the other day he gave her this link http://justice4assange.com/
to just about every consipracy in this matter that the Assange camp wants people to adhere to when it comes to Sweden, just to let her know that he already heard it all, but personally stopped believing them. He then got this reply which really upset him! (not because of what it said about Sweden but what was assumed about him)
”i wont hurt your religious feelings ,, that sweden is the holy spot in this world”
When he showed the same link to Bock who happens to be a swedish lawer his reaction was that he was mostly disturbed about ”the way in which the two female victims are being hung out to dry and portrayed as malicious, scheming, bitches for not putting up with Julian Assange´s activity. However the case against Julian Assange turns out in the end, that is the most shameful part of this drama.”
Well said! Apmel's advice to my friend and everyone else interested is to read ALL of Bock's writing about this case:
