ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
In related news, scientists anticipate another Tunguska incident centered on Novaya Gazeta’s offices.
Don’t order the polonium, they always overcook it.
They better have hazmat suit ready.
Doesn’t Assange already claim his life is in danger? If it’s not, it will be once WikiLeaks starts pissing off the Russian mob.
Beware of men with umbrellas.
Umbrellas is Bulgaria. Russia is teapots.
Hopefully the people who think that Wikileaks only goes after America and not the “real” authoritarian states will notice this.
Governments of the world are going to have to get used to the new normal. Just like file sharing, there’s nothing anybody can do to stop this.
And like file sharing, it will take a decade and they will fight it every step of the way.
And we will fight too. And we will win. :)
No empire can last forever. It would defy the second law of thermodynamics.
I know this guy on this one forum who gleefully discusses the possibility of Assange being given radium poison by some Russian assassin. I find it rather morbid to hope that that kind of thing happens, and also; doesn’t that mean you want the commies to win?
Hope Assange manages to stay alive a little longer. I swear, between the CIA, the Russian mob and the banks, this guy sure knows how to make friends.
