Mr. Tovey,

Again I am not getting any clear answer from you but what I am getting is just rhetoric. When you support the American state against Assange then you just do it since you think you are doing a patriotic duty. You do not question the motive of those American diplomats who made those statements. This is called stupidity and group-thinking on your part period.

I again ask you find specific proof that Assange has committed any mistake. And I would also like you to explain this statement "But neither does Assange understand that as well; and he is willing to compromise freedom and liberty for the sake of his commercial enterprise, for it has no appearance of conscience." What is your proof to suggest that what Assange is doing is because of his commercial enterprise ? Give me specific proof and kindly do not give any of those "JESUS IS THE TRUE GOD" type of rhetoric.

Now when it comes to the question of freedom and liberty let me ask you is asking questions against the authority "Unbiblical" in your view ? If it is so then I have to say you are against the basic reason for the progress of the Western civilization i.e. "inquisitiveness".
