Don’t shoot the 
messenger

I am writing in reference to an article titled “Equador’s Assange stunt” by Eric Margolis.

I agree with the author: the UK is been tested on “diplomacy” in its own land and it will be interesting to watch how English political and judiciary react to the latest puzzle. Ecuador has taken an incredible advantage in this issue and it will be interesting to watch how the Latin American countries respond to the Ecuador’s call. The entire situation now looks like a Hollywood block buster thriller!

While it is clear that Assange had successfully exposed the superpowers and most of the world leaders with his Wikileaks, it is sad to see the world’s powerful nations collude and openly shun the messenger.

It is also interesting to see how the Wikileaks team is finding difficult to manage their differences and this had practically stopped in the outflow of information from their side. If this continue for a long time, the people will forget about the leaks. Unfortunately the website will be “out of sight, out of mind”.

The message must be delivered and the messenger must not get shot in the process!
