In a harshly worded statement , Rafael Correa, the President of Ecuador, stated that the United Kingdom would be suicidal to enter his embassy in London to extract Julian Assange. Huh? Has Ecuador taken leave of its senses; don’t they remember the Falklands?
Language of this sort is not helpful in any context. It encourages radical elements to live out their warped fantasies and actually diminishes any message that Julian Assange had hoped to achieve by fleeing to the Ecuadorean embassy.
