Who's afraid of Julian Assange of WikiLeaks? Everyone

Anand Soondas, TNN Nov 6, 2011,

I don't know if has met But if the two do bump into each other sometime in life— unlikely as that may be - they'll have a lot to crib about. There were no high-fives for Liu from most world leaders as China slammed the Nobel peace prize winner for talking freedom and liberty. They have gone quiet on Assange, too, as the US and its friends come together to hunt a man already labeled a terrorist by Sarah Palin.

Just as everyone, including India, held back their congratulatory messages to Liu, serving an 11-year-sentence for drafting and circulating an online petition that called for the recognition of human rights and democracy in China, the other countries— Brazil, Russia, most of the Asian nations, the Arabs and Africans — will in all probability follow the pattern of silence on Assange.
