UK threatens to 'assault' Ecuadorian Embassy to arrest Wikileaks founder Julian Assange

EDITOR's NOTE: I am firmly convinced that Julian Assange and Wikileaks is a Western Intelligence operation; possibly CIA or MI6 or both. Wikileaks has not revealed anything that was not already known by the alternative media. The true extent of the war and banking criminality of Western powers is actually covered up by Wikileaks not revealed by it. So this whole Julian Assange drama is just show-boating, at least in my opinion. It may have been orchestrated to extend US extra-judicial powers  across the Globe so that none dare challenge its hegemony. Basically people wanted by the US for any reason, real or imagined, will not be offered protection by any nation. 
UK threatens to 'assault' Ecuadorian Embassy to arrest Assange — RT

British authorities have “warned” Ecuador that they could raid its embassy and arrest Julian Assange if he is not handed over. The Ecuadorian Foreign Minister responded by saying such a move would be a “flagrant violation” of international law.
Ecuador received a "direct" threat from the authorities in London that they are prepared to storm the Ecuadorian Embassy and arrest Assange if he is not delivered to their custody. Ricardo Patino, Ecuador's Foreign Minister, said the "written threat," an aide memoire, was delivered to Ecuador's Foreign Ministry and ambassador in London.
The letter received by the Ecuadorian Embassy stated that British authorities have a legal basis, founded in the Diplomatic and Consular Act of 1987, to arrest Assange on the Embassy’s premises.
"You need to be aware that there is a legal base in the UK, the Diplomatic and Consular Premises Act 1987, that would allow us to take actions in order to arrest Mr Assange in the current premises of the Embassy,” read the letter. "We sincerely hope that we do not reach that point, but if you are not capable of resolving this matter of Mr Assange's presence in your premises, this is an open option for us."
