If he made it to Ecuador he could probably then go on to another country, such as Australia, where he is a citizen.

Where he would be extradited to Sweden.

He could sleep in Carlos Swett's garage, behind the stack of boxes of paranormal hats.

Bro, you should totally storm the Ecuadorean Embassy and snatch that bitch. You can't let him play you like that, yo!

I see what you're saying, but wouldn't that be illegal?

Ecuador granted him asylum. He is their problem now.
Update: Ecuador gives Assange citizenship, seeks end to embassy stay
QUITO/LONDON (Reuters) - Ecuador has given citizenship to Julian Assange as part of its efforts to allow the WikiLeaks founder to leave the country’s London embassy where he has been holed up for more than five years.

And don't even get me started on what you can do there with egg balancing at the equinox.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

As has been mooted over by Shermerland, this means he's "Hispanic" now. Right?

Assange gets a spanking:

Ecuador Disconnects Julian Assange From The Internet

Go to your room now, you're on a time out! :)
The government of Ecuador has cut off the Internet connection for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange inside its London embassy, saying that he was jeopardizing its relationships with other countries through his posts on social media.

Assange has been living in the embassy there since 2012, when he took refuge because of allegations from Sweden of sex crimes, including rape. He has feared that if he appeared in Sweden he would face extradition to the U.S., where he could be put on trial for the WikiLeaks leak of a massive trove of documents.

Last year, Sweden announced that it was dropping the rape investigation. But Assange is not in the clear, as NPR's Colin Dwyer reported, because there is still an outstanding arrest warrant for him in the U.K. for "failing to surrender in court." A judge upheld that warrant last month.
I think if he had just gone to Sweden he would probably be a free man by now, but who knows.
The source of Ecuador's recent concern appears to be a series of tweets in which Assange suggested that only "circumstantial" evidence suggests Russia is behind the nerve agent poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter in the U.K. earlier this month. That attack prompted the U.K., the U.S. and more than a dozen European nations to expel Russian officials from their countries.
Yeah, and Assange is not a Russian puppet. :wink:

I wonder if he's going to die in that embassy an old man?
