Plea to the UK: DO NOT storm Ecuador Embassy!
The absolute WORST thing the UK could possibly do in the Julian Assange situation would be to forcibly enter the Embassy of Ecuador to arrest him.
They be in direct violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations which states, " The premises of a diplomatic mission, such as an embassy, are inviolate and must not be entered by the host country except by permission of the head of the mission. Furthermore, the host country must protect the mission from intrusion or damage. The host country must never search the premises, nor seize its documents or property."
This would open up not only their own foreign embassies around the world to attack by terrorists, but the United States ones as well.
