Assange Granted Asylum By Ecuador

What a crazy, post-colonial world we live in.

From the NY Times:

“The decision adds to sharp strains between Ecuador and Britain. Just before the announcement of asylum in the Ecuadorean capital, Quito, President Rafael Correa said on his Twitter account: ‘No one is going to terrorize us!’ The night before, Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño said that the British authorities had threatened to force their way into the embassy, to which he responded: ‘We are not a British colony.'”
