Assange injected himself into a place where character and literal assassination are expected and accepted. There are a lot more than two sides and he has pissed off most of them. I hope he was not naive enough to believe that he will have an easy time of things. His intention may be to change the world into something else, but the consequences come from the world we have today.
Captain Renault in Casablanca: "I am making out the report now. We haven't quite decided yet whether he committed suicide or died trying to escape."
I am guessing that he will come out of all of this with his life, but in a manner that will greatly deter any future wikileaks contributors.
