|When Julian Assange decided to publish a bunch of classified US secrets, he was threatened with legal action and miffed generals. When he announced that he planned on doing the same to Russia, the reported comment was a little more direct.|

Unfortunately for Mr. Assange, if Russians keep talking like that, they probably won't even have to load up their poison umbrellas, bake a batch of polonium cookies, or sight in their Dragunovs. Any other country who has a reason to be miffed at Assange now just needs to copycat a Russian hit and everyone will believe it was just Putin going back into the field because he had a nostalgic fancy for a little wet work.
