Will Sweden, a country with a history of 'pliability', now extradite Julian Assange to the U.S.A.?

You do know that the U.S. would have an easier time extraditing Assange from the U.K. vs. Sweden right?
The espionage laws for the U.K. and the U.S. are more in sync which allows less leeway to fight the extradition.
Plus the U.S. has not even filed charges (let alone an extradition warrant) against Assange yet, and likely will not until after the court martial of Manning is over. As they will need information from that case to be able to make a case against Assange. If he was actively working with Manning/advising him how to mass dump classified information BEFORE Manning mass downloaded it. As that changes the nature of what charges they could bring.
Frankly from an extradition standpoint to the U.S., Assange is safer in Sweden than in the U.K.

Yep, probably. Good old espionage. Governments usually frown upon that.

I would hope not, however they are prone to doing the unexpected.
