The Anglosphere goes dud

As far as I know, no mainstream newspapers or magazines in Britain or the US have published the satirical cartoons of Mohammed. So we are the great champions of free speech huh? Hmmm. I guess not. I think that leaves a massive credibility gap. What the hell are we expending billions of dollars and pounds fighting a war against tyranny and dictatorship in the middle east for if we are not willing to support our own values of free speech and the right to express views that some people might find repugnant?
Next time I hear a right wing pundit taking the piss out of the Spanish or the Italians for being lamo's in the great war on terror, I'll point them to El Periodico and La Stampa.
