Americans stand for freedom of speech and democracy? Don't make me laugh.
Take for instance the beheading of Nick Berg. I've just had a look at the video and it is gruesome. And not done the way I would have expected. Anyway, this guy, an American, gets beheaded and the video is shown on the Internet.
What do the free speech-heralding Yanks do? They shut down the Website, that's what. Freedom of speech my arse.
I wonder if this was done by ICANN - more like SHITCAN it. Having seen the video I have toned down my rheotoric somewhat.
