Freedom of speech - when implications are understood

in response to reader comment: about the jyllands-Posten cartoons

I agree with Freedom of Speech and all of that, but when a paper like this could care less about the any implications of it's publication, then they should be made to pay the ultimate price. Shut them down ! The publication of 'cartoons' as they are called, have caused deaths, riots, and mayhem across the Muslim world. And it's not going to stop there ! The Government of Denmark needs to step in and take ownership for the situation at hand, along with taking action on those responsible for this embarrassing situation.
