    Who else saw the video where that guy threw his shoes at bush? Then Bush dodged them like he was in the matrix! hahaha
    I bet the offender is hanging from his big toe upside down in a dark room somewhere getting whipped!

    That was awesome too bad he didn't hit him with those shoes! The Iraqi people were calling for his release, I wouldn't doubt he's been released. Did you see the dumb look on Bush's face... priceless.

    In the Arab world it's just about the ultimate insult. Shoes are considered unclean, and they may not be worn inside a mosque. Showing someone the sole of your shoe is a significant insult, and striking them with your shoe is about the worst you can do ...

    Bush does have great reflexes. If that reporter had done that to Saddam, he would have been executed on the spot...yet he is upset with Bush for introducing democracy to Iraq-quite ironic.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but how would you feel if someone from another country came to your country and forced you to change your beliefs, and way of life? I'm not going to say Saddam's way was better, but maybe some of the people of Iraq don't want to have democracy.

    To each their own, but the point I was trying to make was of the irony...
