The Iraqis should just throw us out of their country and take their case to the UN or World Court. Throwing things at the US President is not likely to gain them any favor within the US, and it is not likely to help their cause for a peaceful, quick end to this occupation. Jim
To people outside of the Middle East, this is just a silly shoe tossing, something reserve for bad comedians or other entertainers.

And there is the foundation of the Bush Legacy, nicely wrapped up in a single sentence. CLUELESS as he started the Iraqi quagmire and CLUELESS as he leaves it.

The Bush Legacy can be summed up by "I DON'T KNOW..."

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I think we all are talking and worrying about something trivial. I think Bush got off easy. He should be indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity. I believe he would be found guilty by every court in every country.

It would take much more than a shoe to penetrate this particular person's wall of denial. Much more.

And nobody can deny it, as it is captured on a video.

President Bush is excellent at ducking when shoes are thrown at him.

I suspect Rovian Theatre.
