    I actually said the same thing. It took them a little too long to get to him in my opinion. Hell, the guy threw both of his shoes and said stuff while doing it.

    TST<---------I'm surprised he got them off and bent down to pick them up unnoticed--------

    Instead of those shoes, I wish Bush had been given the boot in 2004... oh well. Iraqi dude, I feel your pain!

    The press had been searched in advance so they knew there were no guns. There's no point in opening fire on the guy and risking hitting the non-dipshit journalists sitting around him.

    The irony is that he's based out of Egypt, where he be looking at a long time in prison. The other irony is that he's Shiite and I must have missed all of those press conferences where he threw shoes at Saddam for murdering Shiites by the bus load on a weekly basis. And what does Bush do? Does he have the guy sent to Gitmo? Are Marines converging on the guy's family to arrest them and bulldoze their home?

    Nope, Bush makes a great joke can keeps on trucking.

    Another brave Shiite underlines the vast difference between the United States and the countries of the Muslem world.

    The Iraqi Priminister wants to give him seven years. I don't know, why make a martyr out of the Iraqi version of Gumby?

    Face it, it was a lot of things (perhaps even cathartic for some in a cheap,
    but metaphorical parting-shot kinda way) but it was also quite funny and I
    said as much in the Funny Vids thread:

    I'm a kid. I thought it was hilarious.

    Considering the gravity of the insult in the Arab world, I suspect most Arabs were not laughing though and were right behind this extremely serious staement.

    A Libyan friend of mine explained this shoe business to me and some Japanese friends once. One of the Japanese guys took off his shoe and mocked being about to hit him. They were good mates but the Libyan's face said it all - not even in jest pal.

    Good duck by Bush though - I didn't think he had the reflexes.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    That's quite a lofty assumption, graeme.

    tell you what, Ol' GW is a freaking cat! Did you see him duck that first shoe and get into his kung fuck you stance? Ready to pounce. Maybe that's why the secret service sauntered over to him as slowly as they did...they knew that at any moment GW would rip that suit off exposing his rippled wife-beater clad chest and pound that guy down like some drunken UFC fighter.

    It's a bit alarming though that secret service guys didn't act more, I don't know...secret servicey...maybe I've just seen too many movies...
