Bush ducks shoes on farewell trip to war zones

President Bush is heading home after a tour of the war zones that have dominated his presidency—a farewell visit defined less by triumph but by the frustrations that prompted one Iraqi reporter to attack him with his shoes. As he addressed a news conference in Baghdad, an Iraqi journalist flung his shoes at the American leader and called him a "dog."....
what is ur opinion? is the journalist wrong or right? and what do u excepct to him (guanatanamu)?

And Bush said that he didn't accept it as an insult against himself. It seems he is accustomed to have shoes to his face Wink

I love this guy,

Mr Maliki wherer ever you are, can you please collect some shoes from me. throw some at Mr donald, and some more at bush as well. Cool

1000,000 Iraqian died since the first American soldier put his foot on Iraq !!

wrong figures, the most numbers suggest 100,000+ people and not a million.

An estimated 60% of the killed are due to suicide bombing and other masccars. This is mainly targeted at shia muslims.

Estimated 7000 people killed in Iraq were forign "insurgents". 10000 were Iraqi police men and other security personals.

But yeh, America is resposible for most of the dead.

I didn't realize Random Task was an Iraqi journalist.

 

Who throws a shoe?  Honestly!

 

 

 

...I use bad humor to deal with bad situations.   I think the journalist should not be punished, and I think Bush should just go away and let us fix his mess.

Bush has a great response against such a fast throwing shoes. So I think he could be a great goal keeper on a football field. I’d recruite him into my player list if he also has a good jumping, reflex, handling skills. U ‘know these days a good goal keeper is rare.

regardless of his target, the journalists actions were probably criminal.
