Just want to "THROW" this out there. In regards to the bush shoe throw

I came across this article at CNN.com today, and remembered the large thread that was on these forums about a month ago in regards to the shoes thrown at president bush. 

Look what these Iraqi's did for that man- www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/meast/01/29/iraq.shoe.monument/index.html

    They really love that man..............I wouldn't even have bothered personally, and I am not certainly an admirer of GWB.

    It was unveiled at an orphanage so this quote sort of made me chuckle:

    Bush failed America with the shoe throw business, he let a shoe touch the American flag..he should have been protecting it! =P

    While I don't agree with throwing a shoe at a world leader, the simple fact that this even took place goes to show how much has changed in Iraq.  Had this happened in 2002 under Sadam the only thing that man would have gotten was an unmarked grave.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." - John Stuart Mill

    Trade in material assumptions for spiritual facts and make permanent progress.

    Dodging that shoe is about the only thing he is going to be able to dodge once history is done with him.

    Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!

    Actually I think the worst is behind Bush.  I think in 10 or 20 years he'll be remembered as the man who got us into Iraq and gave us a military staging ground in the middle east

    It will be a while though before people stop comparing future presidents to him though.  Good or Bad.

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

    "I did take the shoe down immediately and destroyed it, and I did not ask why,"

     

    Think visions of dismemberment crossed his mind briefly?

    From the article on removing the momument:



    "The head of the Childhood organisation, which owns the orphanage, said she had been told to remove the monument immediately by the Salaheddin Provincial Joint Coordination Centre. "


    Well, I'm glad to see that Bush has successfully sown the seeds of democracy in Iraq as evidenced here, and it appears as if "democracy" will last for a long, long, LONG time in this country, well worth the 4,000 American lives lost there. So nice to see the Iraqi parliament and President standing up for rights of the people to free expression there after the long struggle against censorship and oppression under Saddam.


    Not.


    If these morons can't figure out that THAT is the very essence of democracy, they haven't had very good teachers and don't deserve it.
