On Shoes, Bush the Evil, and the Iraqi People

So, by now, we’ve all seen the video of an Iraqi reporter throwing his shoes at President Bush during his last visit to Iraq. Apparently, that’s a high crime among Muslims.

What did Bush do? Joked about it.

I get a couple of things here:

As a Iraq veteran, I get offended when people tell me that we’re “wasting” time/resources there. Last I checked, offering freedom-as vague of a concept as it is-to a people who have not experienced it (in recent history)-didn’t really qualify as a “waste.” So, to see one of the citizens of the country that I (yeah, us Navy guys had a hand in it too!!) helped to liberate essentially give the US the finger…well, it does kinda piss me off.

Flipside is that I can imagine what Saddam’s response to something like this would’ve been…and I’m encouraged that John Wilkes Boot feels he can express his opinions without running the risk of his/his family’s untimely death.

As Obama would’ve said, that’s change you can believe in.

  1. No enemy likes being invaded and occupied, especially when that country happens to be smack in the middle of Islamic terrorist nation-states. Hussein was a WMD wielding, mass grave-filling, dissent-squashing megalomaniac. Some people miss that but then, there’s some Russians who miss Stalin, too.

    It’s amazing how those responsible for making Iraq a better place in the process, are held in contempt instead of praise for enabling an environment where this shoe-tossing idiot won’t be disemboweled and left on his family’s doorstep.

    BTW: This ‘journalist’ moron claimed to have been kidnapped by allah-worshiping assholes, beaten, questioned, and subsequently released:

    As expected, the leftists along with their Islamo-nut counterparts are gleeful, and the asshat Keith Olbermann will probably devote an entire “Countdown” program to the shoe throwing idiot, dubbing him The Best Person in the World.

    That’s alright. After eight years of anti-America, anti-Bush lunacy, turn about is fair play.

    Just wait and see what happens when Barack Obama is forced to dodge more than just a couple of shoes.

    With all the corruption surfacing even before he takes office, it’s already happening.
