    Re: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

    I think a lot of people are making a far bigger deal out of this than it warrants. Was it disrespectful to throw a shoe at our President? Absolutely. It would be to do so to any world leader. However, it was just a shoe. The most that is going to be made out of this is that it is going to get a few hundred thousand hits on Youtube and it will probably get a brief mention on Best Week Ever. Stuff like this is the lifeblood of internet video like Youtube. Who cares? The absurdity of it only underlines the fact that we should all be able to laugh about it and move on rather than take it seriously in any way.

    I shouldn't need to even say 'some muslims'
    That should be common sense to the intelligent that not all 1.2 billion support terror attacks seeing in US alone there are millions of Muslims and not all of them have blown themselves up
    The problem is that you'd make it an issue to say 'some Muslims' and not all Arabs. It's a bit hypocritical considering only a few hundred seem to 'love him'. It's sect status. His goal was a failure.

    Are you comparing a shoe being chucked at your President to terror attacks? How ridiculous. Come up with a better comparison
    No. Now learn to read.

    Right. And now he's remembered for WHAT he did and not WHY he did it. His goal : Fail.

    When have i ever made it an issue?

    I always make it clear not all Muslims support one thing. I shouldn't even NEED to make that clear

    Whenever anyone on this forum make a thread and label it 'Muslims ..... '
    I never jump on them for using the term 'Muslim' as i know they mean a minority within the Muslim community. You should have done the same.

    Question Re: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

Thanks for playing.
    Did all the Arab reporters throw shoes, or just one?

    Are you sure?

    He will most certainly be remembered longer than the "THOUSANDS" of disaffected journalists from around the world who have wrote damming reports about Bushes policies. A fitting end to a walking disaster i,d say.
