    Re: Shoes thrown at Bush on Iraq trip

    A free press is a great thing. I wonder if that Iraqi journalist would have had the balls to throw a shoe at Saddam....

    I don't know, nor do I know the motivation of why he did such a thing. However, if he lost any family member since the invasion, I would not blame him.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Not while Bush is still president; Obama, well who knows.

    Not to be mean or anything.

    Well in the Arab world throwing a shoe is a really grave insult to my understanding.

    Very insulting in Arab culture, remember when Saddam's statue was torn down. It was beaten with shoes.

    Im just more concerned over the secret service of US. They should have reacted after the first shoe was thrown. I hope they improve for the next President o.O

    Bush got some skills at "dodge"
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
