    That was my favourite quote along with

    Iraq considers Sunday as the international day for shoes," said a text message circulating around the Saudi capital Riyadh.
    I should have linked the story, you would have got my drift

    Americans like Bush just that little more, if only for his impressive dodge.

    There is NOTHING in that article supporting your claim that 'Arabs' love him. A few hundred Arabs rejoiced. Yay. The same numbers that rejoiced when America got hit by 9/11. I find it funny that if this article was about 'Muslims' being happy about terrorist attacks you'd probably be the FIRST person to claim 'it's not Muslims' but 'some Muslims'. You're a hypocrite. Thanks for playing.

    By this logic, one could say "arabs love terrorism".......

He's a guy who has sent my family members to fight a war I don't believe in. I don't like him.

    However, he is still the President of what is still the most powerful country in the world. He's been the most protected man for the last 8 years for a reason. He's the CinC of our military. He's a guy who aside from all his faults doesn't deserve to be disrespected at least in such a classless manner. I don't even think he needs to be disrespected to show disagreement with him.

    We do not live in a time where dissent needs to be shown as physical savagery. If this same journalist had voiced his dissent at Bush through his work then I'd be behind him 100% but he didn't. He chose a road where his motives won't be remembered. All people will remember is that he threw a shoe. Not caring about why. I don't know why Sirdan Sirdan shot Kennedy. I don't know why Lennon's killer pulled the trigger. I don't know why some guy threw a pie at Bill Gates. I just know they did it. They didn't get their message across. All they did was put their names in the headlines long enough for people to remember them and not their motives.
    Uhh.. I think you got it backwards. If this guy would have just yelled it out then only a few people even ever would have looked at it. Because he threw a shoe though the entire world knows why he did. Im just glad the savagery wasn't all that savage. Look what the person who disagreed with Bhutto did.

    Not all Arabs obviously seeing Arabs include Christians, Sunnis and Shia.
    But some do see him as a hero, that is true.
    When and if i say ALL arabs or ALL muslims see him as a hero then you may call me hypocrite

    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

    Are you comparing a shoe being chucked at your President to terror attacks? How ridiculous. Come up with a better comparison

    Assassins, criminals have twisted minds, and surely no respect for their fellow man..
    Of course, the smelly shoe thrower did the wrong thing; its not nice; but then what he did he perceived to be the right thing at the time.. Bush is lucky that it was not a hand grenade..

    Im tired of hearing the hand gernade thing. It could not have just as easily been a gernade. They do not allow weapons into these things.

    I never said all Arabs, re read my words.
    Common sense eludes some, never will all arabs or all muslims agree on 1 thing. That is impossible
