Iraq: Throwing Shoes at the President Kurdish-style

In response to the recent throwing of shoes at US President Bush by an Iraqi journalist, Kurdish blogger Rasti adds the following suggestion: “If it had been a Kurdish mother launching the shoes, Bush would have easily had one shoe firmly lodged in each nostril at that close distance. When you need something done right, better ask a Kurdish woman to gt it done instead of screwing around with amateurs.”

    The bush regime is responsible for an illegal invasion, a war using nuclear weapons{depleted uranium}, the deaths of 1.5 million Iraqi’s and the displacement of 2-3 million more, the destruction of the country of Iraq, and of our human heritage in the oldest civilization on earth and where my ancestors are from. His corporate invested regime did this in the most callous and brutal manner, as the fascists that they are. bush deserves worse than having two shoes thrown at him, and worse than what he and his regime did to Saddam Hussein{hanging him in front of the world media}. He, and his regime, deserve no less than what they did to the Iraqi’s, to be ‘tortured’ and humiliated, and to be hooded, stripped naked and lead around on a dog collar, as his underlings were instructed and encouraged to do. This is what the ugly face of Fascism looks like and this is what we have all been subjected to, though most emphatically the Iraqi{and Afghan} people. Hurrah! and Praises for Muntada al Zaidi for speaking his heart and acting on his disgust for the mass murder and thief who is one, George Bush! He does Not deserve the respect of the world but to be put on trial at the Hague for crimes against humanity.
