I read today that Muntadher al-Zaidi, the Iraqi journalist that threw his shoes at bush last year, is now on trial. Mr. al-Zaidi said, "I could only see Bush and feel the blood of the innocents flow under his feet, as he was smiling that smile -- as if he had come to bid farewell to Iraq and with the last support and more than 1 million martyrs". Hopefully the charges can be reduced from "assaulting" to "insulting" a foreign head-of-state, a much less severe charge. Since throwing shoes is a very insulting act in Iraq, and considering Mr. al-Zaidi didn't actually hit bush with the shoes, it seems to me there was no assault.
I can't stand bush's condescending, smirky smile either.
