I haven't written here in a while, but what I saw today is shocking enough to shock anyone out of blogoslumbers. I'm ofcourse talking about, the shoe thrown at GW yesterday during a visit to Iraq.
I didn't think it was ever possible for the Iraqi people to stoop to a new low, but the traitor, coward, selfish bastards not only managed to conquest new grounds in their eager quest for self destruction, but also managed to drag the rest of us along.
As an Arab and Muslim, I'm completely ashamed at this display. Our tradition & religoun holds immense respect and great pride in how we treat our guests and this was a completey disregard to that.
The Iraqi's show us once again their true colors. We are once again faced with the bitter reality of the mistake that giving the Iraqi's speaking floor was. The speaking floor that remained unused through foreign occupancy, governmental corruption, the masquerade that the trial of the entury was, and the sectatorial laden presidential assasination that followed. The Iraqi's have forfeited their political podium. They not only didn't have the right to use it, but when they did, they used it shamefully. Disgustingly. Foolishly. Ignorantly. Ignorant to how much more powerful and hurtful words are compared to footwear.
Saddam Hussien is rolling in his grave as we speak. Ghandi is rolling in his grave as we speak, and the rest of us can't wait to join them.

gSo when the man who launched a war under completely false pretenses, a war that killed tens of thousands of their people, sent millions fleeing to other countries, caused instability that paved the way to terrorism, stole their oil, and continues to glorify this invasion that is considered the worst political move in centuries, when that man shows his face in your country, what are you supposed to greet him with? Roses?? Believe me, a shoe is too good a thing to be thrown at his face. And what political podium are you talking about? Do you think the iraqi people have a say in anything??
So take that apology of yours and shove it.

gIraq is occupied only because the Iraqi's made it possible. They have a president who approves of the occupation and if you don't know who he is, he's the guy that's standing next to Bush when the shoes were tossed.
Where's his shoe ?
I will not agrue with you. You clearly don't know how politics work.
