When presidents are giving speeches all journalist need to take off their shoes before entering the conference room:0)
Nobody builds or destroys your house, you are the one who does!
The Iraqis didn''t have the guts and intelligence to take care of their own country like we Iranians couldn't . It has nothing to do with anybody. All these comments are the signs of not being accountable...
Bravo Ahah doost,
I second what you said. Indeed those people deserve either saddam or mullahs! Shame on them....
US States department is giving him a visa for doing such a needed thing for American people! :-)
Manoucher Avaznia, you said it best. Thanks.
"published reports"? I will shake the hands of anyone who throws shoes or any piece of garment used to cover one's lower parts of one's body at Ahmadinejad, Khamenie and so on.
The majority of Iraqis resend Iranian's influence on them ( just like we do theirs). They know once the US forces leaves, those thugs want to impose their own ideology on Iraqis, discouraging women to go to school and empowering the Mullahs.
Occupation is degrading, I admit, but if it means being safe from these Islamic thugs, I take occupation as many Iraqis do.
Bush is in good physical condition and he reacted very cool. If I were Bush then I would have taken out my shoes and throw them at the Journalist too...hehehe
haha...a good one...funny...
That is why in Iran you must take off you shoes before going to a conference room.
I'm with this guy all the way. if he hates iranians, count me in. It's better than being associated with some of the people here who condem his couragous act. He did this on behalf of all those iraqi's who lost loves ones, because bunch of clowns from a foreign land decided to invade his country.
what does it say about a country and society where throwing a pair of shoes makes you a hero?
I am embarassed to be from the same country as you.
the reign of Saddam not only he would be mutilated but also his entire village would be gassed to death!?
But a more important lesson learned from event goes to show the people of the world that:
1) America can give you freedom provided you have the capacity to handle it,
2) Arabs/Muslims are un-civilizable,
2) Iraqis indeed deserve Saddam.
Who is in the possecions of thoses shoes now? The lucky one should put them on EBay and make a fortune.
Its really immaterial what Saddam or Khameneii would have done, or if he likes Iranians or not, he essentially told the world on behalf of the millions who were killed and displaced. This was a genocide and you can spin it all you like, it still was a genocide.
Only an idiot would hold a news conference and pretend like everything is rosy. This reminds of Shah on 60 minutes, at least Saddam knew he was a despot and thats that.
bessiar ziba gofti! merci
گویاتر از میلیونها زبان سخن می گویند

According to published reports, it seems that this "Hero Du Jour" holds Iranians in contempt at a level equal to that of Bush.
I can only imagine how this thread would read if he threw a shoe at an Iranian.
من به ستایش کفشهایی میروم
که شیواتر از هر شاعری می سرایند
و گویاتر از میلیونها زبان سخن می گویند
و از بزرگترین بمب ها ی عمو سام هم مخربترند.
و حتی از ترازوی سردر دیوان قضا هم دادگرتر.
When Saddam was in power the Shia Iraqi Arabs were begging for USA to topple the Bathist regime with any means necessary. Now that they are in power they have sided with Iran and are critisizing the USA government. I'm glad that Iraqi Kurds don't behave like them.
Next time I suppose When GW Bush wish to go behind the podium for a speech he either must have several armed secret service guards standing next to him for protection when someone crosses over his professional boundaries and uses it a cover for assualt either that or he better practice some more basketball playing to improve his "Catching" skills...
Anybody remembers when a camera man used the camera box as a cover to assasin the shah of iran while shah in zigzag maneuver escaped the attempt and only a bullet ripped through his upper lip without shattering his teeth and his skikk...
Damn the shah was such a good ski champ on the sharp slopy mountain full of fresh snow...sliding down in zig zag
While Bush is understandably very unpopular, whether in the U.S. or abroad, this person is hardly a hero.
If Saddam were still in power, and he had been the one standing there, what do you suppose would be this person's fate for even uttering a syllable of disagreement, let alone throwing shoes?
This person is fortunate that he is able to throw his shoes as he did. He probably will receive a light, token sentence, then perhaps write a book, entitled "George Bush Ate My Nunn Bush".
NPR is very adept at selecting the portions of audiotape that they deem suitable for broadcast.
but the guy has balls, I'll give him that! More power to him... I'd like to see more of that "standing up for what you believe in" attitude.
since you guys are very happy about this action of one Iraqi, let us see what the rest of Iraqis say about their Loving and Caring friend to the east, the Islamic Republic!!

Revisiting the Second Law of Thermos Dynamics
Has made man
In the same way that
Man has built his own dwelling
Specially the tall vertical structure
From work place to his home residence
Without constant repair and right posture
Man will face the same destiny
As his own built structure toward the bending & break down
No matter how strong his backbone is made
Therefore learn to walk straight & erect
With constant effort & self reminder
As if a doctor has inserted a steel
Inside of you from shoulder to your hip
To help you avoid back pain in an expensive surgery
In order to postpone a little longer
I heard NPR's interview with Iraqi people this morning. They talked to many, and every single person said that they supported this reporter's action and they considered him a hero asking for his release from prison.
"This is the end, you dog" and the second shoe said "This is for the orphans and widows of Iraq."
He spoke for millions of Iraqis who do not have security or future. Their country is totally destroyed .
Sad, I feel for the reporter
