Two Shoes for Brother Bush
18 December, 2008
George Bush, the US president, has had a pair of shoes hurled at him at a press conference during his last surprise visit to Iraq before leaving office in January.
An Iraqi reporter called Bush "Good bye kiss, you dog" and shouted out "this is the end" at Sunday,s news conference in Baghdad, before throwing his shoes at the US leader.
Bush, who had been giving a joint press statement with Nuri Al-Maliki, the Iraqi Prime Minister, ducked behind a podium as the shoes narrowly missed his head.
The incident will serve as a vivid reminder of the widespread opposition to the US-led invasion and occupation of Iraq - a conflict which has come to define President George Bush,s presidential legacy.
Do you think that throwing shoes at Bush symbolizes Iraqi’s hatred toward his polices and is justified?
What is the reaction of Arab world and the world at large?
Did the 29 years old journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi speak the heart of many people around the world?
