I support the Iraqi shoe thrower. I know shoe throwing isn’t protected speech, but I still support his action as an expression of distaste, disgust, and despair, and whatever else he was expressing. It was perfect.

How many times I have wanted to do the same thing – throwing things at the tv when dickweed is on, just doesn’t have the same feel.
I dont say that the act was a good act but considering a nation which lost some 1.6 million civilians since the invasion, this could be a reaction of someone who might have lost loved ones in this adventure of Bush govt.
Neither I am saying that Saddam was good but again Saddam was made so powerfull by these same people, as he was an ally when they needed to weeken Iran.
Pakistan had to bear a military dictator for eight yrs for his loyalty to the Bush govt. During all that period, he was called a good friend by the pentagon :(. Luckily Pakistan was not invaded to throw him out as he decided to leave by himself.
