"This Is From Those Who Were Killed in Iraq"

In an ironic twist of fate, an Iraqi journalist greeted President Bush during his farewell tour of the 51st state Iraq by pelting his shoes at the imperial leader. Shouting, “This is the farewell kiss you dog. This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq,” Muntadar al-Zeidi, a journalist from Cairo made the bold move of throwing his shoes at the President, a great insult in Arab culture.

While Bush hailed the journalist's actions as "evidence of democracy", the near miss is a sure sign of the world's indignation at an unaccountable purveyor of massacre in the Middle East.
