George W Bush got a size-10 reminder of the fervent opposition to his policies when a man threw two shoes at him - one after another - during a news conference with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. 1. US President George W. Bush speaking at podium, standing next to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki 2. Zoom out, Bush shaking hands with al-Maliki 3. Bush starting to speak, man identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, correspondent for Al-Baghdadiya television, stands up and throws shoe at Bush, Bush ducks. Pull back wide, man throws second shoe, Bush ducks. Security hold man on the floor UPSOUND: shouting 4. Slow Motion sequence of man throwing shoes STORYLINE His legacy forever linked to an unpopular war, President George W. Bush visited Iraq under intense security on Sunday and declared that the long, hard conflict was necessary to protect the United States and give Iraqis hope. But he got a size-10 reminder of the fervent opposition to his policies when a man threw two shoes at him - one after another - during a news conference with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. This is the end," shouted the man, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadiya television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt. Bush ducked both throws. Neither leader was hit. In Iraqi culture, throwing shoes at someone is a sign of contempt - Iraqis whacked a statue of Saddam Hussein with their shoes after US Marines toppled it to the ground after the 2003 invasion. "All I can report," Bush joked after the incident, "is a size 10." The US president visited the Iraqi capital just 37 days before he hands the war off to President-elect Barack Obama, who has pledged to end it.

This man is a damn criminal I think people like him had a part in the killing of many black civil rights leaders in America. I hope his kids dont take after him, if it wasnt for the mass amount of money he has he would be sitting in a jail. Millions of people have died in iraq all for what the country is worse than it was before he he went in claiming he was going to fix it. Shame on all the people who voted for this man. I asked his daughter for a date and I could not even eat salad in the stores becuase it was making me sick. Never vote for the republican party they are all liars and trump is damn liar too and racist too. People told me they were after oil im starting to believe this and that's a shame because america has a lot of oil that they are not using. Millions of people died trying to protect the lives of jewish men like mr bush in WWII and now he is mistreating people all over the globe. if it wasnt for the laws he is destroying millions on jews would still be enslaved in death camps in Europe members of his family too. Will you stop telling people lies and wasting tax payers money Americans have rights too.

I have to admit Bush was quick, almost like a boxer in the first shoe. He got complacent on the second shoe and the throw would have got him if the throw was better. I wish the shoe would have got him. I despise the Republican establishment almost as much as the Democratic establishment. Of course, if Bush was more like Andrew Jackson or Trump, he would have taken off his shoes and thrown them at the raghead.

In the middle east the most disrespectable thing you can do to someone is show the bottom of your feet. So he does that by throwing shoes.

oh please. like saddam was an angel. things are worse in iraq, agree, but saddam would have funded AQ even more. What did osama want? for US forces to leave SA. Why were US forces in SA? to protect SA and make a no fly zone over IRAQ and protect against Iran. So following the trail, who could have paid OBL? Who benefits from OBLs actions? Following Iraq, Iran supports shias and wins in Iraq, meanwhile Obama and company create ISIS to topple the rest of these regimes that threaten the Saudis. I say, fuck Saudis, fuck Iraq and fuck OBL. Lets leave, and see how they fuck one another. Because the people of Araba and Persia still hate America regardless of the fact America protected Saudis.
