The Shoe Incident

The video of a guy throwing his shoes at George Bush is so popular at YouTube that most of the 5 pages of most viewed videos are of this incident. Why? What's the big deal? I saw it on the news and it's not that interesting. I like what this guy said about it:

"I spent five years in Saddam’s jails," said Saman Qadir, a 51-year-old mechanic. "This journalist has to throw flowers on Bush, not a shoe, because Bush saved the Iraqi people from a bloody regime."

No one lived without fear under Saddam Hussein. No one. Worse than fear, sheer terror. How soon we forget.
