Flying shoes

The Iraqi journalist who threw a pair of shoes at George W Bush was today jailed for three years.

The judges passed a custodial sentence despite both hurled shoes missing the former president, who was filmed twice ducking at a Baghdad press conference in December.

"I wanted to restore the pride of the Iraqis in any way possible, apart from using weapons," said Muntadhar al-Zeidi. "What made me do it was the humiliation Iraq has been subjected to due to the U.S. occupation and the murder of innocent people."

How many years is GWB going to serve in jail for invading Iraq illegally?

Oh that's terrible! I think he should be given a medal, for bravery!
And GW did duck the shoes!
He just did what every one of us wanted to do, poor guy!
