Bombs v. shoes: which are more dangerous? More punishable?
Apparently bombing the hell out of country, to the tune of nearly 100,000 civilian deaths, isn’t as bad as throwing a shoe at the guy responsible.
The Iraqi journalist who threw shoes at then-President George W. Bush was convicted today of assaulting a foreign leader and sentenced to three years in prison, lawyers said. He defiantly shouted “long live Iraq” when the sentence was read.
This is an outrage. Someone should be giving this guy a plaque, not throwing him in jail. Meanwhile, GW is back on the ranch, roasting marshmallows.
