Assyrians – King Sennacherib
In UK Blair had purple paint thrown at him from the Gallery at the Houses of Parliament.
Many others had rotten eggs and tomatoes tossed onto them. The deputy prime minister of UK punched, like a boxer a guy who threw something on him in protest.
That shoes incident and it is as such an incident was another item which went with the territory.
Therefore, those shoes may have made history but it showed disregards to the soldiers who gave this jerk the freedom to behave badly as he did.
Many Iraqis I spoke with today in Baghdad felt ashamed by association.
They are speechless.
They are very sorry about what happended.
