Iraq Shoe-Thrower released

Muntadar al-Zaidi who threw a shoe at former US President Bush, has been released.  The act made him a hero in the Arab world and beyond.

Let’s reflect on that a moment. Under the rule of the dictator Saddam Hussein who is no longer in charge thanks to Mr Bush and other western leaders, had he done the same thing to Hussein, does anyone want to take bets as to what would have happened? Perhaps he would have been shot immediately and his family shot shortly thereafter?

The fellow attempts to physically assault a leader of the free world and what happens?  A jail sentence and how he’s out and about to enjoy his popularity! Come to think about it even the Russians would have sent him of to Siberia for the rest of his days.

We’re getting soft and we WILL regret it.
