What if the shoes had found their target

I'm in the mood for video clips on YouTube. We may snicker about this scene but to the Iraqi journalist who lost his shoes, it wasn't a laughing matter. In fact, he was carrying on and on about dogs. You'd need to be a Middle-Eastern person to understand him or his anger but you needn't be a Middle-Eastern to understand whom he was referring to. But take it from me that the journalist was calling George W Bush a dog. And if the shoes had hit him, it would have been the greatest insult ever landed on a world leader.
