Hate him or love him, President George Walker Bush is still our president and this fact should be made known to the whole world including this Iraqi mad-man; and Americans protect their own. In the composite picture right, President Bush looked slightly bemused after ducking the shoe hurled at him by this Iraqi fanatic while Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki tried like any gracious host to reach out and parry off the thrown-shoe before it hits his American guest, President George Bush.

WELL DUCKED, MR. PRESIDENT!
Icheoku asks, did the secret service detail protecting President George Walker Bush fail in their assignment by allowing the crazy Iraqi shoe-thrower a second attempt at his target, our President? The first could be interpreted as an unexpected surprise, but the second time is unacceptable considering it could have been any other more harmful weapon. Icheoku hopes that the secret service will review what happened in Iraq with a view to avoiding such embarrassment to Americans by proxy of our President in the future.
Icheoku says congratulations, Mr. President, for twice successfully ducking those filthy Iraqi shoes hurled at you by that fanatic masquerading as a journalist. Mr. President, Icheoku wants you to know that you did America proud by not allowing that Iraqi dog hit a home-run with those dirty dusty shoes of his. Mr President, you denied him his possibly greatest joy at humiliating an American President by striking a target with those his smelly shoes. Imagine an Iraqi pig's shoes landing on the head or body of an American President? Bravo, Mr. President for those quick reflexes which you displayed at that Baghdad press conference, it pays to be alert and nimble!
Icheoku sometimes wonders aloud if the Iraqis would rather they had remained under the dictatorship of "Sad-man Insane" as opposed to the relative freedom they appear to now enjoy? Even their Prime Minister Al Maliki would not have had the privilege of hosting an American President were it not for the fall of Sadam Hussein, courtesy of the Americans and President George W. Bush. For this pig to now throw his dusty shoes at George Bush is the greatest case of ingratitude for all the blood and treasury expended in liberating the Iraqis. Under the deposed Saddam Hussein, this shoe-thrower's head would have been cut off for bringing shame and ridicule to the brave Iraqi people. His daring to put a guest of the Iraqi government under fear of bodily harm, would have been treated by Saddam Hussein as a treasonable high crime felony warranting the guillotine; possibly his family, clan and community would have equally been wiped out under the deposed regime for producing such a disgrace. This shoe-throwing is inexplicable under any circumstance; and for showing such disrespect and contempt to a visiting foreign dignitary, this Iraqi shoe-thrower deserves some years in the slammer for his uncivilized behaviour. His conduct is abhorable and should be condemned by all right-thinking people, world over, irrespective of the popularity or lack thereof of President George Walker Bush. However, President Bush had the last laugh by artfully dodging the raving mad-man of Iraq's shoe-missiles, thereby denying that loser, his intended target. Icheoku says that this despicable shoe-thrower, Muntather Zaidi, a correspondent for Baghdadiya, a satellite TV channel that broadcasts from Cairo should not walk, as he assaulted an American President and a visiting guest of the Iraqi government!
