I haven't had time to look at all the posts since the last time I was in here on Friday.
I want to say thanks to all those who did reply. Whether you agree with me or not isn't what matters. It's HOW you voice your dissenting opinion
Some strongly disagree with this mans actions and I fully understand why.
The only thing I have to say it try to put yourself in his shoes (no pun intended
). As HE sees it his country was invaded by a foreign occupier.
He's seen his countrymen lying dead in the streets and the man responsible for the death and destruction is standing right in front of him.
Throwing his shoe was probably not the least offensive thing he could have done, but it also wasn't the worst.
If I saw my neighbors lying dead in the street and the leader responsible for their deaths was standing in front of me, I'd have a REALLY hard time
keeping my composure.
I really don't know if he's been tortured or not. But I do know that he's not the only person who has said that Iraq may not have been perfect
before, but what they have to deal with now is unbearable.
Also, some people infer that he's making this all up about why he threw his shoe. I'd like to ask if you have any other alternative reason as to
what would bring a person to do such a thing.
Once again, thanks for all your replies and when I have more time I will try to respond to posters on an individual basis.
