Who knows, I think they thought he was having a tanty instead of making a gesture.

Like I said before, throwing your shoes at someone in arabic culture is a supreme gesture of contempt.

I think the dude who threw them probably knew this, but most in the audience didn't. But yeah, last-nights QnA was suspiciously pro-Howard - its usually a pretty left-leaning audience as the studio's in Melbourne.

It funny how the left wing 'peace' activists are the ones that resort to violence. Oh yeh, that Saddam guy, he was a champ wasn't he?

I think Howard handled himself well, especially with that loser Hicks, he stood by his decisions, even if they were unpopular, sign of a real leader, unlike the opinion poll driven, limp wristed party we have now.
