Shoe No. 10

Bravo Khalid.

I almost phoned you yesterday to ask you what you thought of the man with the shoe size 10s. So much better and more effective than any suicide bombing or other lethal attack would have been. Let the shoe be he new weapon of mass destruction and symbol of rejection.

Was it Bush who claimed that at least the shoe-throwing incident showed that Iraqis are at least free, thanks to the Americans, to express their opinion, which they never were under Saddam. Oh yes - so free that the guy was hauled off immediately and bloodily by Iraqi security men and one could hear his cries as he was beaten up in the next room over the rest of the press conference.

All the best
