    I do understand why this man reacted the way he did. I would want to do the same thing if I was in a little room and GWB was standing up there, free as a bird, feeling as though he was some sort of hero and liberator.

    Bush should be held accountable. Unfortunately, it will never happen. Throwing a shoe is minor. But if we condone this behavior, who knows what the next person will feel free to do.

      World leaders and politicians need a healthy fear of their people.  Otherwise, they start putting the needs of the people second over their own interests or the interests of corporations.  Sort of like the situation we have today in America.

      If we had selfless politicians serving the common good, then a healthy fear would not be necessary.  Unfortunately, too many politicians give the appearance of selfish, power mad sociopaths which only respond to fear.  So a healthy fear is needed.
