Iraqi journalists apology to Pr. Bush
The video has been broadcast on just about every station. But, what wasn’t broadcast was the subsequent apologies to President Bush by other Iraqi journalists in the room.
“Thanks for apologizing on behalf of the Iraqi people,” President Bush replied in a classic show of maturity and strength. “It doesn’t bother me. If you want the facts, it was a size 10 shoe that he threw”.
Isn’t it interesting that for the past five years the liberals have been calling for a withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.
At a time when we would have left our heads in shame had the President followed their ignorant guidance, he remained strong and understood the stakes.
Now, those same people seek to cast the recent vote to withdraw troops as proof the Iraqi people don’t want us there instead of an admission that we have succeeded in getting rid of Saddam and bringing peace to the country.
Had it not been for us that man that threw the shoe would be hung by a thick rope or, at the very least, tortured to death.
Mr. Maliki went on to tell anyone listening that “Iraq no longer represents a threat to world peace and security.” For decades, the entire Middle East feared what Saddam’s next move might be.
His neighbors maintained a constant vigil and the entire world walked on eggshells hoping they weren’t forced into another confrontation. No longer is that the case.
Responding to questions about “Shoegate”, the President noted that many of the Iraqis in attendance noted that the deranged man doesn’t “represent the Iraqi people.” Since the “Iraqi” man was a journalist for a station in Cairo, it speaks volumes.
It’s also proof that Iraq if truly now a free society, though threats of violence are not to be welcome in free societies.
