Iraqi shoe-thrower honored with monument of his deed

You gotta love it! The Iraqi's are right-on with this testament to al-Zaidi. Actually, I expect more to go up in other Arab countries. Dubya isn't popular with these people because he never treated them with respect.

A statue built for Iraqi journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi, who hurled his shoes at former U.S. president George Bush, is seen in Tikrit, 150 km (95 miles) Baghdad, January 27, 2009.

An Iraqi town has unveiled a giant monument of a shoe in honor of the journalist who threw his footwear at former U.S. President George W. Bush.

The letters on the sign reads "Muntazer is fasting until the sword breaks his fast with blood, silent until our mouths speak the truth". Picture taken January 27, 2009.
