When presidents are giving speeches all journalist need to take off their shoes before entering the conference room:0)


Nobody builds or destroys

Nobody builds or destroys your house, you are the one who does!
The Iraqis didn''t have the guts and intelligence to take care of their own country like we Iranians couldn't . It has nothing to do with anybody. All these comments are the signs of not being accountable...

Bravo Ahah doost,

I second what you said. Indeed those people deserve either saddam or mullahs! Shame on them....

Manoucher Avaznia, you said it best. Thanks.


Kaveh, would you be kind and point me to some those...

by Ostaad on

"published reports"? I will shake the hands of anyone who throws shoes or any piece of garment used to cover one's lower parts of one's body at Ahmadinejad, Khamenie and so on.


The Majority

by Aboli (not verified) on

The majority of Iraqis resend Iranian's influence on them ( just like we do theirs). They know once the US forces leaves, those thugs want to impose their own ideology on Iraqis, discouraging women to go to school and empowering the Mullahs.

Occupation is degrading, I admit, but if it means being safe from these Islamic thugs, I take occupation as many Iraqis do.


if I was ....

by anon582 (not verified) on

Bush is in good physical condition and he reacted very cool. If I were Bush then I would have taken out my shoes and throw them at the Journalist too...hehehe


Prety good...funny...

haha...a good one...funny...


That is why

by Anonymous321 (not verified) on

That is why in Iran you must take off you shoes before going to a conference room.


to Kaveh Nouraee

by Dehati (not verified) on

I'm with this guy all the way. if he hates iranians, count me in. It's better than being associated with some of the people here who condem his couragous act. He did this on behalf of all those iraqi's who lost loves ones, because bunch of clowns from a foreign land decided to invade his country.


throwing the shoes

by ahvazi on

what does it say about a country and society where throwing a pair of shoes makes you a hero?


to Ahah Doost

by Dehati (not verified) on

I am embarassed to be from the same country as you.


Had this guy done this during

by Ahah Doost (not verified) on

the reign of Saddam not only he would be mutilated but also his entire village would be gassed to death!?

But a more important lesson learned from event goes to show the people of the world that:

1) America can give you freedom provided you have the capacity to handle it,
2) Arabs/Muslims are un-civilizable,
2) Iraqis indeed deserve Saddam.


The Famous Shoes.

by jkondori (not verified) on

Who is in the possecions of thoses shoes now? The lucky one should put them on EBay and make a fortune.


The shoe that was heard around the world

by Alborzi (not verified) on

Its really immaterial what Saddam or Khameneii would have done, or if he likes Iranians or not, he essentially told the world on behalf of the millions who were killed and displaced. This was a genocide and you can spin it all you like, it still was a genocide.
Only an idiot would hold a news conference and pretend like everything is rosy. This reminds of Shah on 60 minutes, at least Saddam knew he was a despot and thats that.

The Guy Hates Iranians Too

by Kaveh Nouraee on

According to published reports, it seems that this "Hero Du Jour" holds Iranians in contempt at a level equal to that of Bush.

I can only imagine how this thread would read if he threw a shoe at an Iranian.

Journalist's action was wrong

by Kurdish Warrior (not verified) on

When Saddam was in power the Shia Iraqi Arabs were begging for USA to topple the Bathist regime with any means necessary. Now that they are in power they have sided with Iran and are critisizing the USA government. I'm glad that Iraqi Kurds don't behave like them.


Next Time...

by Abol Hassan Danesh, Ph.D. From UCR (not verified) on

Next time I suppose When GW Bush wish to go behind the podium for a speech he either must have several armed secret service guards standing next to him for protection when someone crosses over his professional boundaries and uses it a cover for assualt either that or he better practice some more basketball playing to improve his "Catching" skills...

Anybody remembers when a camera man used the camera box as a cover to assasin the shah of iran while shah in zigzag maneuver escaped the attempt and only a bullet ripped through his upper lip without shattering his teeth and his skikk...

Damn the shah was such a good ski champ on the sharp slopy mountain full of fresh snow...sliding down in zig zag

This Person Only Spoke For Himself

by Kaveh Nouraee on

While Bush is understandably very unpopular, whether in the U.S. or abroad, this person is hardly a hero.

If Saddam were still in power, and he had been the one standing there, what do you suppose would be this person's fate for even uttering a syllable of disagreement, let alone throwing shoes?

This person is fortunate that he is able to throw his shoes as he did. He probably will receive a light, token sentence, then perhaps write a book, entitled "George Bush Ate My Nunn Bush".

NPR is very adept at selecting the portions of audiotape that they deem suitable for broadcast.

a hero might be a bit of a stretch

by American Wife on

but the guy has balls, I'll give him that!  More power to him... I'd like to see more of that "standing up for what you believe in" attitude.


For the shy Supporters of IRI!!

since you guys are very happy about this action of one Iraqi, let us see what the rest of Iraqis say about their Loving and Caring friend to the east, the Islamic Republic!!

Revisiting the Second Law of Thermos Dynamics

Has made man
In the same way that
Man has built his own dwelling
Specially the tall vertical structure
From work place to his home residence
Without constant repair and right posture
Man will face the same destiny
As his own built structure toward the bending & break down
No matter how strong his backbone is made
Therefore learn to walk straight & erect
With constant effort & self reminder
As if a doctor has inserted a steel
Inside of you from shoulder to your hip
To help you avoid back pain in an expensive surgery
In order to postpone a little longer
The Inevitable!
The Inevitability!

--Hassan Danesh


He's become the national hero

by IRANdokht on

I heard NPR's interview with Iraqi people this morning. They talked to many, and every single person said that they supported this reporter's action and they considered him a hero asking for his release from prison.



He said something like

by Toofantheoncesogreat (not verified) on

"This is the end, you dog" and the second shoe said "This is for the orphans and widows of Iraq."


In one action

by Abarmard on

He spoke for millions of Iraqis who do not have security or future. Their country is totally destroyed .

Sad, I feel for the reporter
