      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

It was laughable watching the American media try to treat this story 'seriously'...analyzing how slow the Secret Service responded (5.3 seconds!), etc...while the rest of the world's media took the opportunity to have a good holiday laugh.

 

Basically, they're gonna have to let him go; he's now a National Hero.

 

The guy was a great shot, and Bush was an artful dodger; a perfect metaphor for the end of one of our most shameful administrations. The reporter may have missed Bush, and Bush may have missed the symbolism, but apparently a few Iraqis caught it.

ya, the most frustrating thing wsa that in the interviews later, he didnt get that showing the soles of your feet is a terrible insult in that culture, nevermind throwing your shoe at him.

 

maybe the slow response by the S.S. was a purposful reaction... we can only dream.

Contrast what would have become of somebody who chucked a shoe at Mubarak, Basher Assad, Ahmadinejad...or Saddam Hussein. That, it seems to me, is a question worth asking.

It also seemed worth asking to Sean Hannity, who did so when the incident was broadcast on Fox News. It's on Youtube. You fail...again.

Mubarak: Much shorter guy, probably could have easily ducked behind the podium. Besides, he's used to ducking worse. Assad; old and slow. He would have been nailed for sure. Imadinnerjacket; short, skinny, and nervous; he probably could have cocked his head to one side without even ducking. Saddam: well, anyone could've hit that barn sized head. Plus, he's not really a moving target.

Sorry, didn't see it. But what do you think of the question?

 

Yes, I see your point. Thank God neither the US nor its allies engage in unlawful detention and torture.

Apparently the assailants arm was broken while in custody. I guess the Iraqi security folks are former NY cops.,

dunno, was he also ass-raped w/ a broom? shot 97 times?

Now the Iraqi authorities are gonna have to let him go so that they can then enjoy fighting a law suit for the arm.

 

I heard a radio story yesterday from a reporter who couldn't find one single Iraqi in Bhagdad, after looking all day, who condemned Al Zeidi's gesture.

 

Dumb and Dumber.

The results in America probably wouldn't be much different.
