Is this really what we have come to in our world? Today, President Bush made a surprise trip to Iraq and during a news conference with the Iraqi media, he was pelted with a pair of shoes. The reporter was threw the shoes in protest of what the war in Iraq has done to the country and the people. I am by no means passing judgement of anyone involved in the incident. I just find it disturbing and yet amusing that this is what a news conference with, supposedly, one of the most powerful world leaders has come to.
