BAGHDAD (Reuters) – An Iraqi reporter who hurled his shoes at George W. Bush said in the past he had videotaped himself practising the Arab insult to use against the president whose "icy smile" had filled him with uncontrollable rage.

Muntazer al-Zaidi said on Thursday at the start of his trial in Baghdad on charges of assaulting a foreign leader that he took a recording of his shoe-throwing training two years ago and had hoped to accost Bush in Jordan but this did not take place.

Does he like Obama’s arrogant smile?

Oh well that makes it all right then.

Clueless savages - this constitutes a defense?

I'd love to see Clint Eastwood “squint” at this punk.

Damn. I think this whole civilization needs Paxil or something to get that anger out.

I see that he reads and listens to leftist American media.

If it weren't his "icy smile" it would've been something else. Uncontrollable rage and Muslims are an inseparable couple.

Security is a little off in the photo. Grab his wrist and he doesn’t get attention for throwing a shoe. A quick blow to the windpipe and Shoeman loses his proclivity for shoe-throwing in a millisecond.

Reading the article carefully, it’s pretty clear to all that the shoe throwing incident was carefully planned out, or as they often say, a staged event.

Our press certainly enjoyed it.

Muntazer al-Zaidi doesn't like smiles. He particularly does not like white Americans. He hates everybody he can.

Where's that Iraqi woodchipper when you really need it!

He never should have been allowed to attend the event. He reports for an anti-American TV station in Baghdad and signed off every night with, “Under Occupation in Baghdad.”

That’s great! Guess what he probably saw as they were dragging his savage rear end out of the room? Bush’s smiling face.

As if he hasn't been punished enough, he is about to be sent down to the minor leagues of the IPSTA*...

It must have really enraged him when Bush, with absolutely no shoe-dodging training, kept the icy smile while easily avoiding his best shots.

Enjoy prison, shoe bitch!

I sure would rather see that “icy smile” than Obama’s faux Mussolini backwards head tilt.

What's with all these “moderate” muzzies lately?? One throwing shoes at their liberator, and another cutting off their wife's head. It's getting hard to tell them apart from the extremist Islamofasicsts. Looks like the religion of pieces could be undergoing an identity crisis...which would be America and Israel's fault of course.

On the streets of New York City, gunman are excused for point blank shooting murders - The thoughtful Left explain that the victim was after all foolish enough to have looked the gunman right in the eye.

The poor shoe man, he should have thrown his shoes at President Bush on this soil so that the ACLU could say it was only because of his culture, he didn’t know it was wrong, just like the Muslum who beheaded his wife.
