Still, anyone who would cheer at such an affront to an American president needs some serious training in etiquette.
Then you seriously need to hire a few etiquette-teacher. *ahem*, sorry. More than a few.
(but first, if Bush really had been a Ninja, he would have caught the damn shoes and thrown them back at the attacker)
Headline of 7 Days (not a very reputable newspaper in Dubai): NATIONAL HERO
Headline of Gulf News (what is closest to a reputable paper in Dubai) : Shoe Attack Feeds Anti-Bush Rage
There is even an article in Financial Time (who's you can't deny respectability) about the fact that, while the attack was not the best way to do it, it expressed a general frustration of the Arab world toward the american president. But the message, like the shoe, passed way over Bush's head.
There is more to that shoe than a stupid journalist, and dismiss it as such would be quite sad, and dangerous. The reaction of the Arab world to the Shoethrower is clear: there is a clear resentment against what Bush represented.
