I know this probably won't be a popular comment, but I don't understand how anyone can call him a hero. There are plenty of people giving there lives, literally dying trying to help, and because this man throws a shoe and a political leader he is now said to be a hero. I personally don't find throwing a shoe heroic, I find it to be somewhat of ignorance. And hearing people say "I wish this guy used a gun. Or, at least, throwing knife..." & saying it was hilarious to watch. Well I'm pretty sure if he had used a throwing knife and actually kill Bush, things would be much worse than they are now. I hope I didn't offend anyone with this comment and if so I apologize.

In Iraqi culture, shoe throwing shows dissent.

The Know Your Meme episode on it kind of explains it a little. It's more heroic in the "he did what we all wanted to do, but couldn't" way.

It was funny but it is insulting the the prime minister because he let Bush into the country as a guest and because the journalist broke that hospitality he stepped over the line.

but it was still funny as hell to watch bush come so close to getting what he deserves.

I just wish he had better aim and was wearing spurrs.
