The Iraqi TV journalist who launched his shoes at George W. Bush during his last attempt at a “Mission Accomplished” moment in Baghdad deserves the respect and gratitude of everyone who has seen W’s illegal use of US military forces to invade and occupy Iraq for what it was from the beginning. His action couldn’t have been more satisfying to witness if his missiles had hit their feckless target dead center. Let the image of W ducking them be the symbol of his administration and the sum of his legacy for a time to last beyond the end of the millennium begun so ignominiously with his coronation. George W Bush’s most successful act as President of the United States was to duck everything but the title “Worst US President Yet”.
