Bush shoe-thrower gets three years in jail

Muntazer Al-Zaidi, the man who threw his shoes at George Bush in Iraq, has received a three year jail sentence. This is on top of a beating he apparently received at the time of the incident.

If there was any justice in the world, it would be George Bush who serves the jail sentence.

This was a democratic act which harmed no one. Even if the shoes had hit George Bush's head, I doubt whether he would have felt them (ha ha - "no sense no feeling"). I suppose I shouldn't judge Iraqi affairs with British eyes, but three years seems a ridiculously stiff sentence for a man who should be feted as a hero. I would have thought that he deserves a couple weeks - tops.
