I think, especially considering the level of threat to Bush in that country, that:

1. Bush's security team were at least lacking!

2. The 'thrower' was lucky not to lose his life to a gun shot from the security team. They wouldn't be thinking 'oh its only a shoe, that's ok'. They will obviously take ANY threat to a President VERY seriously. However, point 1 may have a bearing on that.

There seems to be a problem with the link in the op. See the incident here:

Apparently Bush rang Daddy to tell him he was ok.

After numerous rounds of 'We don't even know if Osama bin Laden is still alive'

Osama himself decided to send George Bush a letter in his own hand writing to let him know he was still in the game.

Bush opened the letter and it contained a single line of coded message:

370H-SSV-0773H

Bush was baffled, so he e-mailed it to Condoleezza Rice.

Condi and her aides had not a clue either, so they sent it to the FBI.

No one could solve it at the FBI so it went to the CIA.

Eventually they asked MI6 for help.

Within a minute MI6 emailed the White House with this reply:

'Tell the President he's holding the note upside down.

big insult from an arab.

Why didn't he just call him a f***g w***r like everyone else?

I'm not sure I'd be too offended by being called a dog, I mean it could be referring to a nice cute fluffy dulux dog or something. That would be nice.

And as for shoes, surely some smelly socks would be better, or some old dirty y-fronts

If you're gonna hit someone with you shoes, then I find it's best to be wearing them as you do it :rolleyes:
