The Shoe Attack


I thought I’d share this cartoon, which my colleague Doga Cigdemoglu found on the Hurriyet Daily News website. Here is a link to a slide show of 34 cartoons about the now famous “shoe attack.”
I am a bit surprised at the response here in the United States – which has been more amused than outraged. An Iraqi journalist disrespected our president in the worst way – and we think it is funny.
Can you imagine the Iraqi reaction had an American thrown his shoe at President Talabani during his visit to Washington?
