little blue dog

"a proper goodbye for a war criminal"

Muntader al-Zaidi, a 28-year-old Iraqi correspondent for al-Baghdadia, hurled both his shoes at the US president when he appeared at a news conference yesterday.

"This is a gift from the Iraqis: this is the farewell kiss, you dog," he shouted. "This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq."
