There’s still little good news emanating from Iraq, despite the efforts of western politicians, and their lackey media, to stress how wonderful life has become there of late.
One small piece of welcome news is that Muntadar al-Zaidi, the man who threw his shoes at George W Bush – and sadly missed – has had his jail sentence cut on appeal, from three years to one year.
Muntadar al-Zaidi was Sparrow Chat’s “Iraq Hero of 2008” and the video of his heroic action will remain in the website sidebar until his release, now scheduled for September 14th.
As an aside, Iraq is still wracked by bloody violence. Sparrow Chat’s “Hot-Link” (right sidebar) is presently highlighting an excellent article on the subject by the Los Angeles Times.
Do take a few minutes to peruse it.
