Baghdad, Iraq — A man threw his shoes at President George W. Bush and was dragged away by security officials during the president’s farewell trip to Iraq.
The incident occurred as Bush was appearing Sunday with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
Bush ducked and wasn’t hit by either shoe. Bush joked, saying that all he can report was that it was a size 10 shoe. then calmly took questions.
President Bush says the work in Iraq has been hard, but is necessary for U.S. security and world peace. He says he’s grateful he had the chance to return to Iraq a final time before his presidency ends.
The president is celebrating a recent U.S.-Iraq security agreement that calls for U.S. troops to withdraw by the end of 2011.
Since Pakistan’s independence in 1947, a central goal of Pakistani governments has been bringing an end to India’s political control of the Muslim-dominated Kashmir region of India’s Jammu and Kashmir state . To achieve this they had gone to the extent of training terrorists , spread hatred . Has this strategy worked? Definitely No.
Inflation has hit a 30 year high(25.33%) and Zardari was recently looking for cash lifeline from the US . Foreign exchange reserves fell to $8.89 billion as of September 3, down from $9.13 billion on August 30. The central bank’s reserves shrunk to $5.5 billion from $5.76 billion . With missile strikes from the outside and terrorist’s bombing from the inside , Pakistan is in a mess.
Perhaps this is one option US should consider in its fight against terrorism.
CNN’s poll of polls had earlier shown that Palin was the driving factor behind John McCain’s lead over Obama. (McCain leading 47 to 45 on 8th September). But it seems the Palin effect is over and Obama is back in the lead (47 to 44 18th of September). Palin’s favorable rating is at 40 percent, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll. That’s down 4 points from last week. Her unfavorable rating is at 30 percent, rising eight points in a week.
Economy is the fundamental reason behind this change . McCain said Monday that “the fundamentals of the American economy are strong. Probably not a smart thing to say on the day of financial meltdown. Most Americans see Obama as more capable than John McCain when it comes to handling the economy, polls show.
Also “Thanks but no thanks to bridge to Nowhere” comment has angered many Alaskans and people are learning that she had earlier supported the bridge .
Former Bush adviser Karl Rove predicted Wednesday that Palin’s star power would wear off.
“Nothing lasts for 60-some-odd days,” Rove told The Associated Press. “Will she be the center of attention in the remaining 48 days? No, but she came on in a very powerful way and has given a sense of urgency to the McCain campaign that’s pretty remarkable.”
Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Republican, is questioning whether Palin has enough foreign-policy experience to serve as the country’s second-in-command. “She doesn’t have any foreign policy credentials,” Hagel told the Omaha World-Herald. “You get a passport for the first time in your life last year? I mean, I don’t know what you can say. You can’t say anything.”
“I think they ought to be just honest about it and stop the nonsense about, ‘I look out my window and I see Russia and so therefore I know something about Russia,” he added. “That kind of thing is insulting to the American people.”
