PM Abdullah right on shoes-throwing incident

PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is certainly right in saying that 'a head of government should not be humiliated, like by throwing shoes at him'. In my own opinion, Muntazer al-Zaidi has breached journalists' ethics.

FM Rais wrong in praising Iraqi shoes-thrower

What makes a politician mightier than ordinary folks? If they have caused agony and disharmony by vesting their power irresponsibly they ought to be subject to more than shoe throwing. PM Abdullah is merely siding his own colleagues. Maybe someone ought to throw a shoe at him too!

1. no one should throw shoes at any one. 2. reporters' job is to write reports, not to create news or become a subject in the news.
