I hope they threw them in pairs, so they can be donated.

It would be the only worth while thing these slugs have accomplished.

What are you going to throw when Barry doesn't bring them home. Where were you when Clinton sent troops to Kosovo?

These low lifes should be drafted into the military in order to educate them as to what it means to support their country.

If they don't want to serve ship them to North Korea.

Clinton said the troops would be in Kosovo for "about a year."

That was 10 years ago.

Ever wonder what goes through the heads of American people who would side with (MOON'-tuh-dahr ahl-zay-EE'-dee) over our own President?

Yeah, anyone who protests a war is anti-American and clearly is "siding" with the enemy.

Oh, wait. That's one of the freedoms our soldiers are fighting to defend. Dang.

Well, it's certain the protesters would never fight for it. They're just parasites.

Jan Fonda protested the war and finally apologized, 40 years to late.

When your on enemy ground getting shot at risking your life for the USA it hurts when idiots throw shoes protesting what you are doing to protect the USA.

Having been there and done that I know it is damaging!

He threw his shoes at OUR president, and these round heads are siding with him in 'solidarity'.

Is Kosovo the war where there were no US combat-related deaths? Just asking.

You mean, like those 'veterans against the war' groups that have proliferated in the last couple of years, as they've watched Bush & Co mismanage Iraq and Afghanistan?

They don't shower and if shoes were donated would that be considered torture?

Yeah, we should probably crack down pretty harshly on anti-war protesters, and remove their right to legally protest or to even gather. Hell, let's investigate all of them for anti-American activities, too. Restricting the very freedoms our soldiers are fighting for - I guess that takes care of that whole "they hate us because of our freedoms" argument. Well done - that'll show 'em.

The military is just a slice of the American citizenry. Even they have their mental defectives and malcontents.

Instead of throwing shoes the Americans should be active to oppose the two party corporate system

Is that your way of "honoring the troops?" So, you respect their service....until, based on their own experiences in war, they decide not to blindly adopt all GOP talking points? Wow, what a patriot you are. Better go polish up that 'support the troops' bumper sticker.
