After Bush, shoe-cide attack on Chinese Premier

After Bush, shoe-cide attack on Chinese Premier: "Following the incident, Wen said: 'This despicable behaviour cannot stand in the way of friendship between China and the UK'. He was then ushered away by security personnel."

Haha... the Chinese premier calling throwing of a show despicable behavior!

I do think that the Chinese Premier should have been allowed to finish his speech. I also don't condone throwing a shoe at an unarmed defenseless person. But I do wonder what would happen to a citizen of China if he/she had thrown a shoe at the premier at a speech in China. Also, how different would the shoe thrower be treated than the treatment the Iraqi show thrower would have suffered under Saddam's regime....
