America has certainly left its mark on Iraq. After severely embarrassing the Iraqi government by throwing his shoes at President Bush, moonbat hero Muntazer al-Zaidi is not having his fingernails pulled out before getting hauled in front of a firing squad, as would have been the procedure when his fellow Baathists were in power. Instead, he's preparing a lawsuit.
Al-Zaidi was roughed up in the course of his arrest, during which he's lucky he wasn't killed, considering that his attack could have been mistaken for an assassination attempt on both Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. He sustained a couple of bruises, making him the victim, deserving of compensation.
The secret plan has succeeded: Iraq has been infected with moonbattery, and will never again be a threat to its neighbors.
