Wen's response was laid-back- he waited for the guy to finish shouting, watched the shoe hit the stage, waited for him to be taken out, then said in his normal level voice 'This kind of lowly stunt will never stand stand in the way of British-Chinese relations'.  


Thanks thepeop for your info.
As I said, the remarks reported, which I responded to, used the word "despicable" instead of "lowly".
I agree wholeheartedly that "lowly" , if that is the word Wen used, has a very different implication.
It certainly shows Wen in a different light.

As I said in an earlier post, I have a more positive impression of Wen than I have of Bush, and I hope "lowly" was the actual word used (well the Chinese equivalent) rather than the equivalent of "despicable".

honestly why can no one in the world land a good hit from close range with a shoe?  Is the state of athleticism among young people in the world truly so bad that they cannot hit a stationary target?

This will improve as soon as shoe throwing is an Olympic competition.

There are leaders. Like Bush.  Then again, there are great men. Like Premier Wen.

What differentiates leaders from great men is what they do AFTER events such as this takes place.

No charges were filed against the Iraqi journalist and he was released after it was determined that his shoe was just a shoe, and not some sort of weapon.  

The problem for the Iraqi is that he was a journalist, how many press conferences will he be invited to if this is how he acts?  Also many in the Iraqi community while they may hate bush to not respect his actions.  There are better ways to show your anger than throwing your shoes and spurting insults.
