Bush 'n Boots

Booting up: George W. Bush may have had shoes thrown at him in Iraq, but the president's invasion left behind one footwear trend: cowboy boots, or "boose" as the locals call them. "I wear boose because they are American," one young man told Agence France-Presse. Most cowboy boots aren't made in the United States, though; instead, they are imported from Turkey, Italy, or, cheapest of all, China. Above, a vendor

Oh yeah. They hate us in Iraq for invading and destroying their country! Of course, the people who think this are the same people who wouldn't be caught dead in cowboy boots themselves.
