Iraq as "The Tender Trap"?

Re: An Iraqi Reporter's Throwing His Shoes at the U.S. President:

A little quote from Sammy Cahn's "The Tender Trap" (recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1955)

...And all at once it seems so nice;
The folks are throwing shoes and rice.
You hurry to a spot
That's just a dot on the map
Then you wonder how it all came about;
It's too late now there's no getting out.
You fell in love, and love is the Tender Trap!

(Emphasis added.)
