Shoeing v. To fill in.

A shoeing is a well administered and carefully conducted physical assault on the enemy / whoever that at no times exceeds the reasonable use of force that a particular circumstance warrants.

A well executed assault that falls well within the reasonable use of force parameters, as agreed in court by milky handed 250K a year lawyers, is described as a "right shoeing"

What constitutes an Excessive Shoeing is still being debated in The Hague by a bunch of Chardonnay drinking, bree munching guardianistas ... so expect a decision that a slap on the wrist is too much fairly soon!
