Security, Security, Wherefore Art Thou, Security: The Boy King Visits Germany

I am on the World Socialist Web Site mailing list. Even though they're (sometimes) loony-lefty, they do have some fairly good analysis and articles on their site.

I was amazed to read this article about the extraordinary security measures being taken ahead of His Chimpliness' visit to Germany later this week.

And I do mean extraordinary security measures.

They are, for all practical purposes, shutting down an entire German city. No vehicular traffic, no air traffic, the highways and roads shut down, especially in the area around where the Boy King will be, and the populace essentially under lockdown.

Why?

Because they know that Bush and his regime are not popular in Germany. Bush is about as popular there as a MADD activist is at a Friday night kegger on campus.

The Germans despise him with a passion and his handlers know this.

Therefore, all this "protection" isn't there to protect him from attack. It's there to insulate him from the truth as much as they possibly can.

This is shameful.

What was that about "restoring honor and integrity to the White House" I remember a certain faux Texan proclaiming a few years back.

If you're so sure of yourself, Georgie Boy, then come out of that shell and face the people who oppose you. Otherwise, you're just a cowardly little boy in way over his head. Why don't you just come out and admit that and save us a whole bunch of trouble.
