Obama to face protests in UK visit
PressTV ^ | May 21, 2011 | SAB/AKM/HE, PressTV

Anti-war protesters are to stage a rally against US President Barack Obama on May 24, when he is expected to arrive in London for a state visit.

According to Stop the War Coalition, the demonstration titled as “Stop the Obama Wars” will be held outside Buckingham Palace at 17:30 GMT, exactly when the US president is to meet Queen Elizabeth for the full ceremonial welcome and banquet.

Stop the War revealed that anti war groups would welcome the US “War President” with protests, since he is the one who is paying for three wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.

“In just two years, the Nobel Peace Prize winner has attacked six countries -- two more than George W. Bush. He is spending more on the US military than any president in history,” Stop the War said.

In his three-day visit to Britain before heading to G8 summit in France, Obama will meet UK Prime Minister David Cameron. He will also address both Houses of Parliament.

ROTF!

Confusion ALWAYS follows when a "non-leader" without conviction outside of himself gets elected.

I bet it felt good to many however when Obama received that of which he didn't qualify for.

Will he issue a report from the former British East Africa?

I cannot wait for the gaffs our leader will make. Wonder what gifts he is bringing this time? Maybe a Churchhill decendant can be present for the award. Coming from the Irish free state should be a good start off point, please don’t tell His Brilliance they are independent so he can talk of “Teutonic” Shifts in world politics without regard to what the words actually mean.

Hopefully we get a better account of this state visit then we get from the MSM back here.

I bet his speech would go something like this until edited by the teleprompter:

Hello, I am your president, Obama, leader of the free world and all of mankind, holder of the sacred Lion, master of the universe, and grand potentate. The world trembles at my approach. I am here to say a few words to his queenship and loyal subjects. As you should know, I was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize as I have brought peace to my country and to my world. My administration has worked tiredlessly in promoting my ideals for all of my society. As a god like figure, actually neither god nor I have a birth certificate you know, I know what is best for the world. Why just the other day, I met with some guy from Israel and I attempted to explain to him my idea for how he should run his country, while it is on loan from my grace. I will have to recind that loan if he does not heed my orders. Yesterday, I visited some of my roots in another part of Britain, Ireland (sic). Bet none of you knew that, I have roots in Ireland. Well, I am a creature of the entire world. I am now searching if I have roots in South America too and my pal Chavez is putting together some documents that show I have roots there too. Now, I don’t want to bore you with a lot of details, so I will leave you with this message, just listen to whatever I say and you will be fine.
Remember, I have caused a teutonic shift in international relations in just a few short years. Wait till you see what I will accomplish when I vanquish those who will try to unseat me, fools that they are. Just remember, Teutonic shifts and be ready to speak German.

Bye for now.
My Magisty.

There have been protests everywhere he has gone in the free world.

The question is why the media covers some protests and not others.

Nobel Peace Prize winner has attacked six countries — two more than George W. Bush.

Media sits in celler with light out.

With another Icelandic volcano going off, all flights into and out of the UK might be cancelled over the next few days. His three day visit might turn out to last a lot longer.
