UP to 12 fighter-bombers are to be part of a massive security operation for President Barack Obama's visit to Darwin on Thursday.
Soldiers, federal and Territory police, and up to 500 US secret service agents will also keep the President safe.
The Australian Defence Department said the F/A-18 Hornets would be an ``important component'' of the security arrangements.
The President will lay a wreath at the USS Peary memorial in Darwin and talk to troops at the RAAF base.
A US official said: ``The President and Prime Minister Gillard together will address Australian troops in Darwin.'
Excuse me, but what good are fighter jets in one-man protection? Aren’t they theatre weapons?
What a perfect day for a round of golf.
Too bad 0bama is required to be in full campaign mode now.
ummm...is Darwin a hotzone or something?
OMG! The drama queen is at it again!
Where was it, where POTUS’ SS called up the British Navy, shrieking that they reposition a missile launcher on the foredeck of a ship birthed near the hotel ObaMugabe was staying? In fact the missiles featured were not war-shots at all, but demilitarized practice rounds.
This was at some Aussie hotel or something?
Obammy has LOTS of enemies/
Here it is:
Obama was screaming that the British Navy was going to blast Moochelle’s hotel room with a MISSILE in South Africa:
Does anyone recall that the (universally derided and hated) George Dubya Bush ever needed this kind of security, even when visiting our erstwhile allies?
...and on that topic, how much security did Obaama insist upon while on the trip where he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia?
Before I would give the OK to take out Osama Bin Laden ,I would ask one question. Will my family ever be safe ? Maybe the question Bush asked and didn’t like the answer.
Is he going there to recieve an award?
“Will my family ever be safe ? “
Just safe enough to pay for the bailout of phony paper makers, through disguised schemes like RICO-Federal-Beltway-Vampire-Care.
Maybe he’ll try a round on the beach and see a big ole honkin’ croc... get scared shotless and resign.
“Hitler had many bodyguards, he needed them.” From the documentary ‘Hitler’s Bodyguards’
Zero’s armed guard is even bigger.
1) You wouldn't ever be a great president.
2) Bush knew without asking that his family would never be safe whether or not he took out bin Laden.
Jets are good at taking out Armor, other jets or watercraft common to attacks by nations.
Maybe it’s the toys he has given to his communist/Muslim brothers that makes him paranoid. Could it be that he worries them or makes them jealous?
I wonder what he is so afraid of.
Lack of legitimacy.
