So the American President is coming and suddenly we’ve got extra security around the capital because of a "heightened threat of terrorist attack". That’s a coincidence right?
There’s been more and more comparisons around recently between what’s happening in Iraq and what happened in Vietnam. The United States need to learn the lessons of that conflict. Send Rambo in early this time!!
... and if the treat from al-Qaeda doesn’t materialise, well, then those extra security measures will come in handy in making sure those pesky little demonstrators are kept in check
