Tick off your hosts, Dubya style.

El presidente is visiting Her Royal Majesty in England. Always the polite guest, these are some of the thing his Secret Service demanded to assure his security while in London:

  • Immunity from prosecution for SS agents if they fire their weapons or kill protesters,
  • London police were asked to make sure he doesn’t see any protesters,
  • Shutting down the Tube – London’s subway,
  • the shipping in of battlefield weaponry to use against rioters,
  • Having the US Air Force patrol the skies above London using figters and Black Hawk helicopters,
  • Carrying around a “mini-gun” to protect him,
  • Having all British staff, including the Queen, wear ID BAdges
