“IS AUSTRALIA ON THE VERGE OF WAR?”
The United States’ Vice-President Joe Biden is in Melbourne on official business.
But make no mistake, Biden’s entourage and security detail is a very serious matter & most Melburnians are now realising the enormous task it is to host one of the most powerful officials on earth.
Officially, Biden is in Melbourne to launch the new cancer & research centre at the Peter McCallum hospital/centre.
President Barack Obama has put Mr Biden in charge of what is called a “moonshot” research drive to see rapid advances in cancer research.
He’s also Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop’s special guest for today’s AFL clash between her team, the West Coast Eagles and Carlton at the home of football, the MCG.
But let’s consider a trip down under is some 12 hours even in ‘Airforce II’ and the U.S. is only in Australia for three nights.
#15MinutesofFame doesn’t know too many celebrities that would make this trip let alone a man of Biden’s power.
Secret Service agents have both planes secure, electric stairs at the ready in case of emergency and 2 US Airforce planes that transports his bullet proof Escalade’s & Lincoln Limousines.
Biden will meet with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in Sydney Monday morning after a brief tour of Boeing in Melbourne.
With the world’s terror forecast at heightened levels and only months away from a new President of the United States of America, it’s any wonder America is rallying its constituents.
Check-out the transport for Barak Obama’s Second-in-Charge …. WOW!
