Snapshots of Obama's visit to Australia
Partners in war crime:
Prime Minister Gillard and US President Obama leaving a press conference in Canberra. For the sake of world domination by US capitalists these two have supported and implemented plans that have cost the lives of millions of people. Once you get past the dazzle and celebrity of Obama’s recent visit it seems these criminals are planning more slaughter.
Not satisfied with waging war on the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, Obama announces, on behalf of his corporate masters, to the Australian Parliament and the world that the Asia-Pacific region is now in US sights. To a standing ovation he vowed to expand US influence in the Asia-Pacific region and “project power and deter threats to peace” (Obama speak for, “if you impede US corporations’ pursuit of profit we will attack you.”). In a message that threatens the entire Asia-Pacific region Obama declared, “The United States is a Pacific power, and we are here to stay!”
Commander in Chief Obama addresses his troops from the Australian Army, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Air Force in the presence of Deputy Sheriff Gillard. Under the ALP the Australian military has been integrated into the US armed forces day-to-day operations and training, with many Australian bases becoming ‘joint Australian-US facilities’ and a permanent base for 2500 US Marines announced for the Northern Territory.

Greens leader Bob Brown turns his back on the anti-war movement to ingratiate himself and his party with war criminal Obama. In 2003, when war criminal George W. Bush addressed parliament, Brown’s repeated heckling of Bush’s speech saw his removal by the parliament’s sergeant-at-arms (below).
