Frelsarinn Bush… setur bæ í herkví
Tight security around the president’s stop in Mainz, a medieval city on the Rhine River where he held talks with Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, did little to endear Bush to residents there. Kindergartens were shutdown and river traffic was halted, local authorities said by telephone. Garbage bins were hauled away and 1,300 manhole covers were welded shut because of fears of bomb threats.
The city was under what one newspaper called “house arrest,” and people were advised not to peek out their windows at Bush’s motorcade. (src)
Já, hann er svo mikill alþýðumaður hann Bush. Og vinsæll. Og virtur.
Eða þannig, með réttu.
Bær settur í herkví af því að dauðyflið skankaðist þarna um á fundi. Ekki horfa út um gluggann! Er þetta Beirút fyrir áratug eða Írak nútímans eða Mainz dagsins í dag?
