A Disturbance In The Force

Darth Cheney goes Down Under:
Mr Cheney arrives in Sydney on Thursday after a two-day visit to Japan.

He will have breakfast on Friday with members of the Australian-American Leadership Dialogue and then give a speech to about 300 guests on the US-Australia Alliance. Later that afternoon, he will meet Mr Rudd. Most of Saturday will be spent with Mr Howard and some of his senior ministers.
This is going to be another interesting week in Australian politics. What's the Big Dick's agenda?

I would be more concerned about what sort of deals Darth Cheney is offering Rudd. Put on your tin foil hats, folks.

UPDATE:
The Stop The War coalition are planning some "Chain Up Cheney" protests on Thursday night and Friday morning. Why not get out there and support them?
RALLY: 5.30PM THURSDAY FEBRUARY 22, SYDNEY TOWN HALL

PROTEST: 8AM FRIDAY FEBRUARY 23 @ SHANGRI-LA HOTEL, CNR ESSEX ST & GEORGE ST THE ROCKS
(Cheney will be giving a speech inside the hotel at approx 9.30am)

The STW website includes some interesting reading. This article by Mike Carlton last Saturday was a good read.
