Pence displays U.S. military might in a show of force in….Iceland

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, midway through a European tour that his boss was supposed to take, showed up in Iceland today with a massive show of force. Pence’s Secret Service detail was augmented with snipers on rooftops, helicopters hovering over buildings, bomb-sniffing dogs, the Reykjavik police force, backup police from neighboring towns, and a special Icelandic “Viking SWAT” police force. Oh yeah, and six military planes overflew the country prior to the visit.

All of this for an island of 350,000 people with the 3rd lowest murder rate in the world. Iceland is so peaceful that its President shops and goes to the hot spring baths without a security detail.

Trump said that Pence was “straight out of central casting” after interviewing him for VP
