I would like to think that a display like this would be the icing on the cake to some people who were still teetering on the fence as to whether they could continue to support this "regime". To put it into perspective, what was spent PER DAY for this excursion, was the equivalent of a year's salary for yours truly. That's quite a way to show your support for a bereft friend, or a your daughter's vacation, or a so-called bridge building visit with Spanish royalty, whatever the excuse du jour may be.
You don't even have to understand what's being said in this clip to know what's going on. The images speak for themselves.
