Trump has given the Pentagon marching orders: He demands a giant millitary parade ...


President Trump’s vision of soldiers marching and tanks rolling down the boulevards of Washington is moving closer to reality in the Pentagon and White House, where officials say they have begun to plan a grand military parade later this year showcasing the might of America’s armed forces

Dumb.

Trump continues to be a poor President for the USA, demonstrating poor presidential ability. Here he is wanting to copy France, Russia, North Korea.... wow.

Of course he was elected so he is the president we deserve currently.

I watched the Victory Day parade in Moscow a few years back, it was pretty impressive, especially when the Bears flew over, the ground shook.

It's more fun when you can rub homeless vets' face in the money you're pissing away while not taking care of them because "there's no money left". It sure is on-brand for Republicans.

It will be the best military parade ever.

But first there needs to be a law, which makes not cheering at the parade a crime. Then the police needs to sweep away all those disgusting homeless veterans, so they do not taint the image of this enormous parade. It think it would be awesome to begin at sunset and then have troops in black uniforms with torches in the hand march in the dark. It would be a glorious image.

I don't want to get accused for not supporting our military, because I do. However, this parade is about Trump's ego and authoritarian tendencies. I'm really concerned the end game is to turn the military and law enforcement against the people that don't support the president, people of color, and immigrants. This is starting to feel very odd, like shades of Germany post WW-I. Does anyone else have this uneasy feeling this is where it's going?

You don't HAVE to attend a military parade to say that you support the military. That's a false ideal that reeks of "if you're not with us, you're against us".

You can be critical of the country's military actions if you don't agree with them. You can support the military by thanking a veteran or volunteering to help them.

It's just another reason to send soldiers away from home to please the ego of an asshole.

However with all the training our Military does, I am sure they could come up with a training exercise to make it possible to have a formidable presence around DC to make such a parade possible. Put some Hovercraft down Pennsylvania Ave, have some Special forces demos on the Mall.

We have enough airshows, Open houses, local parades, and other items that allow communities to understand and appreciate the service our all volunteer Military performs for us.

Well immigrants and people of colour have had issues long before Trump became POTUS, let recall 911 and the issues that were created as a result, how about the increased number of shootings of people of colour while a person of colour was POTUS, if one says these issues are institutional versus the creations or instigation of a single individual, maybe we can finally start to resolve the issues.

This is pretty silly. The whole reason countries have military parades is to indulge in the fiction that they could contend with the US military.

It has never been necessary to make some sort of public spectacle of our military power... wonder why? Maybe because everybody knows, and already took our military seriously? Until now? This is probably about something Putin or Xi said to Trump that injured him. All the little green men in the world can't fix North Korea or deal with other powerful rivals.

What's to wonder? I love my country and want the best for it. 20 years in SuperMax sounds like fun but it would only serve to feed the Fox News Idiot Machine and keep the 30% Dumbshit Core energized.

A military parade, what for exactly? No amount of tanks and bombers can fix Trump's prenatal penis condition. Yet another thing Limp Dick isn't aware of which is the 1000+ military events and parades we already throw in cities and towns all over this country every year. He wants to be like Putin or Rocket Man? He should move to Moscow and rest Putin's sack on his chin full time. Once a week isn't sufficient.

IMO military parades are for boot camp. Not something that the enlisted guys and gals would be thrilled to be in. I was fine for boot camp but felt parading later was a waste if time - not appreciated at all.

Toss in the costs, especially costs of repairing all roads that those heavy tanks chew up, and Trump's Ego Parade is a waste of money. Much better spent elsewhere.

It is interesting that Trump was inspired by the Bastille Day parade of French's military, ironic as it celebrates the liberation of those in the Bastille prison for opposition to the then government. Trump is desperate to distract from his obscene Presidential mal-administration, to seek support from the military for his war he may go to if he gets really stupid, to keep his base happy and to mess with 'liberals'.
Some on the Pentagon have discouraged Memorial Day or 4th of July due to other conflicts (there is a big mass music and fireworks show on the Mall in DC on 4th of July), but maybe on Veterans' day (Nov. 11th) as this year would be 100 years since the end of WW I which the day represents in the USA and our then allies.
Beyond the sick political optics to the world from such an event, there is also the damage to roads and streets from the big tanks if used in the parade, massive security costs and just the overall costs that shows how wasteful this would be.

What’s surprising about it, tens of millions of people have watched it.

I really don’t see the big deal with the US having a parade, it’s a mob of soldiers marching down a street, talk about a storm in a teacup, and given the rapture Americans have with the military I’m surprised it isn’t an annual event.

It would be far more appropriate to support the many veterans in the US, through donations, healthcare etc. A millitary parade is just an ego trip for Trump and will only fly in the face of the many veterans. It would most likely cost millions of US Dollar tax payer money that is better used elsewhere.

Active military is part of our culture. Even a select few veterans are paraded around several times a year. Why does all that military hardware need to be paraded around too? Why not use that money to better fund the VA and/or find solutions to homeless veterans or vets with PTSD or vets with drug addictions? Why is stroking this man's ego more important?

Bush II was in the National Guard. Bush I was in the Navy. Reagan was in the Army. Carter was in the Navy. So on and so forth. TRump is the first president to demand a military parade. TRump also admires Putin like way too much admires him.

Finally, for all you Republicans who care deeply about the debt, how much will this cost to reposition all the troops and hardware and then paving all of the messed up streets all on our dime? I know deficits and debt does not matter when Republicans are in control.

That's exactly how it's going to be framed. Just go over to Fox News, right wing blogs or news sites and they will all be go on and on about how Trump is getting the "liberals" all worked up over this. You know however if Obama had done the same thing they would have had stroke.

Someone should give Joe Walsh the memo though.

Obama wasn't a King.

Trump isn't a King either. My side needs to quit treating him like one.

We don't elect Kings in this country, remember?

No military parade.

We had started doing that with marijuana. If someone is in possession of a small amount of whatever drug, write them a large ticket and offer rehab services. I don't have a problem with that. It still does not answer my question:

If we can have a huge military show because tRump wants one, why not have affordable health care and affordable education because we all want it?

It is definitely a storm in a teacup and not really worthy of any consideration. That is what the issue: That Trump wants it, is even considering it when it has no value and there is no need. Any need is self serving for Trump ("I want it.", "It looks cool and neat and makes me look better to my supporters.") so he should not have even brought it up.

The country has air and military shows every week across the nation that reach out to the public so we can see that our armed forces answer to us, to "we the people". These are family events and local etc. A notional "show of power" does none of this and is costly and unneeded.

It will likely go away soon as I suspect everyone will agree it is stupid (except Trump) but again it is that it was even brought up by him. I think he wants to be seen on the TV by millions, in his presidents box, being saluted at and himself saluting the troops. He wants veneration, he wants the picture of power, and that the power is him. He wants glory and gold and the adoration of millions...

As a blanket statement that doesn't work.
I think I get what you mean but I can't agree with it as an absolute, as a blanket statement.

Give him a military parade. Give him the Thunderbirds & Blue Angels performing in tandem. Give him a slew of ICBMs flying in the skies above DC. Give him all the B-52s in operation rumbling over his head. Give him a parade of every single Armed Forces personnel.

Give him everything!

It would be far more appropriate to support the many veterans in the US, through donations, healthcare etc. A millitary parade is just an ego trip for Trump and will only fly in the face of the many veterans. It would most likely cost millions of US Dollar tax payer money that is better used elsewhere.

Don't be ridiculous there's no money for that kind of healthcare bs :rotfl: Now should we have all the B-2s fly over head or just a few in this parade?

Does anyone even know what our military does? Beyond trot out at football games for a warm circle jerk? I don't think Americans have the faintest clue what they're supporting, other than 'fightin' for freedom o'er thurre so we don't hafta o'er hurre'.
