Default A military parade for the USA

I mean no disrespect when I say this is ridiculous

The supreme military of this world doesn't need to put on a show for trump

US President Donald Trump has ordered Pentagon and White House officials to begin planning a military parade in Washington similar to the Bastille Day parade he witnessed in Paris in July, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

"The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France," the military official said, according to the Post. "This is being worked at the highest levels of the military," the official added.

A White House official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the parade planning was in the "brainstorming" stage and nothing had been decided.

Millions more of dollars spent on stupid things. The US military spends too much of the US budget as it is, nevermind adding in more idiotic Fedual traditions. Just because Putin has a big line of soldiers saluting him doesnt mean Big Donald needs it to for gods sake. However I do expect something like this from Trump, i´ll give you 5 to 1 that if the next President is a Democrat it will be scrapped immediatley.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Honoring our troops and veterans should be a high priority. If they put on a parade where no politicians got to speak, that would be ideal.

Never give up, never surrender.

No matter how badly you want to, don't be like me. Do not underfund your war chest.

Have you read CN101 lately?

Having some sort of memorial service with some troops marching about in memory of those who had fallen for their country would be fine, just not a whole parade like the ones in highly militarised and aggressive countries. Just leave the politicians out of it.
