Really? The NYC ticker-tape parade (of which it has hosted more than 200), was intended to honor the veterans coming home from Afghanistan.

Trump wants a parade of "military might" down the streets of the capital for no reason other than he thinks it will aggrandize him and he gets off on it.

See the distinction?

Also, local D.C. lawmakers want no part of it.

Once again you have lowered the bar even further FanDan. Just stick to things you love like everything that is anti-American, supports criminals and just makes you feel warm all over

It's a parade, people love parades. I can almost guarantee there will be no live munitions. You are NOT living in NK, and will not be forced to attend and if you do attend you are not required to applaud.

So we've gone from walk softly and carry a big stick to piss people off and act like a dick? I'm still glad Trump won the election but he's proving more and more everyday to be an insecure old man. This is like an 80 year old guy buying a corvette and driving in 40 mph in left lane of the highway. Ego ego ego. Lame.......

If the military gear was automated, ran without human intervention right past the WH on its own, there was no music, no pomp and circumstance, no celebration of the people who invented the equipment etc......Mostie would have a valid distinction. The military is all about the people. The defense contractors, the unique capabilities of our equipment and the people that operate it. The young people who give large chunks of their lives to join. The old Wiley vets who decide to stay in and guide those young people.

You cannot have a military parade in this country without honoring the military members. If you don’t understand that, then it’s tied to your terrible understanding of why Trump resonates with his supporters. Trump can no way in hell have a military parade without honoring the people. He’s shown over and over that he admires the military. You cannot separate our military from its members just because you think you can draw a line in what you think is Trump’s mind.

Walk softly and carry a big stick provides no influence.

Reagan knew it, and Trump is following that path.

If your gonna be the big dog, you gotta get off the porch and show everybody your the big dog.

Or you could travel the world bowing your head to every leader and knee cap your own military. You could draw imaginary red lines and make flowery speeches. But everybody eventually knows your big stick is a joke

Its funny then that so many republicans and military brass have come out against such a parade. Did you see what the Navy Seal who killed Bin Laden had to say about it?
