DoD cosplay for what self-aggrandizement. Trump has said he wants to try and top the French Bastille Day parade he attended last year in Paris. It lasted just over two hours. "We had a lot of planes going over and we had a lot of... [Read More]

Last summer, President Trump went to Paris and saw the extravaganza on Bastille Day — all the bells and whistles. Few countries put on a military parade like the French. Trump, of course, decided he wanted a parade of his own. There has been much commentary, for and against. Here is my own, FWIW. "FWIW," as you almost certainly know, stands for "for what it's worth." I am finding myself adopting social-media abbreviations by the day. I'm not worried, yet. Anyway, Trump's experience in Europe put me in mind of President Nixon —... [Read More]

Now "45" wants a parade. He wants it in November, probably before the mid-term elections. Some see it as move to mobilize his base and stroke his own ego; others actually believe that he wants to celebrate and honor members of the military. It's been reported that he wants the parade, because he saw a parade in Paris on Bastille Day. If he went to the zoo, would he want zebras and tigers roaming the lawn at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue next? [Read More]

The Bastille Day parade celebrates citizens' rights, not military might. "It was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen," President Donald Trump told reporters at the United Nations General Assembly, two months after he witnessed the celebration of Bastille Day on the Champs-Élysées in Paris on July 14. "It was military might," he added. "We're going to have to try to top it," he apparently joked to French President Emmanuel Macron, who was sitting nearby. But it was no joke. Now he has ordered the Pentagon to prepare his own parade, "like the one in France," as... [Read More]

Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin has introduced a bill that would prevent the allocation of federal funds toward any kind of military parade or exhibition in the nation's capital. The Democrat's measure is in response to President Donald Trump's interest in having a massive military display similar to one he witnessed in person last year at France's Bastille Day celebration in Paris. "We don't need to flex our muscles to showcase our military hardware," Cardin said in a statement. "Our brave military men and women flex their might around the world every day on behalf of our nation. [Read More]

(File photo) In one of the few cities that still holds a Loyalty Day parade, local veterans and military family members interviewed at the American Legion in Rutland were divided and skeptical about President Donald Trump's proposed July 4 military parade. Trump said his idea was inspired by last summer's Bastille Day demonstrations in Paris. The plan is estimated to cost about $21 million. "I think we're strong enough, and we don't need a parade," said Bill Barrett, Rutland resident and Army National Guard veteran. "We... [Read More]
