Trumps marching orders to the Pentagon: Plan a grand military parade

Source: Washington Post


By Greg Jaffe and Philip Rucker February 6 at 6:03 PM

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.

Trump has long mused publicly and privately about wanting such a parade, but a Jan. 18 meeting between Trump and top generals in the Pentagon’s tank — a room reserved for top secret discussions — marked a tipping point, according to two officials briefed on the planning.

Surrounded by the military’s highest ranking officials, including Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joe Dunford, Trump’s seemingly abstract desire for a parade was suddenly heard as a presidential directive, the officials said.

“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” said a military official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the planning discussions are supposed to remain confidential. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”

Add repairs to repair the streets to the taxes in the wings for the 99%, or the ones who really can't afford such obscene frivolity and national wiener wagging.

Because of the big guns you know.

I was a disabled civilian US ARMY heavy equipment mechanic, the Hemmt weighs 70,000 pounds, it's the 8 to 10 wheeled multi-use transport and while drivable in paved roads easily if the asphalt isnt very thick it could tear it up a tad due to the four wheel steering.

Could we have a parade when he gets impeached?

15. I saw this coming when he was at the parade in France

He had wanted such a parade for his inauguration, and was extremely upset when told it wasn't possible. Then he was invited by French President Macron to attend their Bastille Day parade (which Trump naturally assumed was in his honor) and Donnie Two Shoes' mind was made up. Not only would he have a parade on July 4th, it would be the BIGGEST PARADE in U.S. history. For reference, here are photos from the French parade:


(Think Thunderbirds and Blue Angels, plus every other aircraft in the military inventory.)


(Think Nixon's "palace guard" uniforms)

But we all know this is the image that makes him piss in his pants:


Unfortunately for him, this is North Korea's military parade.

Among other things that must be considered are the tremendous costs -- into the millions, destruction of the D.C. streets, loss of training days for the troops and the continued growth of his power to bend the country to his will and change its image in the world.

69. I'm picturing an Animal House style attack on the parade

Not so much the property damage of it, but think if we could hundreds of people along the parade route and at some point they all jumped the barriers, threw off their coats to reveal themselves in clown garb, and did nothing but march with the parade? No signs, just plain goofiness, throwing candy, mugging for the spectators and cameras, those who can, juggle, etc.

73. From The Guardian

(snip)

A date for the event has not yet been chosen. Options include Memorial Day on 28 May, Independence Day on 4 July and Veterans Day on 11 November, which would coincide with the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war. If the route includes Pennsylvania Avenue, it would pass by Trump’s controversial hotel.

But the Post added: “The cost of shipping Abrams tanks and high-tech hardware to Washington could run in the millions, and military officials said it was unclear how they would pay for it.”

79. Evita


[Che:]
Face the facts, the Rainbow's starting to fade
I don't think she'll make it to England now

[Aide #1:]
It wasn't on the schedule anyhow

[Che:]
You'd better get out the flags and fix a parade
Some kind of coming home in triumph is required
