If this parade actually happens, it will show the world our president is more like Putin than Trudeau or May or Merkle. In other words, leaders of peaceful nations do NOT show off their military might, opting for acts of diplomacy and peace. Regardless, the District has already voiced their opposition to such an idea.

From WaPo, "An obvious cost of a military parade would be repaving asphalt wrecked by tanks and other heavy vehicles riding down Pennsylvania Avenue, last repaved after Trump’s inauguration. One of the U.S. Army’s most common armored vehicles, the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, for example, weighs 27.6 tons — about 14 times heavier than a 2016 Chrysler 300 sedan."

No parade. The money in this nation must be released to help our veterans. Pay their medical bills. Buy them homes. Whatever they need.
