Military parade is fantasy

Sunday, March 18, 2018

As a proud American and Vietnam veteran, I am appalled that we have a draft-dodger commander-in-chief who wants a military parade to show military strength in his honor. What a joke.

Supposedly, his parade would include armed troops marching in lock-step down Pennsylvania Avenue, with fighter jets crisscrossing overhead. This is not even practical, all at a cost of about $30 million.

Maybe this fantasy/joke will intimidate those “traitors” who did not stand and clap at his State of the Union address in January.

President Donald J. Trump sees himself at the same stature of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, and Kim Jong U n, who required such public adulation. These were not presidents but were dictators who wrote their history in blood.
