There is little doubt that Donald Trump was the only choice in the 2016 election when it comes to bolstering our nation’s military, despite his own dubious draft behavior.
That’s not to say that Trump doesn’t respect the military. In fact, his inclination to hire a number of high ranking U.S. generals to massively important posts within his cabinet says otherwise. Chalk the President’s former misjudgments up to being young and rich, let’s say, as there’s no denying now where the Commander in Chief stands.
On top of this invigorating return to law and order within the administration, and under the guidance of men such as Mad Dog Mattis, President Trump is now planning for an incredible display of military might as a message to those around the globe who witnessed a weakening of American forces under the disastrous democratic regime of Barack Hussein Obama.
“President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to plan a grand parade of the U.S. armed forces in Washington this year to celebrate military strength, officials said Tuesday.
“The Washington Post, which was first to report the plan, said Trump wants an elaborate parade this year with soldiers marching and tanks rolling…
“White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the request Tuesday evening. She said Trump wants the Pentagon to ‘explore a celebration’ that will allow Americans to show appreciation for the military.
“A Pentagon spokesman, Charlie Summers, said Pentagon officials are aware of the request and are ‘looking at options.’”
Given the recent metamorphosis that Independence Day and Memorial Day have gone through, turning from somber reminders of those we’ve lost to excuses to buy a new barbecue grill, the President’s move could have a significant impact on the way our young people learn about the might and sacrifice of our armed forces.
The event would double as a deterrent to nations such as North Korea, who themselves organize several such displays in any given year.
If there are going to be a number of urination competitions predicated on the power of a nation’s military happening throughout the world, the United States should at least win, right?
