Perhaps it’s the goose stepping. Even if you’re not a North Korean, Chinese, or Russian, it is impressive. Perhaps we gotta outdo that impressive French military parade the President attended. But a military parade on the streets of Washington DC, with all the extra social, political, and economic turmoil facing this country? Seriously?
No doubt Americans will support anything that showcases the military and it will be a huge recruiting tool. We already have semi-military parades at inaugurations, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and the Fourth of July and that is usually good enough. But I’m not convinced that the President is only attempting to show up Kim Jong Un (and the rest of the world) as indicated in that tweet:
“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”
Why not take the opportunity to be the star of the greatest show with potentially even bigger ratings than “The Apprentice.” It’s just a thought. 😎
