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.

Do you think Trump could stand still for four hours to take the salute or will he employ a stand-in wearing an orange wig?

Fantastic idea. Hopefully he will invite Kim Jong Un.

Kim in an orange wig would be really something to see.

If Dennis Rodham asked him to, he would do it.
I'd like to see Kim in an Orange Wig standing next to Rodham followed by Trump wearing green face paint and gloves shaped like frog flippers.
I also want the tanks and rocket carriers all repainting with the emblems of Kekistan.

I like ICBM on parade.

The last time we had tanks rolling in Washington was during the eviction of the Bonus Army by MacArthur. Not one of our better moments.
I think he'll invite Putin, and try to impress Putin with our military might, parading down Constitution avenue.
It'll be less impressive when the multi-ton tanks crash through into the sewers, though.

Russians like parades of military might. In fact, many dictators like parades of military might.
What the hell the French were thinking, I don't know. Maybe a smaller country needs to wag its dick like that to dissuade stronger neighbors. Or maybe they just THINK they need to.
It's embarrassing for the leader with the largest military force on the planet to think he has to wag his dick, though.

Last time we had a huge military was in NYC at end of WW2. It was awesome.

>What the hell the French were thinking
The French did have a load of colonies, mainly in Africa.
I also got the impression that a lot of it for the French was honouring their dead and war-disabled.
(Largely gathered from reading and watching 'The Day of the Jackal').
