Trump tells Pentagon to plan military parade

  • Trump orders Pentagon to start planning for GRAND MILITARY PARADE down Pennsylvania Ave

Retired Major General Paul Eaton on Wednesday responded to the news that President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to begin preparing for a military parade to celebrate the country's service members and fighting hardware.

For eight years, President Obama's administration worked hard to tell the world that America was done.

It will be a logistical nightmare.

"That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue". Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, tweeted Tuesday night that "a military parade costs millions".

Recall all the showy displays of power by regimes like the former Soviet Union or North Korea's Kim dynasty? Perhaps someone who wanted to bolster midterm electoral prospects?

Neither U.S. officials nor the U.S. -backed coalition have offered details on the identity of attacking forces. After the attack the coalition "conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression".

Trump was enthusiastic, the Washington Post reported. "This is apparently happening, though, so get ready".

Trump reportedly got the idea for a military parade when he visited France for Bastille Day previous year.

"It was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen", Trump told reporters in September, standing next to Macron at the United Nations General Assembly in NY.

Will Fischer, an Iraq War U.S. Marine veteran and spokesman for VoteVets, excoriated Mattis' suggestion that Trump's parade request was motivated by his deep "affection" for the military.

President Donald Trump's dream of hosting a military parade in Washington was met with widespread derision Wednesday, with critics seeing evidence of creeping authoritarianism. While the Pentagon does not yet have a cost estimate for how much another parade may cost, it is likely to be in the millions of dollars.

Cancer cocktail: hot tea plus twin sins
Based on the findings, the researchers offered some advice for people who smoke or drink large amounts of alcohol. The researchers' conclusion that people who smoke and drink excessively might want to cut out hot tea seems odd.

Given the rate at which the United States interjects itself into global military conflicts, it's safe to say that the rest of the world is already familiar with what our tanks and weaponry look like. Every dictator from Mussolini to Hitler to Stalin to Kim Jung-un has presided over military parades.

One option under consideration is for a parade on November 11 - which would be the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One.

Now, he wants his own - a bigger, better one - and has ordered top military leaders, including Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen Joseph F Dunford Jr to make it happen.

The 82nd Airborne Division took part in a January 12, 1946, parade in New York City which also featured Sherman tanks, LIFE reported. Does the Post truly think Trump wants this route so people would see his hotel?

Parades also marked the end of World War; one of the biggest, in NY, took place on January 12, 1946.

Maldives latest: President orders state of emergency to investigate 'coup'
In a video message posted on Twitter before his arrest, Gayoom told supporters he will not "give up on working for reform". He was also president between 1978 to 2008 when the Maldives , which relies on tourism, became a multi-party democracy.

It even speculates he may serve as grand marshal, although there has been no indication to that effect from the White House.
