If President Donald Trump wants to hold a massive parade honoring the military, he should hold it in Pyongyang, not Washington.

The boulevards there are well built, long and wide, perfect for a showy and orchestrated military parade, which is why North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un holds so many of them.

Massive tanks, assault vehicles and rocket carriers do not tear up the pavement or knock down statues of him, his father or his grandfather, or adjoining buildings in downtown Pyongyang.

The people are protected as well. In Kim Jong Un’s parades there are no spectators lined up to view the parades because, outside of the bigshots on the reviewing stand, everybody else is marching in th

Isn’t Lowell, MA one of those down-trodden NE cities? It’s easy to see why.

Is he advocating that we should invade & conquer so we can hold a victory parade?

Lowell has indeed hit hard times, but the paper’s ownership, Media Newsweek Group, explains a lot.

I don’t know what he’s advocating but it’s a stupid to even contemplate something like that.

Even my dumbass local newspaper ran a cartoon showing Trump and Fat Boy in agreement about military parades. But if not this, they’d find something else to ridicule, which doesn’t matter much since no one trusts the media anymore.

Honestly, I would fully support a parade of American military might right down the center of Pyongyang!!!!

We could start with a B-52, B-1 and B-2 Flyovers and bombing demonstrations, then have some nice artillery bombardment exhibitions, show off the capabilities of the M-1 Abrams, then have the Army and Marines parade down the main Boulevard and end it with Trump planting an American Flag in fat boys forehead!

Keep stepping into the cow patties you stupid leftists. This notion of working with these idiots in the spirit of “bipartisanship” is beyond reality! These people are absolute loons!

“The boulevards there are well built, long and wide, perfect for a showy and orchestrated military parade, which is why North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un holds so many of them.”

Liberals drawing moral equivalency: American President Trump equals North Korean dictator.

Easy to understand why leftist rags favor NK over Trump. They favor anything that would invade this country and eliminate Christianity, Whites and the Constitution.

They want this country destroyed, and built up as a marxist dictatorship. Bammy tried to make it so, but didn’t completely succeed.

Apparently, Chuck Schumer wanted to have a military parade during the Obama mal-administration. That was okay, of course, because Obama was special.

Now that Trump wants a parade, he’s obviously Napoleon...

Peter Lucas is very conservative and a good writer.
He’s having fun in this column.

“Literally Kim Jong Un” doesn’t roll of the tongue as easily as “Literally Hitler!!!”.

President Trump wants a celebratory, red-white-blue parade with lots of American flags - one that honors brave Americans - not one that intimidates its citizens.

HA!

Reminds me of the old joke:

Q: Why is the Champs-Élysées in Paris lined with trees?

A: Because the Germans like to march in the shade.

Liberals can’t pass up any opportunity to demonstrate their hatred for our military.
