    Jeeze, I guess watching an airshow is Stalinistic?
    A bit of selective outrage I think.

    There is regularly static displays at air shows. Is that problematic?
    What makes one hate a tank more than an A-10?
    I wouldn’t have a problem with a Freedom Class LCS shredding up the Potomac. What say you?

    Lots of people watch planes takeoff, fly, and land. Millions of people could watch the same planes where I live, if they wanted. The planes are distant, not in your face, and they're more of an abstraction and curiosity if you're inclined to watch.

    When a tank rolls down the street in your neighborhood, that's a little more in your face and aggressive. Not abstract. More direct, up close, and personal.

    I don't care about the Donald's tank parade. But there is a difference between seeing a plane at some distance and having a tank in your face.

    But the tanks will Not be rolling. They are being placed in a static position overnight tonight. They are no more menacing than the ones that sit in front of VFW’s across the country.

    I think Trump got the tank idea from Russia, China, NKorea and India. If we can do it, that is show off some teeth, why cannot Trump. :D

    Happy 4th of July guys.

    Let's for arguments sake say he wins a second term.

    What will you say then ?

    Wait a minute, did you say static ? as in nothing moves.

    No tanks rolling down the boulevard, no ballistic missiles being paraded

    The opposition will make a noise about everything. Ignore them.

    I don't think Trump dislikes anything Soviet/Russia. And he is not like most Americans.

    Well that would greatly depend on the popular vote vs the Electoral College again, now wouldn't it.

    If he loses the popular vote (again) by the greatest number in US history (again), then I'll say exact the same thing: The American people have spoken against Trump.

    Pretty sure that's only because they'd turn the boulevard into rubble if they did.

    Funny how the opposition in this case is the U.S. military.

    And exactly how would you know that? He sure as shit loves authoritarians and dictators. He wants tanks rolling down the boulevard, and the Joint Chiefs standing next to him on the parade stand.

    I'm sorry, but do you know anything about Donald Trump?

    Because he turned down our invite for Republic day. Maybe because he didn't want to see Russian stuff on display.

    If it was American maybe that would be different.

    But think about it, when have you ever had tanks and other stuff roll down streets for national day events ? never happened has it. Why.
