           Trump Orders Pentagon To Hold Grand Military Parade In His Honor
     
     
       By Farron Cousins-       Feb

Confronted with the potential image of tanks and missile launchers rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue, some anxious it might resemble the massive military parades in North Korea, a source involved in inaugural preparations told previous year.

The White House confirmed reports Tuesday night that President Donald Trump is eyeing a parade to tout "America's great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe".

"I think we're all aware, in this country, of the president's affection and respect for the military", said Defense Secretary James Mattis.

But Trump had a military parade on his mind long before the July 14 event in Paris.

The White House pushed ahead Wednesday with plans to throw a grand military parade through the streets of Washington, brushing aside criticism that such a display could be an unnecessary show of raw military power.

United Kingdom court rejects bid by Julian Assange to have arrest warrant lifted
Earlier this month, Ecuador granted citizenship to Assange after officials decided his living situation was unsustainable. She said the Ecuadorean government is seeking a "dignified and just" solution in his case with the British government.

"We're going to have to try to top it", he told reporters afterwards.

"The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France", a military official told the newspaper.

"I used to watch them in Bulgaria", retired Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and National Security Agency, said on Twitter of these type of parades, another reference to the association of these events with totalitarian regimes. He said the Pentagon has been "putting together some options" for the parade to send to the White House.

The United States has previously held military parades to mark the end of wars, most recently in 1991 after the the Gulf War.

Some lawmakers chafed at the prospective costs. He didn't note that American troops remain in Afghanistan more than 16 years after toppling the Taliban, and that they're also present in Hussein's old Iraqi stomping grounds and in Syria.

Antonio Conte challenges Chelsea to 'prepare a statement' of support
The club's 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth last Wednesday showed worrying signs that the dressing room no longer back Conte. I don't want to exploit. "I think we are doing more (over-achieving)".

"This is not about a dictatorship. The cost of shipping Abrams tanks and high-tech hardware to Washington could run in the millions, and military officials said it was unclear how they would pay for it".

For Democratic Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, the possibility of a military parade hits close to home - literally.

"It was a tremendous day, and to a large extent because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue", Trump said. He later called the spectacle one of the greatest parades he had ever seen. But, you know, for people to recognize it, even though it's been a hundred years, we need to be able to salute our military and salute our veterans.

We may have a clown auto administration, but guess what, it is in charge of the most powerful military the world has ever known.
