Nay Sertorio, if you read the link provided by Jim, it's not a NK-like parade than Trump has in mind. :)
"The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France," the military official said, according to the Post. "This is being worked at the highest levels of the military," the official added.



He saw people like these, but wants to see more of them. And not in Paris only, the show must go to Washington.

There are other countries he could look to for inspiration for this sort of wasteful display of militaristic nationalism.

Those were exclusively special troops used only by NATO for instance in the Balkans or in Afghanistan, or by the UN in peace keeping missions in Africa. They are not used to project (non-existent) Portuguese power or to threaten anyone. And they have been very much praised by the people they were sent to protect, not having ever given rise to any complaints because of rape, murder or paedophilia, as has happened in countries which have had to put up with American, British or French troops...

Just facts. Do facts bother you?... I wasn't the one who went mining the web for obscure videos of Portuguese troops to try to ridicule them...

1. It took ten seconds to find that.

2. It's not Portuguese troops who look ridiculous here.

I don't mind a parade but it should be for an occasion, not for Trump.
