I want a parade, in fact I want several parades. On June 10th, 1945, while US marines were still fighting and dieing in the Pacific, there was a ticker tape parade in NYC for Ike, our soldiers, and their victory in Europe. A month and a half later, and about two weeks after the Emperor of Japan addressed his people, there was a parade in NYC for Gen. de Gaulle, as the interim President of liberated France. A few weeks later there was a parade in NYC for Gen. Wainwright, hero of Corregidor. About a month later, a parade in NYC for the head of the Pacific Fleet, Adm. Nimitz. A few weeks later a parade for Truman. A couple months later a parade for Adm. 'Bull' Halsey. March of the following year a parade for Churchill. Where the hell are our parades? I want a parade for the soldiers who defeated the Taliban in Afghanistan, and a parade for Karzai. I want a parade for the marines, sailors, pilots, and soldiers who defeated the Iraqi army, and a parade for Bremer. I want a parade for all the marines and soldiers who have protected and rebuilt Iraq as the Iraqi people got their country back on it's feet. I want a parade for the Iraqi soldiers who stood up for themselves, their families, and their country. And I want a parade for Pres. Bush. Are we at war or not? Why are we not celebrating our victories? Are we going to let liberal leftist propaganda shame us into dwelling on real and imagined failures rather than rejoicing in success? If we do then we lose the psychological battle they are waging against us. I want a god damned parade!!
